Default Movies with Lung Ying (Dragon Shape Boxing) in them?

Following on from Paimeifist's thread asking about the best films with a focus on monkey fist, I was curious if there were any films that specifically feature Lung Ying (Dragon Shape Boxing) whether as the main style used by the hero/villain etc or just in a fight scene?

Wikipedia says it's used in Dragon Fist but I haven't seen that in some time. It could have just been someone basing that off the title, not to mention it's fairly easy to have inaccurate Wikipedia pages.

Thanks.

Thank you. Will have to check it out. Is there a decent copy available anywhere? Have heard of this before but I'm ashamed to say it's not one I've seen.

I don't know how much of it is traditional but "Dragon's Claws" with Hwang Jang Lee focuses on it...

It depends which Dragon style you are talking about Baak pai/Northern or Lam pai/Southern versions-most southern styles have something called Lung Ying in their syllabus either as a part of a Ng Ying Kuen/Five animals form (Hung Gar's Lung Ying is the breathing method Tit Sin Kuen, although some Hung family lineages have a Dragon Claw variant too-usually because they dont have Ng Ying or Sap Ying/Ten Shapes) or as an individual animal style.

As for Dragon Fist, Lung Ying Mor Kiu and Baak Mei are sister styles, and Chan professes a love for Baak Mei and it definitely influenced the style shown in that movie.

Genuine Dragon si-fu Charlie Chan Yiu Lam's part in Duel of 7 Tigers is the best display of Lung Ying Mor Kiu on film.

Thanks for that, popsjnr. Should have clarified that I meant Lung Ying Mor Kiu.
