The main actors in the film are not real taekwondo practioners but many of the students in the film are, and their taekwondo skills are portrayed positively; for example, there are cut-scenes that show slow-motion shots of the students performing some very nice taekwondo kicks. The film is populated with a number of inside-jokes about taekwondo. For example, early in the film Simmons admonishes his students to "watch their forms" -- "This isn't a street fight, this is taekwondo!
