Plot: After learning about a powerful style of kung fu known as Tai Chi and only taught to members of the Chan family, kung fu practitioner Yu-qian sneaks into the training area in disguise to watch the clan master, Chan Ching-ying (Yue Hoi) at work. He inadvertently befriends Chan’s cross-dressing daughter (Amy Fan) and gains her help in continuing to learn the style. When Master Chan is assaulted by servants of a Qing lord (Billy Chow) who is obsessed with besting Tai Chi, Yu-qian comes to his rescue and in doing so, gains recognition as the first outsider to be accepted as a pupil. As pressure increases on Master Chan to fight with the lord, Yu-qian puts his newfound kung fu expertise to use in a multi-level, pagoda-style match arranged by a Qing princess who is attracted to him. After Master Chan is forced into accepting a death match with the lord, Yu-qian steps in to fight in his place.

Featured reviews for

Master of Tai Chi, The
Kung Fu Cinema, by Mark Pollard source:
«Wu Jing, in his first television series after breaking onto the martial arts movie scene in Tai Chi II (1995), magnificently leads a superb cast of highly skilled screen-fighting actors in an exciting production to rival any Chinese movie. And the kung fu? The kung fu is bliss. Elegance, power, clarity, and precision that never ceases to amaze.» source:
«Taking almost half a year in production, this martial arts epic features a stellar cast consisting mostly of wushu practitioners. It is rare to see a TV series with as high calibre and down-to-earth martial arts and attention to detail as this, besides a stirring story. It's a master-piece, an instant classic from Cheung Sing Yim and Yuen Wo Ping.»
