A lot of old school female kung fu stars did most of their action scenes, but I can’t say that they weren’t doubled during some of the more difficult stunt scenes, just like the men were.
Look towards Angela Mao as someone who really shined during her action scenes. I definitely recommend both “Hapkido” and “Broken Oath.” They’re both fantastic. You won’t see any major acrobatic scenes or death defying leaps but if you want to see a woman kick the fuck out of a bunch of blokes then you’re in for a treat.
Michelle Yeoh always chose to do her own stunts. I’m not sure if she did in “Magnificent Warriors” but it’s worth checking out. She did do all her own stunts in “Police Story 3” though…including a motorcycle jump onto a moving train.
Moon Lee and Yukari Oshima…and Kara Hui, actually…are amazing martial arts talents, but many of their big stunts are done by obvious doubles so I can’t really recommend many of theirs. Although, if you just want to see real woman pulling off amazing fight scenes, do seek out their films.
Jeeja Yanin is another one. She did all her own stunts in “Chocolate” and, if you watch the end credits, you’ll see just how badly she fucked herself up.
