Besides Shi Potian?
Besides Shi Potian?
Crucial requirement - illiteracy.
Other requirements - basic martial knowledge, good imagination
Who else are illiterate besides SPT and WXB?

What was Ode to Gallantry anyway, I mean the Martial Art itself?
I'm curious to know why everyone thought it was a martial art in the first place. Their martial interpretations of the writings on the poem are very, very strained.
I've only seen the series, but was it accurate that everyone who practiced it increased their martial arts significantly? If so, was there ever an explanation on how that happened? It seems quite farfetched considering some of these guys spend years living and breathing martial arts, and some "placebo" martial arts poem is able to cause them to advance greatly.
It pains me to think that if I ever ended up in that room with my wife she'd end up learning the art and I'd be sitting there sulking.
Or worse, since I can read some words but not all, I'd end up with fire deviation from having skipped several steps here and there.

My own guess is that it simply focused their attention onto the martial arts, making them constantly think about it and experiment with new radical ideas. They also had access to the best martial artists in the world to spar with and bounce ideas off, so it isn't too surprising that they exhibited great improvement. This isn't due to the content of the words though (which we know to be worthless), just their captivating qualities.
Sheldon would say: The creator of Ode to Gallantry.Who can solve Ode to Gallantry?
Unless, of course, the creator forgot, which could happen if he spent the next 40 years playing video games. But wait, they didn't have that back then. OK, maybe he went fishing instead. What kind of fish hooks do you think they used? Did they use artificial coloring on the bait to make it more attractive? Ah, back to the point. It is possible that even the creator forgot the details of his creation. So answers are never really perfect.

TC to Ken: "You need to watch the ending of ROCH 83."
Perhaps Sha Gu from ROCH is a good candidate
Zhou Bo Tong or Guo Jing
