Get pumped martial arts fans, because Marvel's will definitely be bringing the action to Netflix this spring.

In a new clip from the upcoming, kung-fu filled series, one of the show's other "Heroes for Hire" gets some time to shine, albeit in a MMA-style cage match against two very burly men. The deadly Colleen Wing, played by Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress Jessica Henwick, puts her gravity-defying moves on display as she lands a beautiful "Showtime Kick" in the short sneak peek video. Anthony Pettis would be proud.

For non-comic book fans, Wing is one of Danny Rand's (a.k.a Iron Fist's) partners who helps him clean up the streets of New York City. A descendant of samurai with serious fight skills, Wing is not to be messed with. She's also pals with Misty Knight, a former cop who had a huge role in Netflix's other Defenders series, Luke Cage.

If the new clip is any indication, the fight scenes in Iron Fist should be on point. Like Dr. Strange, there will be a mystical twist on Rand's martial arts powers, but that should only add to excitement and action.

Check out the series' full synopsis below:

Returning to New York City after being missing for years, Daniel Rand fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.

Iron Fist debuts on Netflix March 17.
