Jade Statues unlock melee combos in Sleeping Dogs, which are really important in brawls and street fights as the game progresses. There are 11 Jade Statues that unlock the corresponding 11 melee combos.
Jade Statues are a bit tricky to find and most importantly, most of them are in the areas that are locked when you start the game. So, before you go find the statue, you need to unlock that area by progressing through the game.
Once you have found the Jade Statue, return to your former martial arts teacher, located in the North Point. As a reward for returning this statue to him, you can choose one of the combos available in the Melee Training Menu and learn it by attending the class.
To learn the combo technique completely, you will be required to perform the combo thrice, and then you must defeat a set number of opponents, with or without using that combo. When the lesson ends, you will have access to the new combo technique in your list of techniques.
