Real-life black-belt Rina Takeda stars as an ordinary high school student turned martial arts master in this throwback action film with a refreshing lack of CGI and special effects and a surprisingly old-school focus on hand-to-hand martial arts action. Years ago, a murderous clan of ninjas murdered Ayaka's family and kidnapped her sister Natsuki; now, Ayaka hides out in Yokohama as a high schooler while Natsuki has turned into a killing machine. Soon, all will meet again and Ayaka must take her martial-arts talents to another level entirely to gain revenge for her family (and get Natsuki back). Praised as "the female Bruce Lee," star Rina Takeda performs every stunt and fight herself while director Yoshikatsu Kimura wisely highlights her abilities through a succession of well-staged action scenes. - Jason Sanders
A mysterious high-school girl, Ayaka (Rina Takeda) has a dark secret. She is a martial arts master and must keep her family's martial arts legacy secret to protect her family treasure, the Black Belt. When she accidentally reveals her awesome fighting skills in public, the ruthless karate gang that murdered her family and abducted her sister finds out. Now a fateful battle is inevitable as the gang and her estranged sister prepares to fight Ayaka for possession of the highly coveted Black Belt!

Great movie and action
pretty good fight scenes, smokin hot main charachter
KG was pretty good one, I thought two girls was just womnderful,way better then adlte acters. Go karate girls! Would be nice to have tv program on U.S.A !
Wonderful. Great karate. Great story. Very well-directed, shot & edited for non-stop tension and suspense, I thought. The young ladies were as cute as could be, and at the same time amazing martial artists. The main villain parts were over-acted, but the rest was so good that I was able to look past it. Well-done. Must see, if you like this genre. -Biggo

Very excellent movie with lots of action good story line well delivered with professional screen actors and actress's. I really enjoyed this one although all movie with both bad and good for one the man that plaid the villain.I have to add was a bit over the top for me to melodramatic like all bad guys he had one of those vileness laughs as usual.
