The movie begins with the Ming Dynasty general, Qi Jiguang, taking charge of a fishing town in Fujian province. The town is constantly being attacked by Japanese pirates from the sea, who plunder and kidnap the residents. Qi Jiguang, who is a brilliant strategist and martial artist, devises a plan to train a group of soldiers called Zhejiang soldiers who can fight against pirates. The soldiers initially do not take Qi seriously, and his strict training methods cause a lot of resentment among the soldiers. However, after the arrival of Master Law, another great martial artist, the soldiers become excited and eager to learn from their masters.

As the training progresses, the pirates launch a massive assault on the town. The Zhejiang soldiers must defend the town and battle against the invading pirates, who are led by a demonic Japanese pirate named Kumasawa.
