The first literary mention of vajra-musti comes from the Manasollasa of the Chalukya king Someswara III —although it has been conjectured to have existed since as early as the Maurya dynasty. Matches were patronized by royalty and wrestlers thus became held in high regard. The Jyesti clan trained specifically in malla-yuddha and vajra-musti.
The Malla Purana is a Kula Purana associated with the Jyesti sub-caste, and is thought to date back to the 13th century. It describes the preparation of the arena, and exercises used, types of wrestlers, defines necessary physical characteristics, techniques of wrestling, and provides a fairly precise account of which foods wrestlers should eat in each season of the year.
By the 16th century, the Jyestimalla were synonymous with fighting, renowned athletes and professional fighters who would act as bodyguards for the rich. During the Mughal era, Negrito aboriginals of Gujerat sometimes mistakenly referred to in European writings as being from Madagascar due to their appearance were trained in vajra-musti from infancy.
They have a captain over them, and they do not perform any other service in the kingdom. By the colonial period, the Jyesti clan became known as Jetti. At this time the Jetti of Baroda are recorded as practicing naki ka kustia form of wrestling with bagh nakh. James Scurry wrote the following account while he was a prisoner of Tipu Sultan in the late s.
Their heads were close shaved, their bodies oiled, and they wore only a pair of short drawers. The family tradition of wrestling lost its prestige without its royal patronage.
Modern Indians regarded such violent sports as barbarically outdated. Even the relatively safe malla-yuddha dwindled in popularity.
Fights persisted nonetheless, typically held during Dasara festivals. Australian martial artist John Will trained in vajra-musti with one of the last masters in the s, during which time the art was already nearly extinct.
Vajra-musti matches are still held during the annual Mysore Dasara festival, a tradition dating back to the Wadiyar dynasty in Unlike the bloody matches of old, modern combatants use knuckle-dusters with blunt studs.
The fight ends immediately after first blood is drawn, and the referee's verdict is seldom questioned. On the rare occasion when the decision is disputed, the loser or his guru can appeal to the judges panel. The umpire and the judges are normally former wrestlers with decades of experience.Once a common youth with average talent, until he found a strange cube that changed his destiny and set him on the path to becoming the greatest cultivator in the 33 heavens and 18 abysses.

Lin Ming seemed valiant and noble, but in truth that was because there was a sharp aura that came from his forehead. He became increasingly perfect and flawless because of the many transformations in his life, his appearance and temperament stood out as a dragon among men.
He had lived through many great changes, and the air around him seemed much sharper and fiercer than before. He is described to have sword-straight eyebrows that slanted towards his temples and that his appearance was resolute and proud.
He gave off a sharp feeling as if he were some treasure sword hidden in a sheath. Lin Ming's nose was straight and his face seemed to be carved by the sword of a master. His back was broad, his spine strong. His legs were long and filled with potent power. Every muscle striation seemed to flow like a river, appearing like art itself.
Every subtle line of his muscles was filled with powerful and dominant beauty. His skin seemed as if it were a work of art carved from the most precious jade. At this time, his entire body could be called perfection. His long black hair hung loose and his momentum was extraordinary. Just by standing there, he resembled a spear, noble and dignified. Lin Ming, at times, also resembled a young and elegant scholar.
But, there was actually a great dragon slumbering within his body. Once it awoke, the heavens and earth would tremble! In the beginning, Lin Ming always had a heart for the martial way and would practice martial arts all-day until the pain was bone-deep.

He is also a very hardworking young man that believes those who view martial arts as a tool to get fame and glory will fall.

At one time, he had been named a demon even amongst those demonic realm cultivators.But anyways, the novel is really good. The novel starts out with a very basic approach, you have the enemies and MC getting a very powerful object that helps him cultivate and get stronger.
The world is very well made and interesting to read about. We do not know a lot, but the MC will interact with most of the super powers in one way or the other. And the MC felt really stupid, trying to court death every 10 seconds. There are also a good amount of characters around the MC, Demonic Ape and Shameless Monk are basically the trio and they themselves have their own personalities and are great overall.

