Awesomeness: secret Shaolin Kung Fu training
San Te is a student and rebel conspirator, working against the Manchu government. Manchu officials kill a number of San Te’s classmates and family members; on the run, he flees to the Shaolin Temple. After a year wait, San Te is admitted into Kung Fu training, where he graduates through each of the 35 “chambers” of Kung Fu training: each is a challenge that strengthens his body and hones his fighting skills. He returns to his community to seek revenge against the local Manchu government and to train his people to defend themselves with Kung Fu. This Shaw Brothers classic is often considered one of the greatest Kung Fu films of all time.
