    Default Mr Mo Da vs Sword God, whose swordsmanship is more IMPRESSIVE?

    Quote Originally Posted by Lanny Lin chapter 2

The sharp ring of the blade echoed. The short fat man was so astonished that he jumped back instinctively, afraid to be hurt by the sword. Then he saw the old man slowly insert the sword into the bottom of the huqin, till the whole sword disappeared into the instrument. No one would have expected a sword to be hidden in an old huqin.
    “You are talking nonsense!” the old man shook his head again, then slowly walked out of the teashop. Everyone watched him disappear into the rain, and all there was left was the sad music from the huqin, vaguely drifting from the distance.
    “Look, look at the table!” someone uttered in a cry of surprise. Everyone looked in the direction his finger was pointing. There were seven teacups on the table where the short fat man had sat; a ring, about half an inch wide, had been neatly sliced from each cup. The seven china rings had fallen by the cups, yet none of the cups had ever moved an inch.
    Mr Mo Da, the headmaster of the Hengshan sword school in Xiao Ao Jiang Hu, whose nickname is Xiao Xiang Ye Wu - Night Rain of Xiao Xiang, can slice 7 china rings from 7 china cups in just one move without stirring the cups.

    Sword God Zhuo Bufan in DGSD can slice a table into 9 identical pieces in a flash.

    Which feat do you think is more impressive?

    But Mo Da couldn't even beat Yue Lingshan at the Song Shan Meet right? I liked him a lot but I don't think he's that highly-skilled.

    Zhuo Bufan is the bloke who was hanging around with that loser Murong Fu, right? I have several things to say about him - none of them are polite so I'll just hold my tongue!

    Well, there were quite a few chaps who "hung around" Murong Fu. But I don't believe SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan is one who "hung around" Murong Fu. SWORD GOD was the one who effortlessly inflicted a long wound on Duan Yu and who "rescued" Xuzhu from A Pair of Monsters of Pearl Cliff, among other things. His magnificent contributions to the colorfulness of Jin Yong's character/martial arts descriptions is the reason several of us consider him one of the greatest hidden gems in wuxia fiction ever.

    Much as I am a fan of SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan, in this instance I would give the prize to Mo Da. Mr Mo's feat required much more precise control since it required small, fast and precise movements. A table is much bigger then a winecup.

    However, I am not sure if Mr Mo can transmit his voice clearly across a mountain range of throw an object across 3 miles.

    Are you mixing SWORD GOD up with one of Murong Fu's retainers?

    In fact he's really that high-skilled, because Jin Yong wrote about his feat in Chapter 2 of XAJH.
    Futhermore, IMO, Mr Mo Da was capable of winning over Yue Lingshan in no time, but he didn't do so since he thought that Yue Lingshan was a little girl.

    How come YLS managed to defeat pugilists who were higher ranked than she was? Did she dazzle them into defeat with her as before unknown swordplay or did they underestimate her?

    there's still a decent amount of gap between mr. mo da & "pugulists higher than YLS". mo da should be near the best within the 5 yue sword sects...YLS as good as she is, is still nowhere near the top in the 5 yue.

    Mr Mo Da's feat has Linghu Chong praising, so i should say that is quite a feat.

    AFAIK, Mr Mo Da and the other headmasters of the 5 Yue sword schools were far far superior to YLS but they were all lost to YLS since they either made concessions to her or discounted her.

    no, when he sliced the 7 teacups in the restaurant, Linghu Chong wasn't there.

    Only one person who was a nobody at the time? When SWORD GOD sliced the table into 9 identical pieces, the crowd of nearly one thousand experts cheered naturally at this accomplishment. There were experts there near Murong Fu's martial arts level, and SWORD GOD took them all by storm.

    Not saying SWORD GOD's feat is more impressive, just that if we were to compare strictly on the basis of praises, SWORD GOD wins hands down.

    he defeated YLS in the fight, he hit the sword off her hand, laughed, and gave her mercy. while YLS just sneakily shot a rock on his chest

    Well, the teacups were all of identical make, presumably, and they were all on the table, hence of equal height. One horizontal slash could get all of them. Sword God on the other hand had to make many cuts so it was harder.

    but the extreme impressiveness here is he sliced the teacups without stirring the cups and the 7 rings were identical in shape!

    The impressiveness to me was not due so much to the speed or the size of the cups. It was impressive due to the circular nature of the rings, meaning it wasn't just one straight slash but it had to incorporate seven minute circular strokes along with the straight stroke.

    As well as the obvious: the cups were made out of some sort of ceramic (like porcelain); that type of material tends to shatter.
