The Martial Arts Kid is a coming of age story about a Cleveland teen, Robbie Oakes (Jansen Panettiere), who gets arrested in Ohio, and must move to Cocoa Beach, Florida to live with his Aunt Cindy (Cynthia Rothrock) and Uncle Glen (Don “The Dragon” Wilson). After arriving, Robbie meets a beautiful girl, Rina (Kathryn Newton), whose boyfriend, Bo (Matthew Ziff), is a bully who makes Robbie’s life as miserable as he possible can. Robbie finds himself learning not only martial arts from his Aunt and Uncle, but he learns about family, friendship, honor and discipline and making choices that will benefit him for the rest of his life.
