Michael Shaw (Cody Hackman) is a troubled teenager who is sentenced to community service at a rundown Karate school owned and operated by the mysterious Reggie (Michael Biehn). There, he rediscovers his passion for a discipline he left behind long ago. During a local Mixed Martial Arts fight, Michael encounters Dominic Grey (Krzysztof Soszynski), the man who brutally murdered his parents in a carjacking several years ago. Hurt and enraged, Michael takes it upon himself to find a way to exact revenge. Enlisting the help of Reggie and his friends (Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida), Michael begins to train and learn every skill necessary in order to step into the cage and go toe to toe with the man who took everything from him.
