[after Quino henchmen held Anthony captive from his hut and took him to the jungle]
Hey, hey listen. Last night, I was just kidding around. I didn't want to upset you.
Okay. I'm willing to apologize
[attempt to shake hands with Quino]
I don't shake hands with someone who's chicken!
[awkward long pause]
I'm not chicken. Are you?
So let's fight! Don't worry, I'm the man of honour. We fight, just you and me!

This one tries its best to tie a story together. Does it work? Not really and our so called hero spends most of his time as a human punching bag. Also, a reclusive monk who ponders tranquility in a forest(?) is one that I've never seen in any Shaw Bros. film. The training scenes with casio background music are a highlight and yes, livestock will be harmed! A karate tournament is held in a boxing ring and it looked that the public was really getting into the movie. Honestly, it's hard to side with our "hero" and you can't blame Quino for blowing up after taking a foot to the groin. OUCH!! Unintentionally, the logic withing the dialogue seems flawed or maybe something is missing in translation. Otherwise, you're going to laugh at this low blow, B-grade karate romp.
