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 - 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 - who felt he had nothing to live for - 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.
Back in Tianjin, an American strongman named O'BRIEN is making headlines by defeating China's fighters and dismissing them as 'Sick men of the East'. Huo challenges the hulking wrestler, and beats him easily with his graceful Missing Fist. This startles members of the Foreign Chambers of Commerce, who worry that Huo's victory would fan the flames of anti-Western sentiment in the Chinese people. They hatch a plan to humiliate Huo by pitching him against four fighters representing the four major foreign powers in China. Huo's childhood friend, Nong, suspects a trap, but Huo sees this as a good opportunity to demonstrate the spirit of sportsmanship.
The battle of the century begins! A British boxer, a Spanish swordsman, a Belgian soldier - three formidable fighters step into the ring, and one after another, Huo defeats them all. But the Chamber of Commerce has been saving the best until last. The Japanese challenger, ANNO TANAKA is by far the most skilled competitor. As the two men stand face to face in the arena, the thousand-strong audience waits with baited breath.
What happened that day in September, 1910, is something that nobody would ever forget.
