More than just a cute high school girl. She is a master of Karate!

A cute high school girl (17-year-old karate champion Rina Takeda) who learns karate must take on a group of secret fighters with help from her karate master.

Kei (Rina Takeda) joins a karate dojo and quickly proves herself to be the most skilled fighter amongst all her male peers. However, her sensei Matsumura still refuses to give her the coveted black belt until she learns all the kata (forms). Too impatient to wait any longer, Kei hastily joins a fighting group called the Destroyers. The Destroyers don't care about anything but fighting and earning money, and this suits Kei just fine. But when she finds out their true purpose -- to destroy Matsumura -- she decides she must do whatever it takes to put a stop to them. -Hkflix.com
