In Western-made works, Asian characters, especially those who are otherwise unassuming Funny Foreigners, are likely to know some kind of martial arts and demonstrate it proficiently, if not superlatively. For instance, the stereotypical "Jap" character in many Western works written in the first half of the 20th century will probably demonstrate his jujitsu skills on some other character at some point.
