Best Fight Scenes: Jean-Claude Van Damme

(Born Jean-Claude Camille Francois Van Varenberg) This Belgian martial artist is known for his perfect splits and incredible kicks. Jean-Claude Van Damme started out as a competitive Karate fighter and later lead a Kickboxing career winning all 18 of his victories by knockout. His first major film role was as Ivan Krushensky, the antagonist of the 1986 film “No Retreat, No Surrender”. But he would not reach international fame until portraying Frank Dux, the alleged real life underground martial arts champion, in the 1988 film “Bloodsport”. In 1989, he starred in another martial arts movie classic, “Kickboxer”, then cemented his status as a Hollywood action star with 1993’s “Hard Target”. Although now well past the peak of his film career, he has matured as an actor with 2008’s “JCVD” widely regarded as his best acting performance to date where he depicts a fictionalized yet earnest version of himself. Besides his background in Shotokan Karate and Kickboxing, Jean Claude-Van Damme has also trained in Taekwondo, Muay Thai, and even Ballet which he believes to have been far more physically demanding than his prior martial arts experience. He even won the bodybuilding title of “Mr. Belgium”. Here’s a compilation of my favorite Jean-Claude Van Damme fight scenes.List of movie featured in order of appearance:1. Bloodsport 2.

JCVD used to be in a pretty good shape, respect!

JCVD is one of my hero's, completely underrated, he deserves much more attention and fame than he got. I spent my childhood trying to do his signature splits kick. didn't work out so well sadly. plus, where is the fights from The Quest? those definitely deserve to be on this video.

Let's talk about JCVD a bit, as a martial artist. This video serves as a good example of the importance of direction and choreography in martial arts films. I think we can all agree that the Bloodsport fight is...quite silly. But also note that in the same era, he made No Retreat, No Surrender. Also a very silly movie, but for different reasons. But look at those fight scenes! Holy shit. JC moves like a lubed snake. He's a great martial artist that was sadly too often under-utilized by directors and choreographers, in my opinion. Imagine if JCVD went to Hongkong in the 80's and went for villain roles in Jackie Chan films instead? He would surely not be the campy legend that he is in the West today, but we'd see some stunning fight scenes, for sure.\n\nJC has done some of his best work after leaving the theatres and going straight-to-DVD/BD, especially in fight scenes. He had a great fight with Sean Adkins in The Shepherd, and I know I keep bringing up Universal Soldier III and IV, but he's great in those (also terrifying as FUCK in IV). I loved his villain role Expendables 2. \n\nJCVD is great. He's not the fastest fighter out there, but he still moves gracefully, displays flexibility and a great build at 55 years of age. But most IMPORTANTLY...he's a charismatic and entertaining actor.\n\nMake a vol. 2 and include the Volvo truck advert at the end ;)\n\nAnd if you make a Dolph Lundgren one, include the bit where he breaks bricks and massive chunks of ice on live television in Sweden a few years ago while singing, dancing and playing drums to A Little Less Conversation by Elvis Presley ;) I am not making this up.

To bad Bloodsport was based on the delusions of Frank Dux
James Lin
I like how in his movies the asian guy is the big guy...
James Moore
Van Damme next to Bruce Lee... I started watching this incredible fight when I was 8 years old😘 very incredible and strong fight by Van Damme... But Bruce Lee number one best fighter.

Just so we're clear, JCVD would tune Chuck Norris up. Flying roundhouse destroys standing roundhouse anyday.

Choreography was not realistic. More ballet than true fighting. Van Damme was a super athlete..made marshal arts look good
Maciej lukas
He best fight with Atilla Lionheart !
Manu Christiaen
You can say many things about his acting, but JCVD’s techniques were good and well choreographed in the movies..

all bolo has is a palm strike, his kicking ability is so limited.
Taylor Pack
They need to get him a few more movies for widely released, he’s too famous to not have bigger movies than straight to video, I wish he’d remake Hard Times (1975) movie with Charles Bronson, he’s play Bronson’s part perfect, hell he wouldn’t even have to talk much either
Tony Liu
i gotta admit, the No Retreat No Surrender fight looks greatly/better choreographed than Bloodsport and Kickboxer
Tronic Yumcha
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAahhhh AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Van Damme Fan
Best Van Damme Movie ever!!!
Welcome To My World
I heard that Johny Cage was based on him. I see the resemblance. I’m gonna go buy a few cups now.
Yuri Boyka
Great video!!!
Yōjinbō 用心棒
van damme vs michael jai white was great. Hard to believe especially since MJW only became more popular only many years later after the movie was made.
Zamzami Zami
Keren nice

Van damn only lost because he is the bad guy, so they make the good guys win but in life he would’ve kick the shit of that kid in the end
ace subspace
regeneration is still the best action movie ever sequenced
aslAnpenCe100
Van Damme, C. Chan, Arnold, S. Stalone Best from 90`
bigfatdick5000
Jean he's my childhood hero. Lion Heart, Bloodsport (Frank Dux in this film), can't recall how many times I've re winded the VHS tape in my childhood to watch the movies over and over again......
camino kid
No retreat no surrender is better though probably his best
darkrider08
Jean-Claude Van Damme is the best!
dunruden
Always feel sorry for Bolo. He's always the bad guy, and always gets the tripes beaten out of him. I believe he and Bruce Lee were good mates off screen.
gileet84
Back then they kicked you so hard it replays multiple times
gowdaflow
Bruce Lee was the ultimate martial artist no doubt.. but, if you grew up in the 90s, Bloodsport was the one movie that inspired us all. I saw it when I was 10 and I still like it today.. a true classic!

Van Damme , mie mea placut si in rolurile negative ,a avut mare experienta mare , a fost actor deosebit de bun , foarte talentat in arte martiale , si foarte bun sportiv .
patrick wasike
The choreograph in blood sport is childish
redplaguethe3rd
Van Damme was and still is one of my favorite childhood icons from back in the day. My favorite movies besides No Retreat, Bloodsport and Kickboxer include:\n-Universal Soldier\n-Double Team (this one was really fun)\n-Knock Off (kinda silly, but still fun. Love anything where he gets to go to Hong Kong)\n-Double Impact (my brother and I love this film so much. We always pretended to be Chad and Alex! I was Chad, my brother would be Alex)

Blood Sport,Is not a simple sport.
sol paurillo
.. Scary but I strust van dame he win this fyt.
tharock220
The Bloodsport final match was so great because it wasn't the hero getting beat up and finding a way to win at the end. Van Damme's character was the best from the get go, and it wasn't particularly close save for the cheating.

WHITE WOULD SMASH HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
