            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.

            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.

    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.

    Sidekick, Knife Hand Combo     d/f+K, P, P
    Violent Slashing Tiger Strike  d/f+P+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.

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

            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)

    Greatly in debt to YAMAZAKI Shinji (yamazar@ics.nitech.ac.jp) 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
