“Mystery Of Chessboxing” is an instrumental piece of Wu-Tang lore. The old school Kung Fu movie follows Ah Pao on his journey to learn Kung Fu so he can avenge his father’s death. The film is directed by Taiwanese film director Joseph Kuo, who also helmed “7 Grandmasters,” “36 Deadly Styles,” and “18 Bronzemen.”
Wu-Tang Clan fans will immediately recognize that the track “Da Mystery of Chessboxin’” pays homage to the movie. Ghostface Killah also derived his name from the antagonist of the film.
