No Retreat,No Surrender

Special Guest: Keith W. Strandberg

Step into the ring and fight for your independence on this Independence Day episode where Jean Claude Van Damme plays an evil Soviet fighter – it’s No Retreat, No Surrender! The 1986 low-budget martial arts film stars Kurt McKinney as Jason Stillwell – a young man who continues to learn karate despite his father’s wishes. Jason not only has to navigate the ups and downs of being a teen but he meets up with Bruce Lee who gets him ready to square off against the man of muscle West Coast gangsters used to push his father of out of the dojo business.

We are joined by the writer and producer of No Retreat, No Surrender Keith W. Strandberg.

Guest Co-Host this week is Zachary Oberzan – a JCVD enthusiast and filmmaker who played “The Muscles from Brussels” in his film Your Brother, Remember?
