Yip Man challenges and brutally defeats the students at a Japanese karate school similarly to how Bruce Lee's character challenges and brutally defeats the students at a Karate school.
Multiple punching can be seen in the first fight scene with Chen Zhen disguised as Masked Warrior, and during the final fights in the dojo
Tang Long delivers multiple punching to an opponent during a fight scene.
Ha Kung's daughter is involved in a fight scene with ten people while rescuing a friend. There are some instances where the scene plays out exactly like the real 1 vs 10 fight scene: including a speech of her wanting to fight ten people; putting down a half-eaten potato on the concrete; stepping forward while being surrounded; the ten challengers bowing before fighting; a challenger receiving chain punches while falling on the concrete; and another challenger getting the head grabbed, twisted and positioning the whole body to the ground simultaneously.
A scene has Emperor Ocean fighting off ten royal guards. Also evident during this scene is the same music used in the real 1 vs 10 fight scene as well as Emperor Ocean putting down a half-eaten apple on the ground the way Yip Man puts down the half-eaten potato on the dojo floor.
Arnold Cheng performs make-up on some volunteers and at one point applies it on a woman in a similar fashion to that of Yip Man delivering chain punches on opponents.
