I believe that in the U.S., at least, marital arts movies (form early Green Hornet episodes on) promoted the belief that a kung fu or MA expert xould defeat several opponents at once. The original MA appeal was that a small would be able to defeat a single, larger opponent (sans MA training). Then Kato comes along and fights an army of guys, etc.
