Need help identifying movie - guy maced to death

I have vague memories of a movie I saw in the late 80s or early 90s but I have no idea what it is. Has hounded me for years!
-set in a high school or college or some kind of academy
-main characters are a group of students who wear a uniform, or maybe letter jackets? Maybe blue or red?
-one of the members, who did not wear a uniform, was an Asian dude.
-the Asian dude was attacked by the bad guys and had mace or something like that sprayed in his face, which somehow killed him.
-one of the members of the group has a girlfriend and the entire plot of the movie seemed to be to protect her from people who were trying to kill her. Nobody in the group except her and her boyfriend survived to the end of the movie, which struck me as odd as a kid. All those casualties just to save the one girl.
-the movie was pretty dumb.

I used to think maybe it was Toy Soldiers but Iíve watched parts of that since and that doesnít seem to be it. Any ideas?

Sounds alot like Sixteen Candles, especially the part about the Asian dude.

Attack of the Clones ...

Jedi Academy - check.

The red/blue that you can’t remember - lightsabers.

Some of the aliens had racist Asian accents.

Jango Fett gets Maced to death.



They are are all trying to protect Padme.

The movie is pretty dumb.

Iíll have to check that one out. Pretty sure it wasnít an Asian film, but who knows, maybe multiple films melded in my mind.
Someone else also suggested Cutting Class. I ffwded through it on YouTube and almost thought that was it. But nope, no death by macing.

In Police Academy 4 Captain Harris Maces himself in the armpits, thinking it’s deodorant.

That looks painful. Do they have head transplants in the Star Wars universe?

I think one of the titular "Nerds" in "Revenge of the Nerds" was Asian, but I can't remember if he's the one Ogre maced to death or not.

Toy Soldiers? I don't remember a mace or an Asian. So it could be Back to School?
