    Default How powerful was Xiao Yao Sect's palm skill?

    Xiao Yao Sect had a list of very powerful skills which made WYZ, LQS, TSTL crazy strong, but was there much said about their palm skills such as Tian Shan 6 Yang Zhang (TS6YZ).

    Judging from their other skills, shouldn't it be on par our better than HL18Z?

    Difficult to say as we never see TS6YZ go up against a martial arts comparable to HL18Z, however if we look at the philosophy behind each art we may get some idea about how they compare.

    HL18Z is considered one of the most powerful, external yang martial arts, Easy to learn, simple to use and very destructive. On the other hand, TS6YZ is a much more complex system, requiring a mastery of both yin and yang that is beyond the capacity of most people. However it seems to be able to do a lot more than HL18Z.

    So in conclusion if you are looking for a user friendly art that gives predictable results then HL18Z is better. If you are looking for a more versatile art then go for TS6YZ.

    I would never have guessed, why 6 and yang in the name when it contained 9 stances and both Yin and Yang?

    Well, its not like Yiyangzhi has only 1 stance either.

    As for why 6, odd numbers are Yang and even are Yin (to my limited understanding), so 6 Yang does hint at a balance of Yin and Yang.

    I am no geomancy expert either, but both 6 & 9 are numbers which represent eternity. So combining them in the art hints at the limitless power it could generate.
