Just had this question pop up:
Which is more important in helping someone become a great martial artist in the wuxia sense - Intelligence or having the right physical match for the specific martial arts. Intelligence obviously does a lot in helping one interpret manuals and processing instructions from his or her master, but does one also have to have the right body structure or innate chi structure to practice an art? Is it possible for someone just not be a physical match to practice an art (no DFBB jokes here please
Question spawned up when I recalled another poster on this forum suggesting that one reason Xiao Feng might be so good is because he is Khitan - hence have a better body for martial arts - do you guys buy into that theory? Or do you believe that Xiao Feng is such a bad *** because he was smart and diligent.
