    The twirling with open hands also annoys me, but being TV they certainly have much less time to work with the actors than in the movies and the ones unfamiliar with the actual thing wouldn't know better anyway.

    But did he use FMA in ALL of those? I don't remember it from Highlander 2 or The Green Mile.

    But he used FMA concepts....:-)

    how about "Kindergarten Cop"? I think you will have to just use that list with your own best judgement, but Imada is an FMA guy, and FMA is just about EVERY MA there is, Asian and European, so if there was sword work in Highlander II then it was FMA, IMO.

    Just about every culture in Asia had people go to the islands, From Chinese to Islam, and then the European Conquistadors came. The FMA is vast heritage of weapons fighting. A competent FMA practitioner should be able to create just about any type of sword/knife work from any World culture for a film. "Gladiator" with Russel Crow is a good example.

    Jeff Imada is an FMA guy, and he has done many movie stunts involving fighting, though most do not look like Filipino stick work.

    I think maybe the OP really wants only the FMA "looking" stuff though, whatever that is.....

    Ok, now I understand what you meant, and I agree. But in Conan: The Barbarian or the original Star Wars we can clearly see the Japanese Kendo/Kenjutsu influence. Conan even has a kata performed with a katana-like sword early on the movie (before the Atlantean sword is found).

    Just as easily we can recognize the Filipino "distinctiveness" in The Hunted or in the Exposure clip posted, or the wushu in Ray Park's Darth Maul - I don't need to know Park's background to notice it.

    Also, Sherlock Holmes and Taken are movies that scream FMA to me. Highlander 2, not at all.

    But no, the OP (me) doesn't wants only the FMA "looking" stuff, but movies that have an emphasys on FMA or that have been thought and planned with FMA on mind. Maybe we should focus on the movies Imada played a bigger role - being listed as justs "stunts" could mean he was one of the ninjas being shot by someone, not the creative force behing the fighting in the movie like he is in the Bourne series.

    It does looks like Escrima but it's actually Ed Parker's Kenpo. The actor himself is a practitioner. Or did Kenpo itself borrowed from FMA?

    Yes, I know, but it was the only short clip I could find where he works the sticks, all the rest are long parts of the movie, broken up on YouTube

    How about Redbelt? Yeah, it's a BJJ movie, but the principal MA consultant on the film was Dan Inosanto. Also- been a while since I saw it, but some of the bar fight scenes were very FMA influenced IIRC.
