Guo Jing

If you were a fan of chinese sword-fighting novels, you probably would have read Jin Yong’s 'The Condor Heroes'. In this story there is a type of wu kung called 降龍十八掌. In this wu kung there is a ‘stroke’ called 飛龍在天. This is what the pictures reminded me off.

My favourite character in this story is the hero Guo Jing. He is an exponent of this wu kung and he has powerful internal strength. Guo Jing is a trustworthy man who loves his country and family and is true to his friends. He personifies the values of righteousness and loyalty.

But his type cannot survive in modern China. Not street smart enuf. At least according to our gahmen.

Guo Jing is straight-minded man but fortunately he has a very smart wife.

The earliest swordsman I knew was the one-armed swordsman (独臂刀) played by Wang Yu (王羽). I think Chun See has an earlier post on him.
