I got to know Xu Changwen at the Changchun Movie Studio about thirty years ago when we both were characters of Japanese warriors in the first Chinese Kungfu movie Wudang Changwen is a real master of Kungfu. Once during a shooting, he was arranged to push a Chinese civilian on the chest. The actor as the civilian was also a big master of Kungfu, but he complained that he felt pain at his chest for almost one month afterward.
Our outer setting was mostly at Mount Wudang. Wudang is a holy place famous for its Neijia Boxing. There Changwen met Aisin Gioro Puhuan (Jin Zitao), the representative of Wudang Taiji Quan, and they became good friends.
