Summary
  First of a trilogy chronicling the adventures of Liang Kun. This time he gets involved in a feud between the leader of the White Lotus Cult and former classmate Ching Chen. Plot is somewhat hard to follow, but is cleared up a bit in the sequel, _Sam the Iron Bridge (Champion of Martial Arts)_. A corrupt leader of the White Lotus Cult plots to seize the"sacred scrolls" in an attempt to secure his martial arts power. This fanatical cult promises immortality to those who rise against the Europeans in China - resulting in the Boxer Rebellion. [ Tai Seng Catalog] Something like a jumbled, back-to-front version of Tai Chi Master and Fong Sai Yuk. Shifting focus on at least ten major characters makes whatever story there is hard to follow. But there's brother against brother, conflicts of loyalty, even disappointment in love. San (always good guy) is disappointed in his brother Kuang's (weak character) decision to join the Cult, and how the power has corrupted him. Chin Chen (good guy) resists his brother Chan's efforts to obtain the Classics. Chan tortures Chin by mistaking him for a pin cushion then, with the help of his cranky but skilled old flame Hung and his daughter Tien, Chin trains San in the Classics, to fight Chan.
