The easiest and fastest way to defeat every martial arts challenge (and to win every hand to hand fight in the game) is to use the "leg breaker" B,X,X(hold) and "rib breaker" (B,B on a stunned opponent from behind) combo together. This incapacitates the two most common types of enemies instantly (the basic thug and the brawler) and it can't be interrupted after the first grab (B).

To get the leg breaker, you need to find two statues for the martial arts master (you need to do his training quest first). The two nearest is in Winstons restaurant (Most Main Mission early in the game) and in the Bam Bam club (Main Karaoke Mission), the leg breaker is in the bottom row. You know the rib breaker without any upgrades.

What you need to do:
After a fight starts push the analog stick in the direction of the nearest common enemy and grab him (B), this is the only time you need to wach out for counter. So just push the B then put your thumb on the Y. Wei has a great reach so you don't need to mash B anyway. If you successfully grabbed him then you're safe, no one will attack you till you finish! Then go for the X, X(hold), the opponent falls to his knees. Now you need to push the analog stick in his direction again and mash B,B. While Wei starts to break his ribs you can rotate the camera around to search for another victim. Repeat.

Don't forget, the only time you need to watch out for counters is when you go for the first grab. This combo let's you safely eliminate most opponents usually leaving you with only a few slow thugs. They can be defeated easily with the X,X,X(hold) attack. Just mash the X twice and watch out for attacks (the reason why you don't go just for the strong attacks is because you can't counter properly while doing it and if the opponent didn't attack for two X they will not for a while). There is 4 things that can happen during the first X,X
Red attack: Y
Grab below waist: mash Y
Grab above waist: B
Grab from behind: (X if there is an opponent in front of you), mash Y

This way you don't even need (health) upgrades and most fights is just you breaking peoples legs and ribs while the opponents watching and doing nothing 8)
