This film depicts a story about a guy, Yang Chi who wishes to fulfill his mother's wishes of learning Tai Chi to maximise his potential in Martial Art. But he has heard advices and stories about Master Chen, Tai Chi Master of Chen'S Village does not teach Tai Chi to anyone who is not from the vaillage despite of this, He painstakinly took the journey across to the Village of Chen to hopefully one day get to be his disciple despite of all odds coming against him.
Yang faced many challenges coming from residents of Chen's Village who all possessed the Tai Chi Martial Art during his attempt in entering the village. Fortunately, He Met an Old Uncle whom he has befriended after he has saved him from the duel with Yuniang. Master Chen realizes Yang’s genius and disguises himself to secretly guide Yang to his self realization of TAICHI. Little does he know that the uncle that he has just befriended is actually Master Chen himself.

Later on, bad things seems to be coming when Fang Zijing who is western oriented who has failed attempt in persuading his villagers to use electric power from the power generated from the rail when the power generator experienced a short circuit and the bulbs exploded with flames. Fang Zijing then brought a monster machine that looks like a ecentrical tank called Troy to destroy Chen's Village. But Yang Chi and Yuniang and Master Chen have had long prepared the tactical strategy to counter Fang's evil plot. Good things always come at the end, and so does the Chen's Village. Troy, the monster machine was very well destroyed by Yuniang, Yang Chi and a very ingenious and funny innnocent little girl.  But Yang Chi almost faced the sentence to be paralysed by Chen's Village Head Master as he has stolen the Tai Chi Martial Art skill as he is not from Chen's Village. Yuniang wanted to save Yang Chi so she asked for a marriage proposal with Yang Chi and that helps Yang Chi to keep his tai chi skills and also prevented him from being made paralysed by them.
