The film that's likely to be remembered is Enter the Dragon. It's still regarded as a classic thanks to the impact that Bruce Lee brought and created in front of the cameras. Ataaaaah!!

Favourite Jackie Chan films are Project A, Police Story, Wheels on Meals, Dragons Forever, Armour of God and Drunken Master II.
Shaolin Soccer is another good movie to see for its comedy thanks to Stephen Chow.

I vaguely remember some Ninja films with Sho Kosugi in the mid/late 80's.
I also used to love the American Ninja films, however, watching one recently, they have dated very badly!
