    Default Exerting qinggong without moving your body?

    保定帝托着钟灵的手臂,也不见他从身跳跃,突然间凌空而起,平平稳稳越过了树墙。

    Translation: Emperor Baoding grasped Zhong Ling's arm. His body did not jump or flex, but suddenly levitated into the sky. Smoothly and steadily, they flew past the tree wall.

    From Chapter 8 of TL8B. He didn't even move his body or flex his legs to jump, but yet managed to shoot straight up into the air and fly past a wall, while holding someone else. And both of them floated past the wall 'smoothly and steadily'. This seems pretty bloody incredible to me! Is there any equivalent feat from anyone else in another novel? The only thing I can think of is Yideng managing to move while sitting cross-legged without having to stand up, but this, to me, seems just as, if not more, incredible.

    There's one from Huodu: 也不见他移步抬脚,身子微晃,已站在台口。

    I think Most of the time, it's just not mentioned whether they consciously prepared for the jump or not, unless the performance is viewed by a newbie like Zhong Ling.
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    he probably moved his feet and kept the rest of his body still, just exert force through his ankles.

    On a similar line, there are also often cases of Moving Without Appearing to Move.

    For instance, HYS was behind MCF in Cloud Manor and when MCF suddenly struck behind her, it appeared to observers that HYS didn't move yet MCF didn't hit. No blur or anything, just as if HYS were a ghost.

    Yeah, at second blush, it's much more common than it first appeared. Oh well.
