    Default The tightest fights: wuxia fights in small spaces.

    Most wuxia battles occur in places where there's plenty of elbow room - on an open field or in a room large enough wherein movement is not greatly restricted. Sometimes, wuxia fighters who meet in a small space might even move out of the space to gain more elbow room for fighting (e.g. fights that start in restaurants might spill out into the street).

    What are some memorable wuxia fights, however, that are notable for their lack of elbow room for the combatants...where in addition to fighting the enemy, the fighter also had to fight the walls of a confined space.

    Here are a few that come to mind:

    1. Gwok Jing's struggle against Leung Tze Yung's big snake inside the well at Leung Tze Yung's manor during LOCH.

    2. Sing Kwun and Tse Tsun's climatic final battle during HSDS in the small pit underneath Shaolin.

    Any others?

    XF vs Grandmother Tan and Zhao Qiansun on a small boat.

    Can fighting in a big spot but small circle be consider as your question too? Cause there's that one seat battle fight scene in Smiling Proud Wonder where Ling huo sung fight with Tian Boguang where they can't get off the chair or they lose.

    here from this chapter 4 english translation....Seat-Fighting

    now that you mentioned that, how about the fight between LHC and TBG in the cave when LHC tried to save YiLin?

    LHC's fight against RWX inside the dungeon cell was pretty cramped.

    A restaurant, by definition (unless it's one of those Japanese ramen stalls), can't be among the tightest spaces for a wuxia fight considering that some of the other candidates have fought inside wells, dungeon cells, and the like.
