Fong Sai-yuk

Fong Sai-yuk (zh-cp |c=方世玉 |p=Fāng Shìyù; Yale Cantonese: Fong Sai Yuk) was trained in the martial arts by his mother Miu Tsui-fa, daughter of Miu Hin, who according to the legend was one of the Five Elders, who escaped the destruction of the Shaolin Monastery by the Qing Dynasty.Fact|date=February 2007

Early life

According to legends, starting immediately after his birth, Miu Tsui-fa would intentionally break every bone and limb in Sai-yuk's body and then bathe him in the Chinese herbal liniment "Dit Da Jow", making him practically invulnerable. This treatment gave Sai-yuk's body the quality known as "copper skin, metal bone". (cf. Achilles).

While he was still in his early teens, he accepted an open challenge from Tiger Lui and killed him.Fact|date=February 2007

Death

According to legend, Fong Sai-yuk was killed by Bak Mei (white eyebrow), the notorious kung fu warrior in a battle embedded with revenge. On the other hand, according to the history, Fong Sai-yuk was killed during the fight with Wu-Mei (五枚), which was at the event of "Shaolin fire", when the temple was burning down.
