Bloodsport II: The Next Kumite is a 1996 action film directed by Alan Mehrez. It is the sequel to the 1988 film Bloodsport. This sequel had a limited release before going direct-to-video in 1996 and stars Daniel Bernhardt, who reprised the role in a sequel.
After thief Alex Cardo (Daniel Bernhardt) gets caught and betrayed by his partner in crime John (Philip Tan) while stealing an ancient Jian in Thailand, he soon finds himself imprisoned and beaten. One of the guards, Demon (Ong Soo Han), is particularly upset by Alex's appearance and tortures him whenever he gets the opportunity. Alex finds one friend and mentor in the jailhouse, Master Sun (James Hong), who teaches him a superior fighting style called "Iron Hand". When a "best of the best kumite" is to take place, Demon gets an invitation. Now Master Sun and Alex need to find a way to let Alex take part in the kumite, too.
