News From The 36th Chamber

Gordon Liu: Kung Fu Icon

36 Chambers Monopile



If you’ve been checking out 36 Chambers for awhile then you know we’ve released quite a few Gordon Liu items and at this point you might be wondering, “yo, who is this guy?”. Well if you’re new to the man, myth and legend that is Gordon Liu or you’re just in need of a refresher, we got you covered. 

Gordon Liu, born in Foshan, China, is a famous martial arts actor and martial artist most notably known for his role as San Te in the critically acclaimed film The 36th Chamber of Shaolin. In 2004, Gordon made a comeback, this time in western cinema with Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino had been a long time fan of Liu’s work and wanted to find a way to put him into the Tarantino universe. Liu ended up appearing twice in the Kill Bill universe as two unrelated characters. You might recognize him as Johnny Mo, the leader of the crazy 88, and kung fu master Pai Mei from Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, respectively.

Quentin was actually the first western director Liu had ever worked with. Liu has been in countless films, over 50 to be exact, and he even made an appearance in RZA’s Man with the Iron Fist as “The Abbot”.

From a young age Liu studied martial arts learning the Hung Fist from the Lau family. Lau Charn took Liu under his wing training him into the martial artist we know today. It was actually because of his god-brother Lau Kar Leung that he made his way to Shaw Brothers studio as Kar Leung was already going hoping to have a career with the studio.

Gordon Liu is a great man and martial artist who serves as a huge inspiration for the 36 Chambers’ company and because of that we’re sure this won’t be the last time you see us paying homage to him. Grab our newest Gordon Liu shirt and poster while you can!

    Pbuh, apdta, the wayz of the gangstaa thugging and they talking about the afterlife, they talking about the order of the cipher, and the order of the
    Mother superiors, the mothers of civilization. Making fun of me like a two year old , how would they know? Said the chick a hoe from Idaho. The boy has to grow into a man, the species must generate, the dna cipher is just a mere spectrum of linguistics and the daily utterance of ebonics as well as firm establishments. It is just and kind, to keep and adhere the real and guard the lost sheep , the death, dumb, and blind, not a physical mere spectrum of alleviation, yet either satisfaction or depletataste-tion. Once going into the forceps of life , I like the doula, and there for the sword to come and cum. They like poking fun of me and being a bum, niggaz, and in this loco en la cabeza, es especialmente? They like to rap battle. She up in there with the legs like its aikido, they up in there with whipped cream, navy bean pie and speedos. Thongs in the hands, they got it like the thong songz, at late night why just listen to Hon.Min.Louis Farrakhan. They all said they don’t know and don’t know the theory, just like that is confiscated, waz diluted, mixed as well tampered. They need to know professionism, and the power and refinement, the Justice is just, and the indwelling the growth and developments, has the consequences as well as the apparent reasons to come and go, is just a quotient of mixed errors of elimination and the co conspirasors that do nothing but thieve and confiscate, if not telling nobody, and if a special something or somebidy, then just have me feel rested assured and trying to believe and receive the sense to become and dial a teacher, for the youth, youthline, 18002464646. There is more to life than just staying put, get prenups signed and such, if for marriage, they said don’ t you ever be in a rush. An e book, to get these project books, and on the barnes and nobles, like taking a walk, like going to trader’s joes, wholefoods, fairway, and then they like fresh direct. It may be the persecution of the righteous, to go and g.i. government , might be g.i. joe but because of honorable discharge cannot be g.i. hoe ma’am, sir.
