* Creator/Jackie Chan's first starring role, ''Film/SnakeInTheEaglesShadow'', is about two rival schools, Snake Hand and Eagle Claw. Eagle Claw has exterminated almost every student from Snake Hand. Jackie becomes the last student of the Snake Hand, and incidentally is able to fight the master of Eagle Claw without being killed, so he learns about his style and [[YinYangBomb combines both of them]] into the style that names the film.

* Being the quintessential FightingSeries (at least in Manga), ''DragonBall'' of course has this, with Goku learning the Turtle Style from Master Roshi, while his rival Crane Hermit's teaches his students styles of brutal assassination. Goku fights two members of the Crane School, Crane's brother Tao and his star pupil, Tien. Tien defeats Goku the first time, but, in a rare occurrence for this trope, his HeelFaceTurn begins even before Goku eventually bests him.

A subset of this trope comes in the form of members of a rival school (or even an [[ArrogantKungFuGuy unaffiliated challenger looking to show his prowess]]) going to other dojo and challenge the sensei or top student to a match, usually as an excuse to completely ransack the dojo, maim everyone inside, and steal a memento of his victory (typically the dojo's marquee). This kind of act, whose exact term is ''dojoyaburi'' (道場破り, "dojo storming"), is TruthInTelevision, and there are stories about brutal dojo wars in the ancient Japan and more recently in the [[UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts Brazilian vale tudo]] scene

* Judo founder Jigoro Kano had to defeat several other jujutsu schools, among them Teshin Yoshin-Ryu and Ryoi Shinto-Ryu, in order to push his own and create the art as we know it. Ironically, he had to endure a massive loss when his school lost to the Fusen-Ryu faction, from where he brought the groundfighting principles to his art. * So common was this in Japan that Kyokushin karate founder Mas Oyama was GenreSavvy enough to keep [[BatterUp baseball bats bats]] on his dojo in case of a dojoyaburi.dojoyaburi. * In Brazil, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu and luta livre schools were bitter enemies, as they featured opposite combat philosophies and taught different social demographies (BJJ was the martial art of the high class and Brazilian elite, while LL dojos were cheaper and friendlier to lower classes and poor people). Eventually Brazilian jiu-jitsu side, led by the ubiquitous Gracie family, got the upper hand and expanded internationally via the UltimateFightingChampionshio, while luta livre became a shadow of itself and almost faded out. ** Even inside the Brazilian jiu-jitsu side and the very Gracie family there were important dojo wars. Hélio and Carlson Gracie's schools were rivals due to their different approaches to grappling, while another branch of BJJ led by Oswaldo Fadda was against the Gracie doctrine overall. * Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling, which boasted that professional wrestling was the strongest martial art in the world, was notorious for shutting the doors to its dojo when someone came in to challenge any of the professional wrestlers and then giving out {{No Holds Barred Beatdown}}s to the unlucky challengers.

** The two styles get revived after the events of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' in ''VideoGame/DragonBallOnline'', though the rivalry is more [[FriendlyRival friendly]] in nature since they're headed by Krillin and Tien Shinhan. There's still a schism between their philosophies, inspired by what each took away from their time fighting alongside [[TheHero Goku]]: the New Turtle School is all about [[SupportPartyMember playing support]], while the New Crane School focuses on performing powerful, decisive [[KiManipulation ki]] attacks.

* In ''Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger'' and ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'', three Rangers are from the Hayate/Wind Ninja Academy and two are from the Ikazuchi/Thunder Academy. They clashed at first with the Thunder ninjas acting as PsychoRangers to the Wind trio, but eventually pulled together to fight the BigBad. ** Almost the entirety of ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'' is about the battles between the heroic [=GekiJuken=] Beast Arts school and the evil [=RinJuken=] Akugata school.