L is one of the 5 traditional arts of Heavens Riches Five Paths which focus on the manipulation of the five traditional.
The breathing method of E. EOTL had long gotten rid of the traditional movements and forms and has instead been taught so that each successor could incorporate EOTL into their own fighting styles as a way to advance the art. Essentially, EOTL uses the "quality, not quantity" approach, as the art relies on having a very refined and pure Ki even if not much in amount, instead of enormous quantity of unrefined Ki, the breathing method is the key to purifying the Ki to be used, similar to how only pure uranium can be used to create an atomic explosion.
Fire Dragon states that the art takes Yin Ki and Yang Ki and turns them into negative and positive charges which are then collided. The focal point of breathing is Yin of inhaling negative charge and Yang of exhaling positive charge.
Due to the Metal elements presence in the body the user's body is very tough . Lightning Tiger's master was said to have advanced the art to such a degree that even the master of Heavens Riches could not stand up to it.

Thunder Martial (TM)
It has been noted that in the hands of a gosu with great inner ki, even a dead leaf can become a weapon that can pierce iron plates. The bodies of martial artists and regular humans have various important points on the body that determine ki output as well as one's mortality.
There are twelve ki veins and eight erratic ki passages which are joined by the regular flow of one's ki. According to Gang Ryongno-one can take a Divine Heavenly Destruction Technique head on and live; however, Sa Paecheoneven whilst nursing internal injuries, took half of them from the Heavenly Destroyer himself and survived.
The Iron Lion is a master of said techniques. The Soseondang Clan existed near the Yunnan Castle and over generations they pursued the " ultimate understanding " of the sword rather than fame or honour. The swordsmanship of Soh Cheongwon the One Sword, the late 5th Clan Master of the Soseondang, was so swift and sublime that even renowned martial artists could barely follow his movements with their eyes.
Though not much is currently known about it, the style seems to involve powerful strikes. It is a truly enigmatic art that, once mastered, enables its user to harmonise with the ki of natural elements such as plants and rocks and utilise their power as one pleases; retracing the martial art's origins, the Life Drain Technique is more like a Sage Art or Taoist Art than a martial art.
At some point during his life, he passed on the martial art style to Gha Woobok. The strength of these techniques is enough that they can clash evenly with the Divine Heavenly Destruction Techniques utilised by both the Heavenly Destroyer and his disciple. These are martial arts techniques that are not specifically linked to any particular martial arts style.

Once their training is complete and the possessed novices have fully inherited the possessor's martial art, the spirit departs their body. However, this forbidden technique comes with extreme drawbacks. For the process to be successful, novices need both a complete understanding of the martial art they are inheriting as well as being compatible with the martial art itself and a tremendous amount of ki.
In addition, the novices need incredible mental and physical fortitude in order to overcome the extreme pain caused by undergoing Ultimate Metamorphosis during possession. Due to this, despite the strict selection criteria and the many years of training that follow, the number of people that survive this accursed technique are close to zero.
However, it is said that those who successfully inherit their possessor's martial art attain a martial arts prowess powerful enough to rule their era. The user must first set up multiple small stone altars and once the target enters its vicinity, they get trapped in an illusory space leaving them at the mercy of the user.

Outside the ward, the ward can be seen as a massive whirlpool of fog. Certain people have the power to cast sensory illusions, ranging from simple ocular illusions such as changing one's appearance to overwhelming somatosensory ones such as making someone believe they have lost a limb.
Illusionists try to unsettle their opponents in various ways; the moment their opponent becomes rattled and lets their emotions get the better of them, the illusionist has already won. According to Yang Jeonghakthe best way to break free from an illusion technique is to not get caught in an illusion technique to begin with by avoiding the gaze of the illusionist and keeping one's composure. However, because there is a fine distinction between imaginary pain and real physical pain, seizing the opportunity to break out of the illusion by noticing and using real physical pain comes down to the victim's willpower.
