It's always the obvious battles we neglect to do.
Kiu Fung and Gwok Jing...both heroes among heroes who each mastered the Hong Lung 28/18 Palms. One is the epitome of martial arts ferocity, the other the symbol of a solid martial arts foundation. What if they were to engage in an epic struggle to see who was the better fighter?
This would very likely be a very long, bitter fight, and I see Kiu Fung prevailing, but just *barely*. Gwok Jing would push Kiu Fung to his limit more than any other single opponent Kiu Fung had ever faced (the all-powerful Janitor Monk excluded). Even though Kiu Fung wins, he will be seriously wounded in the fight, and some of those wounds might even be permanent. Moreover, although Gwok Jing probably doesn't win the fight, he won't necessarily die either. If Gwok Jing survives, however, his injuries are just as severe or slightly more severe than Kiu Fung's.
I see no resolution within 1,000 strokes.
