Typical Kung Fu flicks made in 1970's Hong Kong
Obviously, this is one of the typical Kung Fu movies made in the 1970's Hong Kong.

This movie is made purely for the commercial purposes, and it is only an entertainment.

The actors are obviously not professional martial arts masters, and the fights are carefully choreographed.

One thing that did reflect some realistic martial arts moves was that the fights are mostly based on southern Shao Lin style, which uses arms far more than legs.

Some actors did appear to have some type of training.
