This is the story of HUO YUANJIA !V A fighter, who represents Chinese martial arts to a nation; A man, who fought his way out of darkness and into history.For as long as he could remember, HUO wanted to learn martial arts. His FATHER was a great fighter, but he did not want his son to follow in his footsteps and refused to teach the boy. This only made Huo even more determined to learn. With the help of his friend, NONG, Huo stole his father!|s Wushu manual and sets out to teach himself how to fight.
Soon, Huo is able to beat up a schoolyard bully with his new skills. Thrilled by the taste of this small victory, Huo throws himself into training and as the years pass, fight followed fight and victory followed victory until he became known as a skilled and powerful fighter. But as his fame grew, so did his pride. Huo had become an arrogant hothead who was always spoiling for a fight.
When one of Huo!|s young apprentices is injured by a master named CHIN, Huo is full of vengeful spite and indignation. He forces Chin to fight him, and kills him with no remorse. Only when he returns home does Huo discover that his victory has cost him the lives of the two people he loves most !V his mother and his daughter were killed in brutal revenge.
Crazed with grief and shame, Huo flees Tianjin. He wanders for thousands of miles, no longer caring whether he lives or dies. But just as he is ready to give up all hope, he is saved by GRANDMA SUN and her blind granddaughter, MOON, who bring him back to the idyllic village where they live. Guided by their simple kindness and generosity, Huo !V who felt he had nothing to live for !V slowly began to forget his pain and his desire to fight.
One day, a child from the village runs into trouble with a neighboring Siamese tribe. In order to save the boy, Huo reluctantly parries blows from a powerful Thai boxer named BEI CHA. The encounter reawakened Huo!|s love of martial arts and he began to experiment with a lighter, less aggressive style that would eventually become the legendary Mizong (Missing) Fist. Huo realized that the future of martial arts lay in the spirit of sportsmanship and not brutality. At last, he has found his place in the world, and he knew that he had to return to Tianjin so that he could do the same for Chinese martial arts.
