It was something about Mantis fist. Now the movie starred aChinese guy who had a trimmed beard. There was a kid (who I think appeared in several other movies) who had awesome flexibility and would often do moves that involved him doing handstands and slapping people with his feet or bending over backwards and grabbing his ankles. The "master" or sifu that teaches him mantis is the same beggar guy from Drunken Master. Actually, I think he did Drunken Mantis in the movie. Can't quite remember. Anyway, all three trained together in the mountains or something and become close until towards the end. I loved this film as a kid.
