Louis Fan Siu-Wong is a Hong Kong martial artist most recognizable as the northerner Jin Shanzhao in the film “Ip Man”, a master of the style of Kung Fu called Shaobeiquan. His performance won him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards. Besides portraying that same character again in “Ip Man 2”, he also played Ip Tin-chi in “The Legend is Born: Ip Man”. But many also attribute him to his starring role in the campy martial arts cult film “Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky”, a live-action movie adaptation of the manga of the same name, which came out over a decade before the first Ip Man film. Trained in Wushu and gymnastics, he is a talented martial artist and actor. Here’s a compilation of my favorite Louis Fan fight scenes.
