Fate has led CHING to meet Yeung Gor (Andy Lau Tak Wah), son of his old friend Yeung Hong, when he returns to the mainland to look for Yung's father Wong Yeuk Shi. CHING sympathizes with GOR since he is an orphan, and brings him back to the Island.
GOR is not only naughty but also obstinate. He is finally sent by CHING to learn kung fu at the Chung Yeung Monastery. One day, GOR breaks into the forbidden land accidentally when he is hiding from punishment from his master. Granny Suen comes to his rescue and takes him to an old tomb. There, he meets the owner of the tomb, Dragon Girl (Chan Yuk Lin), and she teaches him the supreme Ancient Tomb kung fu and together they practice the Maiden Sutra, which enables them to read each other's mind.

GOR meets Wong Yeuk Shi, the East Infidel, Au Yeung Fung, the West Venom,
and Hung Chat Gung, the North Beggar, one after the other and succeeds to
learn a lot of unrivalled kung fu from them. Later, he tries his best to
look for Dragon Girl and to find out the cause of his father's death…
THE YOUNG AVENGER
Wong Yue, star of many Shaw Brothers kung fu classics, is the titled character in this electrifying film. Follow the mischievous and sometimes dangerous escapades of Fu Yua (Wong), a young funeral parlor worker who is also a martial arts wonder boy. THE YOUNG AVENGER is high-octane kung fu action from the great opening credits sequence to the awesome final fight!
Popular kung fu leading man Carter Wong stars in this action thriller. When a group of Japanese hoodlums take over a small town in North Eastern China by force, it's up to a band of renegade martial artists to stop this gang of ruthless criminals. MAGNIFICENT FIST is magnificent fist fighting action from start to finish!
The great Sammo Hung (CBS' hit TV series MARTIAL LAW) stars in this kung fu classic, as a poor village orphan nicknamed “Filthy Guy” working for the local landlord Chan. When Chan gets harassed by his ruthless rivals, he and his son turn to “Filthy Guy” for help and kung fu lessons.
