I don't think it's easy to get in Shaolin.


You have to kneel if you want to learn.

Master, do you remember me

I've been here and met the GreatlMaster.

I had come from Taiwan last time...

Please come in.

They can go in, why can't I?

They're here to see Great Master.

We're too. We want to be his students.

Look at that guy.

Staying in Shaolin temple for 3 years,

we became chefs.

Careful not to fall in and ruin the food

Aren't you hungry?

My stomach is rumbling

However we can't eat this rice.

Is it poisonous?

Why don't they just let us in

This is to test how determined we are.

Please go back.

We came here to learn. What's up

You need to suffer a lot to learn here...

way beyond starving for 3 days.

You can't even tolerate this,

don't even talk about martial arts

Forget about getting into the temple.

You always have good thoughts.

I'm always wiser than you.

Shaolin Ten StyIe Fist set

You've done it for some time, show me.


Master, sorry, I'm late.

Don't come if you're going to be late.

Master, I won't do it again.

Master, I've been here for a long time,

but I haven't learnt anything.

PIease have mercy on me.

Tiger style.

Crane style

The 2 styles have lots of variations

You're not as hard working as he is.

That's enough. Go make fire in kitchen.

I haven't got it yet.

Everyone has different potential.

I ask you to light fire, you do so.

Can I get both styles by making fire?

How do you know you can't?

When did you come here?

Just now.

How long have you waited outside?

I didn't wait.

Fang Shiyu.

Fang Shiyu.

Don't be lazy.

Just making fire, why does it have to be me?

Tiger style

I'd rather be killed than be humiliated

Please go back.

Master, they're Zhen Chengong's people

They're wanted and are not yet monks
