    By his own estimation, Cheung 3 Fung had not yet reached a level of internal power cultivation that he had witnessed in Gwok Jing some 90 years earlier, so we really can't compare Cheung 3 Fung to Damo, who, if the legends are to be believed, was at least as powerful as the Janitor Monk from DGSD.

    How good was Damo as a martial artist in the real life / historically?

    Well actually he thought his MARTIAL ARTS on the whole hasn't quite reached Guo Jings level yet.

    and we all know how notoriously modest Z3F is...knowing him, he would have probably said, "oh, i'm not too much off of GX. we both know bits of 9yang, after all."

    Z3F is incredible. from what small bits of 9yang that he memorized, and from the little luohan statues that GX gave him, he created ALL of wudang martial arts. read that again, folks...ALL of wudang martial arts. all the taichi stuff, everything. it was said that he figured out that there must be a 9yin kungfu technique out there, simply because he himself saw the gaps in 9yang and saw the theory behind it. if he spent more time on it, i think he could have invented 9yin! okay, maybe that's a little exaggeration, but it's not too far off the point. he is a class above most JY heroes like GJ and YG, simply because he created almost every single piece of his kungfu from scratch. i'm not willing to say that he's of DaMo and sweeper monk level (theoretically, sweeper should be below DaMo because sweeper learned shaolin arts). he's not at their level because after all, he did base a lot of his theories on the portion of 9yang that he knew. however, taichi was all his own...and simply from an internal cultivation technique he was able to create all wudang kungfu.

    3 cheers for Z3F...by the way, do think that since Z3F had his basis in 9yang, and ZWJ mastered the real 9yang, it made it easier for ZWJ to learn tai chi fist and sword?

    Yup, correct. I think it was mentioned in the novel that ZWJ managed to learn Tai Chi fast because of his knowledge in 9 Yang.
