I'm about half way done with the novel.
Along the way I took notes on feats.
So here is a list of what I found interesting so far.
Will add more as I discover them.
By the way, the purpose of doing this is to assess the martial arts level of this era.
In DGSD, Xuzhu was said to have leaped several zhang upward while grabbing onto Tianshan Tonglao and Li Qiushui (by the way, if anyone can tell me EXACTLY how high he leaped, I would appreciate it). In SSWRB, there are 2 notable instances: Priest Musang leaped up over 2 zhang high, while Yuan Chengzhi leaped up 3 zhang high.
Previously, I noted that Xiao Feng had the distinct showcase of casting a weight of several thousand pounds on an opponent. But now, this record has been broken. Yuan Chengzhi apparently cast a weight of TEN thousand pounds on Cui Ximin: 刚跨出两步，忽见眼前人影一晃，有人举掌向自己肩头按来。崔希敏横刀便砍。那人这一按快极，倏然间已搭上他 肩头。崔希敏身子登如万斤之重，再也跨不出步去
By the way, just to clear any doubt, all this "thousands of pounds" talk, it's all figurative expression, not to be taken literally. But i just post this for fun, and to show that it's not shabby, even if we can't gauge the exact weight imposed.
Sealing of Acupoints (SOA)
Apparently, one whose acupoint has been sealed by Huashan martial arts, must be unsealed using Huashan martial arts; otherwise he will suffer many problems in life, including the blockage of urination, headaches, and internal energy loss. This is kind of a unique property of SOA.
Long Distance... something
It may not be LDA, but it does have a good dose of palm wind. And the executor is probably only about 10% of Yuan Chengzhi's level:
他一言不发，一掌一掌的缓缓发出，又稳又狠。阿九渐觉不妙，被对方掌风逼得娇喘连连，身法已不如先前迅捷。 ... 出手虽慢，阿九却总是脱不出他掌风的笼罩之下。
Tossing of Bodies
Yuan Chengzhi tossed a body to a distance of 7 to 8 zhang away:
Inserting Spear Into Pillar
Previously, a comparison was made to show that Yang Guo and Xiao Feng can both drive spears deep into solid surface. Now, Yuan Chengzhi has shown that he too is not shabby in this field:
He drove the halberds deeply into a large pillar.
Jumping Across the Ocean
Shi Potian is the best known ocean leaper in Jin Yong universe. Of course, what he really did was leap off a boat and land on a piece of wooden flank that he threw across the water. But since we're talking about jumping across the ocean, I just want people to know, that Rong Cai from "Sword Stained With Royal Blood" also performed a qualifying ocean leap:
双足一顿，提气向岸上跃去 ... 荣彩下落时见足底茫茫一片水光，正自惊惶，突见船板飞到，恰好落在脚下水面之上，当真大喜过望，左脚在船板 上一借力。跃上了岸
Not only did Rong Cai land on the wooden flank, he used it as the middle station for a longer leap to the land.
