    Default Teacher War: Xiao Yuanshan's teacher -vs- Qiu Qianren's teacher

    Xiao Yuanshan's teacher is a Han Chinese. I think that's the ONLY thing we know about that guy. No mention of his martial arts level.

    Qiu Qianren's teacher is ELOC contestant Shangguan Jiannan. He was a major Han patriot. Furthermore, I heard that his martial arts was much weaker than Qiu Qianren.

    If Shangguan Jiannan and Xiao Yuanshan's nameless teacher were to fight, who would you want to win in your imagination?

    I have a bit of starry-eyed syndrome with pre-Shaolin XYS and his feat of beating up the wulin fighters. Solely because of that I voted XYS's teacher.

    Xiao Yuanshan's teacher. It was specifically stated in the novel that Shangguan Jiannan's martial arts level was not high, but that people held him in high esteem because he was an extremely loyal Han patriot. Whereas Xiao Yuanshan's teacher must have been exceptionally skilled, to train Xiao Yuanshan to such an incredibly high level. Alas, we know no more about that character.

    If Shangguan Jiannan could train Qiu Qianren despite not being very good, couldn't the same thing happen with XYS's teacher?

    But, since XYS is likely stronger than Qiu Qianren, I would say XYS's teacher is stronger.

    Well, it was stated that Qiu Qianren himself improved drastically (much more than his brother), whereas for Xiao Yuanshan, I doubt he would have had much of a chance, since I personally got the impression that he got his martial arts to such a high level in large part because of his teacher.

    Which actually begs the question...who is this teacher, who could and would train a Khitan that had the ability to wipe out an entire contingent of relatively powerful martial artists?

    There's a possibility that like father like son, Xiao Yuan San is just as talented as his son.

    Xiao Feng's sifus weren't that good (they were among those who would be b!tch-slapped by XYS) yet look at how XF turned out.
