Huo Zhenxiao’s calm words seemed to be a flat thunderclap.
Instantly, it made Chen Dong’s heart beat faster, as if it was about to jump out of his chest.
Even his breathing became somewhat uncontrollable and ragged in an instant.
Controlling one’s muscles was supposed to be the key point to enhancing one’s battle power!
Whether it was a martial artist who had encountered a bottleneck or a martial artist whose realm was rising smoothly, they were all trying to find ways to control more muscles.
It’s like the same punch.
Someone who can control more muscles and explode with power at the same time, a punch is definitely more powerful!
Now, Chen Dong is only relying on the speculative method that he learned from “Black Hand Aros”, relying on the few muscles that he can control to push other muscles, thus gaining slightly more power in disguise.
It’s just as powerful, but it’s a far cry from real muscle control.
It was just that controlling muscles was extremely difficult, and even though Chen Dong had never slacked off on his practice in this area, his progress was extremely slow.
What was more crucial was this.
This set of movements could actually increase the chances of sensing qi!
For attacks such as knife qi, sword qi, fist power ……, etc., if one could perceive qi, not only could the power of the moves be increased, but one could also kill from space!
Just like Yuan Yigang’s “God of Killing Slash”.
Just like Iga Hiryu’s “Eight Feet of Kure”.
These are all moves that can be used after the realization of Qi!
They are so powerful that even if they are used from across the air, they can still have a terrifying power that can kill!
Facing Iga Hiryu’s “Eight Feet of Kumi-Shou” in the bamboo courtyard, Chen Dong had a rough understanding of the techniques used in the emergence of sword qi.
But techniques were techniques, and perceptions were perceptions.
Even if he had managed to injure Iga Feiyu with his slash, in all honesty, it was still only an image that he had learned, and it was not worth mentioning compared to the power of Iga Feiyu’s “Eight Feet Gumi Slash”.
Afterwards, Chen Dong even kept recalling the battle that night over and over again.
But unlike controlling muscles, sensing Qi was really hard to replicate!
It depended on enlightenment, not stealing!
On the contrary, this set of movements that Huo Zhenxiao had inherited from Uncle Daojun had such a miraculous effect!
“The effect of this set of movements, if word got out, the whole world would probably explode, right?”
Chen Dong sighed heartily.
Controlling muscles and sensing Qi, these were all key tools for martial artists to significantly increase their strength.
And the slow and simple set of movements that Huo Zhenxiao had just performed had such two effects at the same time, which could not be considered amazing.
Huo Zhenxiao did not take up Chen Dong’s words, but said directly, “Since you remembered it, let’s practice it once first.”
Chen Dong nodded his head, then he closed his eyes and recalled the entire movement performed by Huo Zhenxiao before.
Only after making sure that there were no omissions did he open his eyes, took a deep breath, and then slowly began to practice.
The movements were slow and focused.
Even his breathing and exhalation were extremely restrained, with his mind always recalling the frequency of Huo Zhenxiao’s breathing and exhalation just now.
Only, when he reached the third movement in a row.
Chen Dong suddenly felt that something was wrong.
When his hands and feet changed their movements, they always felt incomparably stagnant, as if the joints were stuck in each other.
Even his breathing was uncontrollably disordered, sometimes panting like an ox, sometimes forcing his breath to be held.
Such changes caused Chen Dong to be terrified and disoriented.
Even though he tried hard to steady his breathing and barely continued his strong practice.
But the jams between his joints and the disorder of his breathing were as if the dike had broken, and from the moment this feeling appeared, it immediately surged in intensity.
When the practice reached the fifth movement.
There was a poof!
Chen Dong stumbled and fell to the ground.
In a flash, the panting was as intense as an ox.
While Chen Dong’s face was full, it was already covered with beads of sweat.
While his chest was heaving violently and he was panting heavily, Chen Dong was up and out of breath as he said to Huo Zhenxiao, “What, what’s going on? I, I …… clearly followed your movements and breathing exhalation ah, why, why ……”
The words did not finish.
