Wuxia skills?
« on: April 28, 2018, 11:41:51 AM »
HI,

or people who are not familiar with wuxia they are Chines sword play novels. The film Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon being the most famous adaptation of a wuxia novel. The heroes have high and fanciful ability like lightness skills and the ability to paralyse enemies temporarily by sealing their acupressure points. They can use Qi to stave of poison and use it to power strikes. Their throwing weapons are deadly and perception outstanding. My general musings are to what extent are the rang of skills they poses and the underworld of secret societies and martial sects based on historical fact and to what extent are they fiction? Clearly both lightness skill and nerve strikes are real but modern martial artists do not seem as legendary in their skills as their fictional forbears. How much was just made up and how much has just been lost? Also the rang of skills they poses seems bigger than what most of us practise. Are their any people out their still practising a wider rang of skills?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
