Most often, but not always, the two masters were students of the same martial arts style before branching off to different styles: the protagonist usually (but not always) learning under the benevolent master who [[PacifistDojo teaches wisdom and self defense]], while the rival school is run by an EvilMentor and is [[ThugDojo characteristically ruthless, aggressive and brutal]].

to:

* As they draw significant influence from UsefulNotes/EuropeanSwordsmanship, (see RealLife below) the Literature/ElsabethSoesten books have this come up quite often. In ''Bait And Switch'' Elsabeth and Husson nearly get into a duel over the superiority of their respective masters.




to:

* Comes up throughout the history of UsefulNotes/EuropeanSwordsmanship as well. The rivalry between the Brotherhood of St. Mark and Federfechter in particular stands out, as the former held a monopoly on instruction in the Holy Roman Empire, which the latter infringed upon.

A subset of this trope comes in the form of members of one school (or even an [[ArrogantKungFuGuy unaffiliated challenger looking to show his prowess]]) going to the other dojo and challenging the sensei or top student to a match, usually as an excuse to then completely ransack the dojo, maim everyone inside, and steal a memento of their 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 historic Japan and more recently in the [[UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts Brazilian vale tudo]] scene

Very often comes up in FightingSeries. This situation often involves or ends with the main students from both schools eventually becoming friends or at least allies, usually after [[DefeatMeansFriendship one of them defeats the other,]] effectively ending the feud, or turning it into a [[FriendlyEnemy friendly rivalry]] (if it wasn't already) instead.

** 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.

* 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.

* 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.
