Kwangtung, Fuoshan is China's Nan Tian's style of martial arts land of origin.

Filled with it's fame, it attracts all schools and all styles of martial arts to establish there.

It's also a place for the exchange of martial arts culture

Today, Fuoshan have became THE TOWN of martial arts.

There comes another one to snatch our rice bowl

Okay, let's practice

Come, get ready





Young Master, there is a Master Liao looking for you

This is....

I am the Master of the Liao's Fist

Just opened a dojo in Fuoshan


I heard that your Wing Chun fist is very good

That's why I came here today to get some pointers

Make it another day, okay?

Now is not the right time

Since I am here

and just sparring only, won't take too much time

Let's close the doors and spar. Win or lose, nobody will know

It's not a matter of winning or losing,

I am having my meals right now

Then, I'll wait for you

Master Liao, have you eaten?

Come, join us.

You smoke?

It's okay

How are the dishes tonight?


That is good

Very quick

Uncle Wang, don't clean up the table.

Just close the door first

Master Liao



Are you okay?

I'm okay. I'm okay.

One more time

Then, here I come


Hit! Hit!

All hits!


Thank you for letting me win, Master Liao

Thank you for the lesson. I've learnt a lot

Same here. Same here

Today's closed door sparring.... Master Ip

Don't worry, it'll never leak out

Thank you very much. I am taking my leave

Do be careful

I am not sending you off

Ip Man's "Heavenly King smashing the tower"

One more time and using the "Four Taels to heave a thousand katis"

that thrown Master Liao's to a thunderous grounding

Isn't that stroke used in Tai Chi Quan?

I heard that Mast Ip practice Wing Chun, right?

Whatever! Anyway, he just push him away with just one hand

Master Liao still did not concede defeat

Later, Ip Man ferociously chased after him and beat him up

But Master Liao after being beaten is still not satisfied

and uses "Hungry Dog snatch faeces" to beat Ip Man

This type of tea leaves is very nice. It's cheap

Do be careful

Thank you

Goodbye. See you again the next time

Uncle Ping, who put this here?

It's your younger brother

Initially I thought Master Liao's kung fu is good

but he didn't even have a chance to attack

Being beaten like a pig's head

He also have a share in our father's teahouse

Always loitering and fooling around

Ask that a**hole to take care of the customers

Good morning

Brother Man

Is Brother Quan is here?

He's waiting for you upstairs

Ah Quan, have you been waiting long?

You are always late


Busy with what?

It's always the same.

Eat, drink and kung fu

What's there to be busy about?

This tea is quite fragrant

I am saying you!

Let's order some food

I've something to discuss with you

Eat first, we'll talk later

Fresh from the oven. Come, try it!

I heard them say,

you had a duel with Master Liao

and quickly defeated him

Is that true?

Who told you, Crazy Lin

My younger brother

You should have told me earlier

I've even ask him to be my sifu (master)

You've ask every sifu in town to be your master

Brother Man, did you have a closed door duel?

We've something to discuss. Please go

Then, I will not disturb your discussion

Good morning Master

Good morning Master

Good morning


Good morning

Good morning Master

Good morning

Master, someone said you got beaten by Ip Man

Now, everyone in Fuoshan knows about it

Nonsense, who said it?

Sha Dan Yuan from the teahouse
