Congratulations to Lau Kar Leung for winning the Lifetime achievement Award on April 18th, 2010 in the 29th annual Hong Kong film awards! Sifu Lau is a renowned lineage holder of his art of mastery called “Hung Kuen” family Tiger-Crane style of Kung Fu! Some of us know Lau Kar Leung from his work in the movies from the Shaw Brother studios. His artful direction & a keen eye for fight choreography has truly entertained a subset of GEN X’ers & spawned a sensation of martial artists in the making! His filmography includes Heroes Two, Five Shaolin Masters, 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Mad Monkey Kung Fu, Fist of the White Lotus, Shaolin Mantis, Legendary Weapons of China, 8 Diagram pole fighter, Drunken Master 2, Pedicab Driver, Drunken Monkey, & Shaolin Challenges Ninja. I believe Lau Kar Leung’s last onscreen performance was in Tsui Hark’s “Seven Swords” in 2005. He was also the fight choreographer in the film. These movies are just a few well known appetizers on the menu in Sifu Lau’s movie arsenal! All hail to the master with the mole! We hope you continue to bless us with your on screen & off screen kung fu bliss!

–Mr. C
