I was just reading a part of the translation of HSDS the other day when I came across this part (an part from chapter 1):
What is it that makes the monk's arms feel numb? It couldn't possibly be GX channeling her internal energy through the Heavenly Sword, is it (was that the Heavenly Sword by any chance or was it another sword)? Is there special material or something that makes the sword this way?The tall monk was shocked and angry and yelled out: "Of all the nerves! How dare you come to ShaoLin to wreak havoc!" He turned his body and and advanced one step in front and his right fist aimed at Guo Xiang. His left hand was put on the back of the fist causing two palms striking down. This was the 28th technique of "Dashing ShaoLin" namely "Turning Over Split"
Guo Xiang held on to her sword and pressed down her sword with scabbard and all to the monks' shoulder. The monk held on to the sword.
JueYuan was very frantic and called out: "Stop! Don't fight!"
The monk tried to pull the sword over, suddenly he felt a shock through his palm and both arms felt numb he cried: "No!" Guo Xiang swept her left leg and kicked him down the slope. He was somewhat more injured than the other monk, his face was bleeding.
