Final Fu is an American reality television show that debuted on July 17, 2006. It was also on MTV2 at 7:30 pm ET and 11 pm ET on MTV It is hosted by actor Ernie Reyes, Jr. The show features practitioners of various styles of martial arts competing in one-on-one semi-contact point sparring matches and group competitions.

The reality competition is based on stand-up only, continuous point sparring. The target area is the upper leg and torso. No contact to the lower legs, back, groin, and head are allowed. There are also other areas where striking is not allowed, for instance, in one episode, a competitor is warned for striking the opponent on the left side hip.

The point system goes as follows:

  • 1 point for kicks to the target areas;

  • 2 points for "punching techniques" (i.e., punches) to the target areas, as well as jumping kicks and spinning kicks.

  • 3 points for jumping spinning back kicks.


Warnings and point deductions are given for the following reasons:

  • Unnecessary roughness, Lack of control

  • Striking the head, back, or outside the target area


Timidity (excessive lack of action/avoiding the other fighter) has occurred several times, but nobody has been punished for it.
