    Default Who is the most famous practioner of THE 18 DRAGON SUBDUING PALMS?

    The 18 Dragon Subduing Palms is one of the most recognized names of martial arts in wuxia -- thanks to whom the most (I mean, which character)? When people hear the name "18 Dragon Palms," which practioner of this skill do you think shows up in people's mind the most?

    I'd say GJ also. Even my mother knows GJ. Hell she knew about GJ way before I did. I think it was way back in her childhood when roadside-storytelling was still popular.

    By that token I think even my grandmother knows GJ...

    Xiao Feng might be a more popular character, but 18 Dragon Subduing Palm = Guo Jing.

    i think xiao feng relied more on brute strength which he has plenty

    but GJ refined it further to eliminate the extra strokes and maybe incorporate 9 Yang in it to make it even more powerful?

    I would think of Xiao Feng.. He constanty used his XL18Z palms most of the time. He just bang ppl away with his XL18Z.

    GJ although very famous for using XL18Z, sometimes rely on 9Yin.

    Maybe Yelu Qi? He learned fully the XL18Z from GJ.

    Ha. Sorry, but I simply cannot imagine that anyone would seriously believe Yelu Qi is the most recognized practioner of XL18Z to most people in the world.

    Anyway, would the 2 voters of "ANOTHER PRACTIONER" please announce your pick?

    i dunno, I think of XF, not GJ. I mean GJ's got lots of other skills right, whereas XF's all about the dragon palms and didnt JY say XF's dragon palms were best?

    xiao feng brute force probably is the primary and most important component of XL18Z

    I'd say GJ. XF's strongest is XL28Z, but they doesn't use it every battle. GJ on the other hand uses XL18Z just about every battle we see him fight (of course this is from when he learned XL18Z). Reading DSGS, XF didn't use XL28Z in the beggining that much.

    I can vouch that I'm the least famous practitioner of Hong Lung 18 Palms.

    That's because you got to have testosterone to learn.
