    Default Did Xie Xun know 18 Subduing Dragon Palm ?

    I am currently reading Heavenly Sword, Dragon Saber.
    I wondered when I across a passage says that Zhang Wuji knew 18 Subduing Dragon Palm in some extent because he was taught by Xie Xun, Golden Haired Lion King. Did Xie Xun know 18 Subduing Dragon Palm ? If so how did he manage learn it ?

    One more question. In HSDS, Yang Xiao knows Divine Flicking finger technique. he seems quite proficient with it. Does Divine Flicking finger technique same as Haung Yu Shi's ? If so how did Yang Xiao manage to learn ?

    In the first edition of HSDS, Xiexun did learn a few moments from this guy he met and subsequently taught ZWJ.

    However, in the 2nd ed, all this was removed.

    It doesn't seem to have any real connection with Huang Yaoshi's art. It's pretty common in wuxia to have multiple different arts by the same name. They may be similar in their working mechanism but they're not necessarily identical.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I have one more question. When Zhang Wuji was young he was attacked by dogs and almost lost his life. After that he remained in house of Zhu Ziliu's descendant while hiding his real identification. But somehow Zhu Ziliu's crafty descendant explored who he really was and prepared a trap. How did he know who Zhang Wuji was ?

    IIRC, he knew Zhang Wuji's name and he saw ZWJ fight with his nephew. The combination of ZWJ' last name and the MA that he knew gave him away. But ZZL didnt know for sure, he gambled and 'won'. After that ZWJ change his name.
    You do know that it is just fiction, dont you?

    However, is Yang Xiao the descendant of YG, a master of Tanzhi Shentong?
