Jackie C vs. Jet Li

Recommended Posts

For those of you with this favorite genre in mind, place them in an octagon and who do think will be last standing. For a more amusing scenario, there will be no wrestling or submission allowed.:dhh:

I'd have to go with Jet Li as well. He just always seemed to be more serious with his martial arts. Jackie was a bit more comical.

Both of them have many many styles to consider, but I think I'll work off their main style, the one they keep going back to.

Jet li: wushu, PREFERS NON SPARRING ROLE - limited time activity

Jackie chan: Hapkido - Endurance/technique based style

I've looked up a fair bit, I think what would likely happen is that Jet li would have the initial edge due to youth and unpredictability, but less endurance than the chan man would lead to his ultimate downfall

Victor: Jackie Chan due to endurance based fighting styles. Wont be easy though.

Hmmm... The only 2 Jet Li movies Ive seen are The One and Mummy 3.

Im with Koby's opinion on their fighting styles. Jackie's style uses mental tricks to confuse or daze his opponent, while Jet just goes for the kill...

Guess Ill go for.... Jet?

it really amazes me all the jet li choices, to be honest. I definetly say jackie chan, he's far more interesting and we see more specifics with him, and if worst comes to worst he could always make jet li laugh to death. there was actually a movie that had both of them in it, but it wasn't that great.

I love Jackie Chan, he is one of my heroes, However Jackie learnt martial arts for display in Opera, whereas Jet Li learnt martial arts for fighting.

Jet Li would win for sure, plus Jackie is getting on a bit :P

I think people are forgetting DRUNKEN STYLE! Jackie would win hands down =)

Fighting drunk really doesnt work at all... You just end up falling over and the unpredictability of swaying is easily countered just by doing a bit more telegraphing or just being fast. Jet Li at his finest would wipe the floor with Jackie Chan if Jackie was drunk

The parts they play in movies are always so different. Jackie is always more comical while Jet Li is always more serious. I think it would have to depend on the circumstances and the resources available. Also if they were same age or not. Real life is different than fiction.
