Strictly speaking, fight scene choreography does not involve the martial arts. But before you get hot under the collar, consider this: What works for true self-defense does not film well. We know that.
We start with self-defense concepts involving the martial arts, then modify them so they look great on screen. We also take into account the capabilities of the actor. We want the movements to appear natural for that individual.
In addition, the sequence of events within the fight scene have to make sense, just as the scene itself must fit in with the overall storyline of the movie.
