Peking Opera vs Hung Kuen

Click picture to view video.

This has got to be one of the best martial arts fight scene ever. From the movie The Pedicab Driver, it pits Sammo Hung (Peking Opera) against Lau Kar Leung (Hung Kuen). Sans blood and gore, yet still a thriller, from a bygone era of Hong Kong cinema. The dialog is in Cantonese with English subtitles. [Note: Peking Opera training includes Northern and Southern Chinese martial arts, it's not just 'opera'.]
