kung fu is more than

a system of fighting.

It's a system of thought.

you must outthink your opponent,

whatever form he takes...

because some of them

will be more than just men.

what else could it be, sifu?

we all have inner demons

to fight.

we call these demons fear

and hatred and anger.

If you don't conquer them,

then a life of a hundred years...

is a tragedy.

If you do,

a life of a single day...

can be a triumph.

don't worry about it.

don't worry.

excuse me, my son.

uh, six pints

of beer, mate.

- no.

- aw, come on.

oh, god, what about

that one there?

hello. mind if I take over?

go on, piss off!.

big boy!.

hey, look,

I'm fred astaire!.

she's a bit frisky, isn't she?

oh, yeah. come on, one, two.

oh, I love it when they fight back.

one, two, come on!

stay back. stay back.

back in-- hey, hey! back in line.

- what do you want?

- I want to dance with her.

this one's mine.

get one of your own.

she is one of my own.

hold it, lads.

leave him to me.

come on, try that again.

I'm gonna get you,

you little yellow bastard.

smash your face in.

hey, bob!

the police were here.

they're looking for you.

- I know.

with a punctured lung.

he started it.

he's the nephew of the assistant

police lnspector of kowloon.

I can hide out

with my friends.

you don't have

any friends now!

the cops will be back.

I should

get out of here.

sit down.

I've thought a lot

about this...

for a very long time.

- you'll have to leave hong kong.

- for how long?


this is a joke, right?

you're joking.

listen to me, sai-fong, you'll die

in hong kong. I've seen it.

you're too superstitious,


you're a man now.


you have a right to know everything.

you had an older brother.

he died in childbirth.

the demon took him

away from us.

the firstborn man-child

is very valuable.

so when you were born,

I name you sai-fong, a girl's name.

we dress you in dresses so the demon

wouldn't know I had another son.

I made you speak english,

all so we could fool him.

but now he knows.

and he's coming for you.

you must leave tonight.

where, papa?

where can I go?

you love american cars.

- you go to america.

that morning I got you

and three good reviews.

I was very proud.

to go to america.

It's yours.

I saved it for you...

for a day like today.

I don't know

what to say.

a big noise in america...

so I can hear it

over here.

to set the dynamite.

and round-eyed gwailo
