- The story mainly describes how the kungfu type "Vịnh Xuân Quyền" was created. Vịnh Xuân and Chí Hiếu derived it from Shaolin kungfu. Vịnh Xuân originated from a drama band while
Chí Hiếu was from a wealthy family. She always liked to learn martial arts, but her father did
not support that. On the other hand, Chí Hiếu only studied literature and knew nothing
about kungfu. The same bad general killed both of their family, so they had to escape to
Shaolin and enrolled as students there. Through hard works, they developed this new powerful kungfu together to defeat their enemy.
- This series was made in the early 80s, and I enjoyed the fighting scenes: they seemed
to be "real" since there were not much special effects. Mei Suet was extremely
beutiful and young. The plot was pretty simple, and some parts might be a bit boring.
Maggie Siu only played a minor role, but she looked quite cute; her character was pitiful because
she fell in love to an evil man. This was probably one of her first role in her
early acting career.
