Now retired from his days as a stuntman he now runs a martial arts school on his ancestral land, Tai O.

Chow who is a keen martial artist seems to have a stronger interest in Snooker instead of martial arts. He spends most of his time either playing Snooker, which doesn’t impress Fei-Hung. When he is actually practicing martial arts he trains with his childhood friend Mo (Teresa Mo). Mo whose martial arts skills are superior to Chow has a bit of a crush for him, but he’s too slow to catch on.
