        Jumping forward into the air, Lau sends out a mid-kick.

Ground sweep Thigh             f, d+K                  L, Down
        The timing to input the move has changed from VF2.  The
        reach, thank goodness, has also been reduced.

Lunging Palm                   d/f, d/f+P              M, C.Down

The Palm Catching
  the Flying Swallow           b, b+P                  M
        As he is turning around, Lau launches his attack hand high.
        If hits, air combo potential.

Flying Swallow & Whirlwind 
  Kick                         b, b+P, K+G             MH
        After the hientenshinshou, a high roundhouse.

Warbird Whirlwind Leg          b, b+K+G                H, AI, End
        Turning his back, Lau attacks with a spin kick.  
        Possibility of an air combo.

Moving Whirlwind Fang          K, K                    HH
        A high kick then a roundhouse

Son of Yangqing Fist           b, f, f+P               M, Down
        A two-handed thrust.  Looks like Akira's Double Palm.

Multi-Sweeps                   d+K, K, K, K
Tigerlance Palm                b, f+P                  M, Down
        With one hand behind his back, Lau thrusts his other hand
        straight forward.  If the move hits, Shun gets up drunk.

Action Lau with Kung-Fu Grip   f, f+P

Violent Slashing Tiger Strike  d/f+P+K                 M

    Dragon                     b,b/d,d,d/f,f+K+G       M
        A rounghouse type kick.  If the opponent guards, he can

Rising Back Heel Kick          D_, K                   M
        Starting from a crouch, release the joystick to neutral
        and press kick.

Skyward Fist                   u+P                     M, Down
        Lau jumps up and chops down his hand.  Unlike VF2, you
        can not use this to initiate a air combo.

Tiger Leg Backflip             u/b+K                   M, Down, AI
        A flipkick.

        Low kick.  Usually the beginning of Lau's new combo.  There's
        really no advantage to using this move alone.  Recovers low.

Traversing Kick - Reverse
   Spin Leg                    d+K, K                 LH

        move back to neutral.

Spinning Back Palm              P, b+P                   HM
        A high punch, then a turn-around hit.  At the end of the
        sequence, Lau has his back to his opponent.  A good follow-up
        after the Up Slant Palm (D_, d/f+P) or the Lunging Palm
        (d/f, d/f+P)

   Wave Motion Fist            P, b+P, f+P (?)           HMM

        Not very bloody useful.

Greatly in debt to YAMAZAKI Shinji ( and
Gamest Act 0.5, which I still don't have in completion.  

As you noticed, I didn't clean this up much.  Since I'm going to
revamp all the move lists anyhow, I'll just crank out a rough copy.
By the end of this week, you can see the finished copy at
