Friday Quiz- Martial Arts in Sci-fi/Fantasy

New more exciting format:  As I am a fan of Jeopardy and already style my quiz after the show with categories and answering in the form of the question, I have decided to give each clue a monetary value.  There will no longer be a quiz winner, but you can keep a running total of how much money/points you have and use it for bragging rights. I will create some buttons for people that reach certain amounts.  I did this to help encourage participation and end the one and done scenerios.  Of course, it depends on your honesty, but why would anyone lie.  on to the quiz. 

All answers must be in the form of a question, answer in the comments, and no cheating. 

This weeks category is Martial Arts in Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Next weeks category is Animated Movies

These are a bit harder so this will be a double jeopardy round:
$400- Neo is astounded that he learns this martial art in the Matrix.
$800- Kurt Wimmer's Gunkata is used in these two scifi films.
$1200- The Fedaykin are trained in the Weirding Way in this novel.
$1600- The Bat'leth is used by this warrior race.
$2000-  In the Wheel of Time series, these warriors can channel are master swordsmen and trained in Aiel Martial arts. 

Good Luck
