    Default If you were to learn Wuxia martial arts...

    What sort of style would you learn and think you are most suitable learning?

    1 Yin vs Yang
    2 Hard vs soft
    3 Full of deceptions, trickery and false moves vs simple and straight
    4 Complex vs simple
    (are 1 and 2 same, likewise 3 and 4 the same?)

    What weapon would you use?
    Palm
    Sword
    Sabre
    Stick
    Others?

    Would you focus on purifying internal energy or mastering techniques or lightness kungfu?

    Would you try to modify existing ones or try to invent new ones or harmonise different ones or focus on complete mastering of one technique?

    Would use poison and needles?

    What others skills outside MA would you like to acquire?

    wow... looks like you've given this a lot of thought...

    well, i haven't thought that much about it... but here's a general idea:

    as a girl, i'd tend to choose Yin over Yang...
    i think i'd like variation, but not much trickery and false moves, so i think i'd lean towards the simple and straight side... (it would work eventually... i mean, look at GJ... )

    I'd like something sword related, not sure about what type though

    i don't think i could be bothered inventing new ones.... seems to take so much effort... i might die in the process too

    yes i would use needles... i've always liked playing darts... and not to brag, but i'm fairly good........

    I will choose,
    Lightness Kungfu (Qing Gong) to avoid getting hit, run/escape with ease...
    Trickery to avoid getting hit, run/escape
    A stick at hand but with sword movement (of cos not to the standard of DGQB who is able to use a stick as a weapon)
    and a palm action skill to defend in case

    I would learn 13 levels of Long Xiang Bo Er Gong!

    Actually, I favour qinggong, but I think its clear that internal energy rules in JY's universe, and possessing massive internal energy will give the best lightness kungfu

    I guess I am not that intelligent and rather simple-minded, I might go for something simple, L/R technique

    I'll want to learn things like HL18Z and 9Yang and 9Yin. My choice of weapon would most likely be a sword because it's double-sided and would be most convienant.

    Ode to gallantry arts for me.

    For weapon, I would choose a butcher's knife. Can be used to fight, and also for cooking purposes.

    If you use a butcher knife to fight then wouldn't it be bloodstained by the time you go cooking? Yuck!

    Actually that's gross I know. The butcher's knife got another function - can hide away from enemies when you pose yourself as a butcher selling meat.

    But you also have to note that the butcher knife is short and is hard to use when you fight someone using a large weapon like a spear (maybe you'll die before you could do anything).

    Maybe add some slices of meat on the knife, or tie a string to two butcher knifes, and you get a nunchaku.

    As much as I hate this skill, the Sad Palm will be suitable for me. However when I'm angry, I see myself using the combination of Treading Waves Light Steps and Six Meridian Swords to kick ***, like Duan Yu in pissed off mode.

    Me... I'd rather Yin over Yang, Trickery and false moves to avoid getting hit and to confuse my opponent, I'd rather that the attacks be simple but if it's better to use the complex moves, then so be it.

    What weapon would you use? I'd choose some variation of palms and sword.

    Would you focus on purifying internal energy or mastering techniques or lightness kungfu? Both?

    I'm not smart enough to invent new moves, but to change them or create a variation that'll suit me sounds like something I'd do.

    Would use poison and needles? YEAH!!!! I love poison needles! I play darts often and I'm getting better (although I'm still not that good).

    What others skills outside MA would you like to acquire? I'm not sure... I'd try to learn everything I could.

    Six Meridian Swords ...mainly for killing annoying flies and mosquitoes

    Or maybe that energy sucking one (forgot it's name...) from DGSD. Everytime I'm hungover, I can just suck people's internal energy and I'll feel great!

    That's as effective as using a sword to kill flies and mosquitoes.

    Will Chose yang over yin but only the softest and most gentle type.

    Will learn/master the sword and the spear.

    Focus more on refinning my internal strength.

    Go for simple and not complex moves.

    My two cents worth...
