Mark Dacascos - Only the Strong (1993) (Full movie)

Yesterday was Mark Dacascos' 50th birthday. Today, I am posting one of his movies in celebration. This is the great capoeira movie Only the Strong (1993).


"Alright everyone. Listen up. If you can't ginga, you can't fight. That's the basic element."
~ Louis Stevens


Ex-Special Forces soldier Louis Stevens returns to Miami to find his former high school overrun by drugs and violence. A master of the Brazilian martial art, capoeira, Stevens pledges to straighten out a dozen of the school's worst students by teaching them this demanding and highly-disciplined fighting style. Slowly, his program begins to work, giving the students new hope and purpose. But the local drug lord, himself a martial arts expert, vows to stop Stevens' positive influence. Now Stevens must fight to save his own life, as well as the lives of his rebellious young students.


Stunt coordinator and fight choreographer for this movie was Frank Dux - the full-contact martial artist whose life was portrayed by Jean-Claude Van Damme in the movie Bloodsport. Moreover, Dux has a cameo appearance as one of the men fighting Louis Stevens in the car workshop.
