Little seems to be known about this series and copies of it are unavailable at this time. What is known about it is that the storyline revolved around the elderly Dr Leung Jan (the first Grandmaster of Wing Chun) and his life in Foshan, China. The show is in Cantonese and follows the life of Liang Bing the eager but implusive son of Liang Zhan, the local doctor and martial art master. The father and son clash head frequently as Liang Bing desires to learn martial arts but his father wants him to study medicine like his brother. On the other end, there is Gao Ming a poor disciple of a drunken master who has traveled all the way to Fo Shan to find his long lost sister. Liang Bing and Gao Ming become rivals when Liang Bing wrongfully but not intentionally harms the sister and Gao Ming ends up working for a corrupt family, the Longs.

The characters grow as the innocent Gao Ming gets corrupted by pragmatic evil and is put through trial and tribulation that eventually numbs him and Liang Bing learns responsibility when he runs to Hong Kong after being accused of murder. Complex characters set against love triangles and the adventures of other supporting characters brings this classic show to live.

Sadly, cast details and other information has proven difficult to find.
