Tommy Cheng Kei-ying grew up in Hong Kong and graduated from New Asia College of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, becoming a secondary school teacher upon graduation. He practiced martial arts at an early age, later creating his own style, and had won in martial arts contests in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia.

Cheng was introduced to film in 1973 by actor Michael Chan Waiman, working as actor, playing mostly villain roles and action director, choreographing many gangster films, including Gang of Four (1978) and Island of Virgins (1978), both directed by Hua Shan, as well as Double Cross (1978), Island of Virgins (1978), and Vice Squad 633 (1979), directed by Chung Kwok-yan. Cheng also wrote the scripts for Gang of Four and Vice Squad 633.

He started directing with the self-financed The Eagle Fist (1981), which he also wrote, produced, starred and choreographed. After finishing his sophomore project Satanic Crystals (1989), Cheng immigrated to Canada, focusing on teaching martial arts.
