Description: The Qing Dynasty is experiencing turmoil in its later years as foreigners start to take over and ruin the Manchu sovereignty. To restore China's pride and show foreigners the might of Chinese martial arts, the Empress Dowager and Governor Lee Hung Cheung decide to stage a national Lion King Competition. All lion dancers and martial artists from around the nation are invited to attend and participate in the competition and win the title of "Lion King". Wong Fei Hung, his romantic interest "13th Aunt" Siu-qun and his disciple Leung Foon arrive in Peking to visit Wong's father Wong Kei-Ying at the Cantonese Association. At the train station, they meet a Russian diplomat named Tomanovsky, who knew Siu Kwan while they were studying in Britain. He starts to vie for her attention and annoys Wong, who is disgusted by the Western custom of kissing a woman's hand. When the trio arrive at the Association, they discover that Wong Kei Ying had been attacked by a wealthy rival martial artist named Chiu Tin Bak and his lackey Club Foot. Luckily, Wong only suffered minor injuries from the attack. Wong decides to give his blessings to his son and Siu-qun as they develop closer relationships.
