The young Asian, in the black pegged pants of a Hong Kong sharpie of 1962, begins by disabling the most belligerent Brit, boatswain Nick Brandon, with a swift kick to the groin.

It is always difficult for a son or daughter to follow in a famous parent's footsteps, especially if the parent is in show business--and happens to be the late, legendary Bruce Lee, the ultimate kung fu star.
