Illustration for article titled Meet The Real, Ass-Kicking Chun Li

There's been a gif doing the rounds this week of a French cosplayer performing an impressive rendition of Chun Li's lightning kick. It's based on this 2011 clip, and it's pretty good!


I'm not sure who the cosplayer/performer in question is, but seeing it reminded me of a similar clip in which we do know the star: Chloe Bruce's 2010 masterclass in Capcom-flavoured martial arts, which never fails to blow your socks off, and which I see has never actually been posted here. Time to fix that.

Please watch twice, the second time so you can catch Capcom's Yoshinori Ono in a matching outfit.


Chloe is a British martial artist who has appeared on TV and in Hollywood movies like the upcoming Thor sequel, Brad Pitt's World War Z and Wrath of the Titans.

She's also done video game work. Played Mirror's Edge? She did martial arts motion capture for the game.

G/O Media may get a commission

The video above is her most famous Chun Li performance, but it's not the only time she's appeared as the character; she cosplayed last year for a photo shoot with British martial arts crew Thr3guys.

You can check out more videos of Chloe's work on her site.
