I love how the two “hunks” of Shaw Brothers Kung Fu cinema of the 1970s, frequent co-stars Ti Lung and David Chiang, have now become mellow, kinda dorky, but very nice suburban Dads.

Ti Lung loves being a grandpa and loves teaching his grandkids Martial Arts…

And David Chiang left acting to help his wife recover from cancer (which she did):
