Arguably the best film director for traditional style kung-fu action, Liu Chia-liang (a.k.a. Lau Kar-leung) was a pioneer in exploring authentic martial arts technique and training procedures in kung-fu films. So although David Chiang is a kung-fu film veteran, it's no wonder that in The Shaolin Mantis, where he plays a man who learns martial arts from a praying mantis then seeks revenge for his wife's death, the movie features some of his best kung-fu fights to date.

excellent fighting
David Chiang showcased excellent fighting skills with many different types of weapons used...impressive & not bad for AN ACTOR that is NOT a kung fu practictioner. I was stunned by the ending...
