    Mantis Fist movies.

    Actually that's southern mantis fist not the same thing as northern mantis. My mistake though. Should have made the distinction. Falcon uses monkey fist against Cynhia Rothrock (who uses eagle claw against him). Monkey's leg works is identical to mantis fist however. As for 7 Grand Masters I check it out. Thanks,.

    Chinese Pigtail, confusing thing

    True enough, the wearing of the queue was a taboo depictions for a long time in movies. Still I think lots of time, the wearing of a wig queueit was simply view as too much of a bother for small budgeted productions. Only big studio like Shaw Brother et Golden Harvest could really afford to "wig-up" all their actors and extras. Hence a queue wearing Wong Fei Hong in The OUATIC series as well as in CHALLENGE IN THE MASTER and MARTIAL CLUB. You also have to remember that kung-fu movies have no compunctions to plays fast and loose with history; hence a young no queue wearing Wong Fei Hung in the Republican setting of DRUNKEN MASTER II.
