Synopsis

  • Legendary Chinese hero Fong Sai Yuk instigates a dispute with a corrupt rival martial school that results in his father's death and his and his mother's exile.

TPB is an early take on the legend of martial artist Fong Sai-Yuk (later to be portrayed by the likes of Jet Li and Alexander Fu-Sheng), here played by Mang Fei. Once Fong Inadvertently kills a student of the rival school run by Iron Hand Tan (Kurata Yasuaki), this action leads to a series of near death confrontations between the men concluding in a tournament battle of the ages.
