Shen Yanxiao was scheduled to teach every afternoon and she could freely allocate the rest of her time. Iry had already handed Shen Yanxiao the agreed-upon dark nuclei that afternoon. Kehr had also sent her a bunch of secret books about dark nuclei and physical skills.
"Is this not... the martial arts of human beings?" Shen Yanxiao stared at the two secret martial arts books in her hands. Although the whole book was written in the language of the undead, Shen Yanxiao could see the traces of the human training methods between the words and the lines.
Recorded in these two books was the highest level of martial arts, without the use of even a little dou qi or magic.
Shen Yanxiao sat cross-legged on the bed and read the entire book.
She remembered that Xiu once said that, in the beginning, human beings were not able to use dou qi nor magic. These two forces had been hidden within their human bodies. Before they were discovered, human beings were fighting using martial arts, which was now called physical arts. Fighting the enemy at that time depended on the coordination and strength of the body.
These martial arts were more like chinese martial arts. After joining the organization, Shen Yanxiao had also undergone a long period of martial arts training. After all,
Judging from the history of human growth in the Radiance Continent, the foundation of the first human beings was martial arts. It was not until the dou qi and magic were discovered that they changed their pattern of cultivation.
This process of evolution from the ancient eastern martial arts to the western magic really made Shen Yanxiao lament the mystery of the world.
Shen Yanxiao opened the other book. The little people painted in it were posing in all kinds of positions. Several of them made Shen Yanxiao feel extremely familiar.
"Why does this look like Tai Chi?"
Using softness to conquer strength, beating the strong with weakness, Chinese Tai Chi!
Shen Yanxiao's whole person was in disarray. There were actually secret books similar to ancient Chinese Tai Chi in this world!
Shen Yanxiao learned Tai Chi for several months when she was in the organization, but because her immediate superior felt that, as a killer, this kind of soft martial arts could not achieve the goal of killing with one shot, she was asked to discard it. Shen Yanxiao had not touched Tai Chi for many years, but now she actually made contact with it again. The acc.u.mulation of those months in her body seemed to boil at this moment.
"This is interesting." Shen Yanxiao jumped out of bed and began to practice according to the contents of the book.
Because of the foundation from her previous life, this secret book was extremely simple for Shen Yanxiao.
Taotie, who had unknowingly flew out of Shen Yanxiao's body, sat on the bed with a big bag of food in his hands. He ate with relish while watching Shen Yanxiao's deliberate movements that were just like a slow-motion replay.
"Master, what are you doing?" Taotie tilted his head. He really could not understand what Shen Yanxiao was doing.
"Practicing martial arts." Shen Yanxiao answered.
"Master, are you really sure you can kill with that trick?" Taotie was so startled that he wasn't able to swallow the snacks in his mouth quickly. Could such a fighting style with a turtle's speed really be used in battle? He reckoned that before she could finish her actions, she would have already been thrown out of the way by the opponent. As it turned out, the secret books of the undead were unreliable and had no lethality at all. They were like steps in dancing and could not be used in battles, ah.
"You'll know by then." Shen Yanxiao smiled. It was really difficult to discuss the true meaning of Chinese martial arts with a magical beast. But she wondered why there was a martial arts book, which was similar to the ones in her previous life, in the hands of the undead. Was it coincidence, or...
