Re: Baseline skillset

[quote=... the 2 basic criteria I've mentioned in a number of earlier posts can lead to some odd skills like:

Greatly enhanced personal strength, when done correctly and following a certain path;

The ability to put 2 fingers on top of a polished knife blade and lift up the knife;

Extraordinarily powerful "fa jin" and a number of tangents to that skill;

Difficult-to-puncture skin;

The ability to manipulate pressure pulses within the body;

And so on. I can think of several more, but that's enough.


Hmmm, nice. But I am reminded of the punch line to an old Zen story:
"I don't know about your old fox, but my master's miracle is that when he's hungry he eats, and when he's tired he sleeps."
