Time for some ZWJ-glorifying threads instead of the monotony of ZWJ-bashing.
There is a clear decline of martial arts in JinYong universe from Song Dynasty onwards. The last of the "Greats" level fighter appeared in HSDS with Zhang Sanfeng and Zhang Wuji.
Do you think there is any other person after this time can quality as a Great or even close to one?
Zhang Wuji also appears to be equipped with the best set of skills. 9 Yang, QKDNY, Taiji Fist/Sword etc. Possible contender might be GJ with 9 Yin, XL18Z, L/R Fists etc.
