Started as a stuntman in his early films and was known as a fearless performer, as well as being an expert in Hung Gar Fist style.

Literally born into the world of martial arts and movies, Liu Chia-liang's father studied under Lam Sai-wing, a student of the famous Wong Fei-hung. Liu himself was mentor to the late Alexander Fu Sheng, Adam Cheng, Hsiao Hou, among others. Liu began practicing martial arts at seven, and joined the film industry as a martial arts stuntsman while a teenager, to become action director on martial arts movies of the 50s and 60s. During the 1970's Liu was one of Hong Kong's most dominant, innovative and influential martial arts directors. IN the early 1960s, Liu and action director Tang Chia joined Shaw Brothers, providing fight choreography for most of Chang Cheh's ground-breaking movies including One-Armed Swordsman.
In the early 1970's Liu and Chang began to cooperate on film projects based on Shaolin Temple's legendary heroes. Chang directed Men From the Monastery and Five Shaolin Masters, while Liu was the action choreographer in borh films. Liu took the director's chair alone in 1975 with The Spiritual Boxer. He continued to demonstrate his individual style by using comedy, strong heroines and alternatives to violent and gory deaths that hitherto ended most films. One of Liu's final films for Shaw Brothers was The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter, inspired by the tragic death of its star Alexander Fu Sheng during the production. Liu also worked with Jet Li on Martial Arts of Shaolin.
In 1994, Liu worked with Jackie Chan on Chan's Drunken Master II. The film was a tremendous success and reintroduced Liu to the world. Having been out of the spotlight, Liu made a comeback as director for the first Shaw Brothers production in many years, Drunken Monkey to be released in 2003.
