I came to bring you some tea, father

How many times have I told you?

Never to come in here again

Go back and practise writing


Damn, why do I have to cheat for you

If your Father ever get to know about this

You will be beaten till you are a pauper!

Nobody will know if we keep this secret

Hey, I want to show you something... Let's go!

Nong Jing Soon, hurry up!

Master, you...

Let me apply some medicine for you

- Yes

What happened? Angry?

Mum, why won't Father let me learn martial arts?

This is because he loves you

You were born with asthma

...and you're weak

so you can't take the vigorous training

Isn't learning martial arts able to strengthen the body?

Your desire to learn martial arts

Is it purely to strengthen your body?

No, I want revenge!

I want Zhao Jian to know the prowess of our family

Child, the most powerful aspect of martial arts

is not to defeat others

But to control your own desires

Virtue and morality must not be forgotten

martial arts is to strengthen the body and to aid the needy

Not to go out causing trouble un-necessarily
