    History's Greatest Disciple Kenichi is about this weakling kid who trains with masters in karate, ju jutsu, Muay Thai, Chinese Kempo and ninjutsu (the girl looks like a ninja but it's really just weapons training). It's just another teenager show with girls with huge breasts and tons of references to them--only this show has a ton of different martial arts in it, making it at least watchable.

    It's pretty funny, if used to Japanese humor.
    In this Manga there even is a gay Brazilian guy who did Jujitsu, and will teach the members of the Karate club some ground fighting skills.
    How can you talk about Minoru and not brign up BNJ!!!! Brazilian Nin-Jitsu!!!
    I loved the Jariaya and Saizo was hilarious.

    Noritaka: King of Trouble is a pretty fun manga about a highschool kid that joins a muay thai club and has to battle people from other styles.


    It starts out pretty cool with Noritaka utilizing a new element of muay thai for each new enemy, which I found pretty neat. After a while I guess they run out of muay thai super moves to defeat enemies so he has to start utilizing more mystical kung fu and karate nonsense, but it's a fun read nonetheless.

    and I have 2 volumes of the Ayane's High Kick manga as well as OAV on VHS. Very good female kickboxing series. Too bad it wasn't continued beyond 2 episodes and 2 manga releases

    Are most of these manga/anime licensed?

    If so, are they in print and go by the same name?

    If not, where can i download? Though im reading noritaka online.

    Ranma 1/2 is gold. I enjoyed it more than alienating mangas like Fist of the Porn Star (gore and Dim Mak mayhem, MadMax meets Wu Xia) and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (awful! stay away), part because of the witty humour and the fact that chicks weren't just ornamental (this is true to all of Rumiko Takahashi's work, her being a chick and all :P). Plus the main character is cursed in a way that he transforms into a girl if in contact with cold water, and reverts into a man when scalded, which leads to amusing encounters in bathhouses and whatnot.

    Vagabond is another great read. It depicts the personal life of Miyamoto Musashi and his rival Kojiro. Great drawings and story, very dynamic panels and sword-play.

    You have Bleach (over the top demonhunter action) and One Piece (martial art pirates!).

    But shining above them, a true hallmark in storytelling and cinematic fighting is Okuri Okami, or "Lone Wolf and Cub" for us gaijin.
    Imagine the former Shogun's executioner, the Kogi-Kaishakunin, betrayed by intrigue and forced to leave Edo with his 3 year old son and live like an assassin, all the time thwarting the plans of his greatest enemy, the Yagyu clan. You'll actually find the Ninjas quite credible, since they rely on stealth, trickery and raw weapon skill instead of folclore (our friend Ashida could learn something with this manga if he weren't so busy running from the real shinobi).
    Any of these works will provide great satisfaction... Just read them all! :)

    The origional full length Steetfigher anime was always a favorite of mine. For the Chun Li vs Vega fight scene if nothing else.