Huo Zhenxiao was walking towards Chen Dong, raised his hand and patted Chen Dong’s shoulder, said with a meaningful smile, “Senior brother, there are really some things that cannot even be replicated, only by enlightenment!”
Chen Dong was dumbfounded.
Breathing heavily, his body was indescribably exhausted.
Even even though he was sitting on the ground at this moment, that tiredness in his body was intensifying instead of diminishing, and the sweat that was all over his body was constantly seeping out.
A few seemingly simple movements made Chen Dong a hundred times more exhausted than the three hours of continuous archery at the top of the city just now.
It was clear that he had only performed five movements, but Chen Dong felt as if his body had been emptied.
“There are still two hours left before the morning drill, so you can practice in the training room for these two hours, and when the time is up, you can go back to the schoolyard and practice with everyone else.”
Huo Zhenxiao said calmly, then was walking towards the outside: “Many things, just the image is useless at all, you have to image the intention also like, seemingly simple movements, but in fact a flower, a leaf, a bodhi, a world.”
Chen Dong sat paralyzed on the ground, frowning as he pondered these words of Huo Zhenxiao.
Huo Zhenxiao stopped walking and said without looking back, “I heard Bai Qi say that you think that the matter of the Hundred Clans Order should be planted to re-divide the clans and intensify the hatred?”
“Well, that would also be the most beneficial to us and the easiest thing we could do.”
Chen Dong returned to his senses and did not hide, saying straightforwardly, “A dozen or so barbarian clans joining forces would be able to force their way under Zhenjiang City, hundreds of barbarian clans joining forces would be like a sword that breaks the sky and presses across Zhenjiang City, once the situation succeeds, it would be havoc for both Zhenjiang City and the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, allowing them to fall back into infighting and killing each other, and it would be the best policy for us to watch from the wall. ”
“Do you know how far the Hundred Clans Order has developed?” Huo Zhenxiao asked.
Chen Dong shook his head, “I don’t know, you can tell me.”
Huo Zhenxiao still turned his back on Chen Dong and shook his head, laughing lightly, “What a coincidence, I don’t know either.”
Chen Dong: “……”
After taking a deep breath, Chen Dong said, “Senior brother, the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riding Army probably didn’t even know that their master would be so skinny, right?”
Huo Zhenxiao digressed, “Then which tribal leader would you say would be better to behead?”
Chen Dong pondered for a while and said, “I don’t know much about the Hundred Tribes outside the domain, but if we consider the current situation, firstly, the chief tribe to be beheaded must be powerful, a small tribe is not enough to stir up the storm clouds, nor is it enough to shake the Hundred Tribes to join forces, secondly, the chief tribe to be be beheaded must have a mortal enemy to facilitate our planting of evidence, as long as we have these two points, it will be much easier to break up the Hundred Tribes to join forces by clicking on their faces. It will be much easier to break up the joint efforts of the hundred tribes.”
“Good! Actually, I’m thinking the same as you.”
Huo Zhenxiao smiled and nodded his head, half sideways, his gaze tilted towards Chen Dong, the corner of his mouth turned upwards.
This action caused Chen Dong’s heart and mind to freeze, suddenly having a bad premonition.
In the next second, Huo Zhenxiao smiled wickedly and said, “Then some time later, I will pick an auspicious day, you and I, master and brother, will leave Zhenjiang City together, go far into the depths of the Northern Domain, and kill a tribal leader at point blank!”
Huo Zhenxiao walked away, leaving Chen Dong sitting on the ground with a dumbfounded expression.
To leave Zhenjiang City in total and travel far into the depths of the Northern Domain to kill a clan leader at point blank?
This was a buffet?
But the words came out of Huo Zhenxiao’s mouth, and with his strength, if it was really a secret snipe, it would really be similar to eating a buffet, killing whoever you want point blank.
But …… why do I have to be brought along?
This is the question that confuses Chen Dong the most. 300,000 people in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army are capable and strong.
