"Young Tenshinhan" (若き天津飯, Wakaki Tenshinhan) is the one hundred twenty-fourth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Jackie Chun asks Tenshinhan why he stays with Tsuru Sennin, in spite of his own remarkable power. Tenshinhan, however, doesn't take kindly to this remark, deciding to use his full strength to defend his teacher's honor. He releases the Taiyōken, and presses his advantage, attacking the elderly master with a knee to the base of his neck.
Jackie Chun falls, stunned, to the ground. Tenshinhan states he didn't kill him, as this would jeopardize his participation in the tournament. Tenshinhan is visibly shocked at Jackie Chun being able to stand again, and Jackie Chun continues his previous statement, imploring Tenshinhan to walk the path of the just. Irritated, Tenshinhan attacks again, but Jackie Chun notes his technique lack the power they had before, implying his words struck a chord with the martial artist.
Jackie Chun's actions in the ring, however, betray him; Tsuru Sennin realizes his identity and relays it to his student. After realizing the secret identity of his opponent, Tenshinhan unleashes a surprise technique: the Kamehameha, having mimicked it from Yamcha. Jackie Chun notes the size of the technique, realizing it would kill some of the audience if he didn't stop it. Deflecting the technique, Jackie Chun notes that the very idea of Tenshinhan's strength in the path of a just warrior makes him shiver. Stunning everyone, he forfeits by leaping out of the tournament ring.
Tenshinhan notes that Jackie Chun still didn't use his full power in the match, while the man himself merrily wonders what kind of era is making its way towards them.
