This paper looks at the various fighting styles in Jackie Chan's "Who Am I". This paper explores in detail martial art styles, dealing with various all-foot attacks, all-punch attacks, and Chan's combination of both. It focuses on the nearly fifteen-minute-long fight sequence near the film's climax on a building rooftop. This paper examines this fight sequence and the styles employed by the three combatants in the fight.

From the Paper:

"Martial Arts fighting styles are as varied and different as we humans who seek to employ them. Even two people who train in the same discipline will bring to it their own unique style and flavor. No where in popular cinema is this more evident then in the fighting styles of Jackie Chan. Chan uses the basic tenants of many martial arts disciplines and brings them together to one constructive fighting style force. The contrast between different styles and especially Chan's own style is illustrated in his film, "Who Am I?""
