who do not know martial arts, they are likely to be a hindrance.” He
then answered, “If my six Shifus accompany me, I won’t need anybody else.”
Guo Jing agreed. The Khan gave him ten taels of gold for his journey and
offered the Six Freaks a part of the spoils plundered from Ong Khan.
Learning that he was to leave on a mission to the south, all of Guo
Jing’s Mongol friends also offered gifts to him.
