Come on, we've to get going

Relax, man. l'm coming

''Singde Gate''

You've come from afar,

you must have seen a lot on your trips.

Khan, everyone's talking about you,

they are all really impressed.

We won't have much time to chat

during the day,

there's a banquet tonight,

you shall accompany me.

Thank you, Khan.

Let's have a display of martial arts

for entertainment


Dulidan, warrior from Labu,

challenges Wen Guer, warrior from Wengubu.

Wen Guer's bone is broken.

Warrior Abulahua from Zhadelanbu,

challenges Huerchi, warrior from Mierqibu.


Our warrior Chilegutai, from Chadaerbu,

would like to

challenge Mongolia's number one warrior.


Go on.

Caidalu, you see,

you've a challenger.


Dulidan would like to challenge

Chilegutai too.



What's your name?


Back off, Dulidan.

Yes, Khan.


have a 2nd round with the one who uses

double blades.

Yes, Khan.


What's your name?




you two, along with Caidalu,

are Mongolia's Best Three Warriors,

you'll be rewarded & you'll stand guard

by my side.

Yes, Khan.

Marco Polo.

l order you to tour around, study

different areas of my Empire

in 3 years time.

l'll give you other important tasks


That was a long report.

lt took me a month to read it.

lt's my work for the last three years.


There are assassins in the palace,

please be careful.

There're over 10 checkpoints even

for me to go through,

how did they come in?

You, go back to Yangzhou,

and come up with another plan.

What? He knows the ''Bell Cover''?

Caidalu, Dulidan, Abulahua,

back off you three.



l heard that when they've mastered

the ''Bell Cover'',

they are unscathed from all weapons,

how could you hurt him?

l guess that

lt could be Caidalu's ''Great Palm''

has already injured him internally,

or that he hasn't really mastered it

for 100%.

Do you know

why l let him go?

l don't know.

He mentioned Yangzhou before he died,

they must be based in Yangzhou.

You plan to uproot them, Khan.

Listen for lmperial order, Marco Polo.

You're now the Royal lnspector,

got to watch what the Hans are doing

in Yangzhou,

do your best to suppress them.

Yes, Khan.

-Eldest brother...


Eldest brother

Brother Jian

Don't cry, dear.

l don't think l can make it.

Kid brother, from now on,

you're the only man in the family,

take care of your sister-in-law.

Can you walk?

l have five sworn brothers,

you've only met Brother Jin,

he died in the mission.

There are four others,

they are all martial arts experts.


Protect my wife, hurry!


Let's go, sister-in-law.


Don't worry, l'll protect you.


Kid brother.

Don't touch her, stop.






Come on.

Where are you transporting the salt to?


Are you robbers?

We are officials from Yangzhou,

and are about to bring this woman there.

Could you give her a lift?


l didn't start it, officer.

He was trying to chop me up.

lt's not that l can't give up the salt,

but this is an one-wheeled cart,

it will top over,

how can l push it?

Selling the salt to Tiandao Mansion

one could earn lot.


Strange woman, she wouldn't eat.

Even though being captured by tartars

she isn't scared

l peed in their soup

just earlier,

my secret recipe.

The woman sat in the cart for a whole day,

she said we should send the salt to

Tiandao Mansion

for selling at a good price.

What do you think, Brother Zhou?

l guess she could be Brother Zu's wife.

Brother Zhou, the five of us are

sworn brothers,

we swore to fight the tartars.

lf she really is Brother Zu's wife.

She indeed is.

Can't be wrong.

Only Brother Zu is married,

he told us that his wife

is the daughter of the Chief of

Tiandao Mansion.

No matter if she is or not,

we must try to save her.


Your husband tried to assassinate

the Khan, not you

as long as you tell us about

his accomplices.

Your husband was a brave man,

and you two were a good match.


Accomplices indeed !


Stop ! lt may be a trick,

they're trying to ''lure the tiger out

of the mountain''.

They want to lure us away here.

We'll go with the flow.

We should turn the trick back

on the woman.


The Khan has ordered you.

Are you Brother Zu's wife?

You are Jianmin's...

We're his sworn brothers.


He mentioned you before he died.


lf they are after us,

why would they leave her here?


They might want to find a lead from her.

That's not much use.

My father is a well-known figure here.

The Yangzhou officials are already

keeping a close eye.

Let's go to my home first.

Brother Zu was...

Killed by the tartars.

Two brothers died on the same day.

''Tiandao Mansion''

What are you doing?

We're yet to master kung fu skills.

Please teach us,

so we can fight the tartars and revenge

for Brother Zu.

Stop joking.

Martial arts practice is prohibited

for civilians

l'm old now,

even l was fond of boxing and kicking

in the past,

but l've forgotten most of it.

lf you're not...

Stand up, please.

But l could use some help around here.

lf you want to stay,

will you let me to assign your work?


Alright, you go to the garden to carry

the fertilizer.

You work on the stone field at the back

of the mansion.

Cut up the bamboo branches in the east.


Master, please take care of me.

Turn the grindstone in the mill.


Stay out of this.

Take some rest now,

you will be led to your work place


Faster...over there...

l'm Chief of Yangzhou, welcome,

Mr. Marco Polo.

So you're the new grindstone donkey?

Call me whatever you please,

l'm lucked out.

You must fry the beans first before

you grind them,



Build a fire first.

We aren't allowed to keep knives,

break up these bamboo branches,

fifty a day.

Did the chief send you, young man?

Yes, you are...

Your supervisor.

Make sure you won't slack.

And check whether you've got strength.

That's the one thing l do have.



Did the chief feed you?

Or you're just too weak?


You should use your strength to

fight the tartars,

not at an old man like me.


Move the stones around.

l love watching stones moving houses. will have 'qi' before

you have strength.

Qi is inner strength, then you've

your outer strength.

Without inner strength,

then you won't be much good,

you might just look more muscular than

the others.

Where's the fertilizer pool?

So it's not fertilizer.


lf you drop in,

l'm too lazy to get up,

no one will pull you out.

Don't worry,

it's not a problem even if it's deeper.

Whoever climbs up is an a**hole.

lt counts still,

a word is a word.

Whoever climbs up is an a**hole.

What are you looking for?

Looking for a shovel

lt's made with iron, and shaped like

a knife,

it's not allowed, you know?

Fine, then what should l use?
