Born in Tianjin, his career began much the same way as his Opera School brothers.

He started work as a stuntman. Working as Bruce Lee’s double in many films, he gained his respect and was initiated into Jeet Kune Do by Bruce himself. His early roles found him as actor, and stuntman. It was in the 1980s that he also began work as a choreographer (for such films as Tales of a Eunuch). It seems that in these times, while prolific and wide spread his most noticeable roles came in productions that featured his Opera Brothers (memorable roles as the giggling general in Eastern Condors and the cigar puffing factory owner in Dragons Forever). These films did show his unorthodox style of kung fu that made for memorable viewing. Through the 1990s his noticeable roles again came under his brothers.

Recently he turned to acting in TV series’, which along with prominent roles in Stephen Chow’s Kung Fu Hustle and the Kung Fu Mahjong series have given his career a revival, both for himself and fans of his work.
