    Law owns a Chinese restaurant. The food apparently isn't very good, but he'll beat the crap out of you if you complain (shown in Tekken 4).

    Endings (spoilers)


    Marshall Law begins to teach some struggling students his somersault kicks, leaving them in awe.

    Having begun reviving the Marshall China restaurants, Law revels in his triumph. At one location, some punks complain how his food sucks. Offended, Law decides to teach the punks a lesson to assure his food tastes good. But chaos erupts when one of the punks hits Marshall with a bottle making him retaliate.
