First of all, I would like to clarify that I am not an expert player of 
Virtua Fighter series... I just like this game a LOT :) This reference 
material is free for personal use and I hope you'll find it useful.

Please do not hesitate to email to me at DuelMasterNG@yahoo.com should you
have any suggestion.


Cheers :)

P/s. Don't forget to send USD1 to my paypal account, ngcheechong@netscape.net
     ... just joking (but I don't mind if you really do so :p)

Fighting Style : Koen-Ken

After losing against Kage-Maru in the final round of the Third Tournament,
Lau found himself incurably ill. Fearing his individually developed style,
Koen-Ken, may be forever lost upon his death, Lau began looking for a worthy
successor. His main ambition in entering the fourth tournament is to find
that successor and offer them a chance to master his powerful martial arts
style.