Which of them is not more suitable than him to accompany along with the a*sa*sination, Bai Qi and one of the golden guards?
Strength might be a match, but battlefield experience and experience, Chen Dong asked himself, were far beyond the reach of Bai Qi and the individual Golden Guards!
Looking at the door of the practice room which was tightly closed.
A large door, seemingly wooden, gave a thick and heavy feeling, completely isolating the outside world from sound.
Taking a deep breath, Chen Dong suppressed the mixed thoughts in his mind and got up again, moving his arms and legs, “No matter why senior brother brought me along, the immediate goal is to learn this set of movements, as long as I master this set of movements, my martial strength will be as strong as ever and there will be no more stagnation.”
As he spoke, the light in Chen Dong’s eyes gradually grew bigger.
The sharpness was blazing, and the determination was unparalleled.
Immediately afterwards, Chen Dong was immersed in the movement training taught by Huo Zhenxiao.
Time and time again, he repeated, sweating and panting.
When Chen Dong reached the fifth movement each time, all the Qi in his body would disappear instantly like a floodgate opening, and his whole body would enter a state of extreme exhaustion.
The clothes all over his body were already drenched with sweat.
However, Chen Dong did not give up, and after a short rest, he would proceed to a new round of repetition.
Inside the practice room, there was no insulation, even though, apart from a few vents, the whole practice room was almost a secret room and the temperature was not too low.
But the wind and snow blowing in through the vents also made the temperature definitely not much higher.
Every time Chen Dong failed to rest and retrained, the sweat on his robe had already condensed into ice crystals, rustling down with Chen Dong’s movements.
Even so, Chen Dong did not have the slightest thought of slacking off.
The encounters of his childhood had made him clear that the more distressed he was, the more resilient he had to be, and that the slightest slackening would cause the distress in front of him to cascade down like a tarzan tumble.
Total immersion in the training of the movements, without distraction.
So much so that the two hours are made extremely short.
It was only when the sound of the morning drill horn was heard from outside that Chen Dong broke away from his state of focused immersion.
“The sixth move, it should be soon ……”
Chen Dong wiped a handful of sweat from his face and said with a firm gaze, “There are one hundred and eight moves in the whole set, ten thousand feet high, even if all of these three months are used to sharpen this set of moves, it will be worth it!”
Uncle Daojun’s inheritance was able to improve the chances of controlling muscles and sensing out qi.
This set of movements was already no less than a supreme secret book!
If it were to be pa*sed on to the outside world, it would definitely lead to a frenzy of plundering by the major powers.
It was even enough to shock the entire martial arts world!
One must know that there are many factors that determine a martial artist’s level of strength.
But being able to control muscles and sense qi is definitely a watershed in determining a martial artist’s strength or weakness!
Chen Dong was not so foolish as to buy such a “rare treasure”.
When Chen Dong opened the door of the training room, a biting cold wind instantly hit his face.
In an instant, Chen Dong shivered, and the sweat on his body, too, condensed into ice crystals under the ravages of this cold wind.
Chen Dong’s body shook.
The ice crystals on his body instantly rustled and fell.
But as the ice crystals condensed and fell, the coldness on his body became more and more intense.
Without the slightest pause, Chen Dong clenched his teeth and headed straight for the school grounds.
He had to train this set of movements, but he also had to stick to the morning drill of the Great Snow Dragon Riders at the same time.
While the morning drill was helping him to solidify his foundation, this set of movements was helping him to pull up his ceiling.
The subsequent half month period.
Chen Dong’s life in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army seemed to be planned into a few fixed lines.
He would carry out missions during the day, rest during the first half of the night, and then arrive at the practice room in the early hours of the morning to train his movements on time, and would not leave until the morning drill, and so on and so forth.
Perhaps it was also because of Huo Zhenxiao’s intentional arrangement, since the first time he stood guard on a city defence mission, the squad Chen Dong was in would not take on missions for more than 12 hours a day at all.
Such a situation made Meng Dabiao, Sun Kong and Zhou Yao in the squad all puzzled.
