Storyline

Picking up from the events from their previous adventure, the Young Dragons (Ah Kuo, Hsiao and Chubby) are living the good life in modern day Taiwan with their grandparents who are finally back together again. But when Grandma suggests that the boys go to school to better adapt to city life, Grandpa is against it, as he wants the boys to continue their kung fu training so that they can become top martial artists. When the boys are enrolled into a prestigious school for gifted children, they once again find that their old-fashion way of life clashes with the new-age way of Taiwan's residents. The Young Dragons feel like fish out of water and even have to deal with a loud, cantankerous teacher named Miss Wu Zhen Chu who is almost as bad as Grandpa. When the Young Dragons stop a bunch of criminals who attempt to take the school hostage, the boys become national heroes, causing their grandfather to feel left out as it was his training that allowed them to subdue the bad guys. And when ... Written by Keno Reeves

Hilarious kung fu movie for kids!
25 August 2011 | by newtype_1See all my reviews

My parents rented this for me in the 80's, I dubbed a copy and still watch it now and then. This movie is something like an earlier 3 Ninjas, it's about a trio of boys who learn martial arts from their grandparents. Grandma wants them to go to school while Grandpa wants to keep training them, so they have a duel. You've seen the scene in other movies where two combatants fight on top of tall wooden posts- here, they fight on top of dozens of soda cans stacked in the yard. Grandma wins with a dirty trick, so the boys get sent out in the world- hilarity and numerous painful groin shots ensue.

This movie is long out of print, you'll have to find it on VHS if you want to see it. Your boys will probably love it, we all wanted to be ninjas at some point.
