    Default How long were GJ and AYH able to last against AYF and H7G?

    The first part of the three-part contest on Peach Blossom Island for Wong Yung's hand in marriage was a straightforward martial arts contest. What was not so straightforward about the fight, however, was that Gwok Jing had to fight against West Poison Au Yeung Fung while Au Yeung Hak had to fight against North Beggar Hung 7 Gung. How many moves were each of the two younger men able to last against the two respective Greats?

    well, that was when the Greats could use no internal, only techniques. That's why it took much longer. At that time, GJ was stronger than OYK overall. Well, OYK said that he has not reached 30% of his uncle.... That means OYK if fought fair and square should have lasted less than about 40 stances because GJ took it to about 50. If internal was allowed, I doubted either of them were able to even last 15 stances.

    OYK didn't even bother to fight and was running away from H7G.

    GJ fought OYF head-on and was actually holding out (his martial arts had already greatly improved and his comprehension as well).


    Despite that, GJ and OYK were both knocked off (well, OYK fell backwards on his own) the trees at the same time. You can make your conclusions from that.


    Incidentally, now that this section of the novel has been translated, I'm more convinced than ever that GJ is an extreme martial arts prodigy.

    I think so too. He has good instincts - able to draw upon his basic skills and apply them, e.g. using his Mongolian wrestling skills to win the first bout of the contest.

    Also, he has the philosophies of 9Yin to draw upon; but the major thing is that he can take personal experiences and observations of the Greats dueling and map them to the 9Yin teachings and learn from it.

    e.g.
    When HYS and OYF dueled inner power via the Jade Flute and Iron Zither respectively he could see beyond the musicality and visualise it as a battle; he could then see the positives and negatives of each combatant, compare it to 9Yin philosophy, etc.

    Which of course OYK and HR didn't understand at all.

    At Lu Manor HYS could 1 shot K.O MCF then each of HYS OYF and ZBT could easily beat Lingzhi Shengren (one of Wangyan Houli hechmen) in 1 move so since OYK/GJ was "better" than Lingzhi Shengren they could last probably around 20-25 moves against Greats (i.e H7Q/OYF)..