Only Chen Dong and Bai Qi were clear about what was going on.
It was the latter part of the day.
The practice room.
Chen Dong sat paralyzed on the floor, panting and sweating like rain.
Even his hands and feet, in their extreme exhaustion, were trembling incessantly.
But his eyes, however, were full of determination.
In the silence, the sound of the door opening rang out.
Chen Dong didn’t even turn his head back, and while breathing heavily with his mouth open, he laughed, “Senior brother, still awake at this late hour?”
“Came to see you.”
With his hands behind his back, Huo Zhenxiao calmly walked over to Chen Dong’s side.
Looking down at the water stains underneath Chen Dong, he said, “You practiced urinating?”
Chen Dong: “……”
What the hell …… is this really Master Huo?
He breathlessly looked up with contempt at Huo Zhenxiao and raised his finger to point at the sweat on his face, “Can’t you see that this is sweat from my body?”
Huo Zhenxiao calmly said, “I was just trying to make a joke to ease your mind.”
Chen Dong was speechless for a while.
Huo Zhenxiao seemed to be calm to an eerie degree throughout, even if he was deliberately relaxing to make a joke, reasonably speaking, Chen Dong could not tell that Huo Zhenxiao was really joking at all.
“It’s been half a month, practice a bit and I’ll see.”
Huo Zhenxiao calmly took three steps back, his gaze looking at Chen Dong with anticipation, “One hundred and eight moves, I wonder how many moves you have practiced in fifteen days, I remember when you first learned them, the limit was five, right?”
Ever since he had taught Chen Dong fifteen days ago, Huo Zhenxiao had not come back to the practice room in the past fifteen days, so he did not know about Chen Dong’s progress.
Arriving this evening was a test of sorts for Chen Dong.
Chen Dong nodded, his rest was almost over, and even if Huo Zhenxiao did not come, he would still enter a new round of training again.
After getting up and standing still.
Chen Dong struggled to take three deep breaths in an effort to calm himself down.
With that, it was time to train slowly.
In the training room, there was silence.
Chen Dong’s movements were slow and gentle.
But it was obvious to see that as the movements switched, Chen Dong was extremely loaded.
Sweat seemed to be tricked out from his forehead, dripping slowly towards the ground along the cold, steely angles of his blade.
Huo Zhenxiao, on the other hand, always looked at Chen Dong calmly.
If there was any change, it was only the anticipation that gradually filled his eyes.
When Chen Dong reached the fifth move, his movements gave a noticeable lurch.
This scene caused Huo Zhenxiao’s pair of sword brows to twist slightly.
After a mere pause, Chen Dong’s movements became flowing once again.
Slow, gentle, seemingly gentle, strange and simple movements, but after each movement was completed, it seemed to carry a great pressure, causing Chen Dong to consume a great deal.
The seventh movement.
By the time he reached the eighth movement, Chen Dong’s body was already drenched, as if he had just been fished out of the water.
And the movements, too, had become obscure and difficult, every inch of change and movement, as if …… it weighed a thousand pounds!
“Is this the end? The eighth movement ……”
This was the thought in Huo Zhenxiao’s mind.
The thought had just started.
Chen Dong’s movements swooped and changed, the ninth move!
Huo Zhenxiao’s heart and soul immediately shook, and a sharp aura exploded in his eyes.
At this moment, even his heart could not help but thump faster.
In his vision, Chen Dong’s movements were obscure and difficult, but he was still firmly moving and changing little by little.
Every inch of change seemed to be a heavy hammer, ruthlessly smashing into Huo Zhenxiao’s heart.
When the ninth movement came to a close.
Huo Zhenxiao’s eyes shone brightly, but his hands quietly clenched into fists, and unknowingly, his palms actually had some beads of sweat on them.
“It’s over.” Huo Zhenxiao murmured softly.
The quiet and silent practice room.
Yet, an incomparably laboured and hoarse voice rang out violently.
“Who, said, that?”
