Chapter 108 – Vacuum Jolt

Tang Tian did not understand fatigue while training.
He had forgotten to monitor the training of other people, and forgot that this was Qian Hui’s house, he only had his own martial techniques in his eyes, and only his own fist.
Fifth level True power with rank four fist arts. He experienced a place he has never been before. This difference in detail, Tang Tian only found this out today.
The fifth level True Power surged, and no matter if it were the Heavenly Dragon Energy or the Crane Energy, it was as if Tang Tian’s wishes came true, the energy accumulated inside the True Power was agitated and released, its eruption was astonishing.
Upon reaching the fifth level of True Power, the rise was comprehensive, regardless of the degree of strength, or the exquisiteness, compared to the fourth level of True Power, everything took a quantitative leap. All the minute details and feel of the [Concussion Punch], under the power of the fifth level True Power, became even more distinct and clear.
Tang Tian already had exceptionally sharp intuition, as he continued training his fists. All of the difficult details that were initially hard to grasp, gradually surfaced.
The Concussion Punch in Tang Tian’s hands began to slowly transform.
The wind from the fists gradually disappeared.
In the past, whenever Tang Tian punched out a Concussion Punch, it would bring about countless fragmented ripples. All these fine ripples were his True Power causing the air around his fist to vibrate, and these ripples contained strong fatal power, and could easily break down rocks.
However, currently, Tang Tian’s Concussion Punch’s concussive ripples were becoming lesser and lesser, as the wind of the fists rapidly disappeared. Tang Tian’s Concussion Punch, became more and more different from the prior practitioners who showed devastating power, and it looked like an ordinary punch. But truthfully, it meant that Tang Tian’s energy, was being controlled so reserved and focusedly, the energy was not in the least bit leaking out.
People who were personally witnessing the transformation, like Shangguan Zhu and the rest, felt their hearts shivering. Although the Shangguan Clan had been declining the past few years, the tradition was still there, and although the disciples had weak strength, they still had good eyesight.
The energy of the punch became more reserved and focused, and the power became even stronger.
Everyone understood the underlying reasoning, but very few people could actually achieve it. The current age’s martial techniques were all passed down by spirit cards, easy to learn, but difficult to grab the essence. Gold cards were extremely costly, and not everyone could buy one. While the silver cards and bronze cards, the experience accumulated was not complete. Also, the experience gain varies person to person, it may suit him but not suit you, like the martial artist and the spirit general were not compatible, which happens frequently.
To explain what training is, it is a constant polishing art, and the more the profound it is, the longer the duration required.
The current, common way of thoughts was, when comparing of a rankings and levels, the higher level would win against the lower level. Everyone’s goal was to rush to achieve a higher level of realm. Regarding martial techniques, very few people would constantly polish themselves, to go and train to perfection, as they believed that no matter how perfect the low rank martial techniques were trained till, they would not be able to defeat the higher rank martial techniques’ power.
Classification of rankings was everything, that was everyone’s way of thinking, and before this, Shangguan Wei and the rest also thought the same thing.
Until Tang Tian appeared. He was clearly just at the fifth level, but he was able to display battle power and strength far exceeding the fifth level. However, before today, many of them believed that the reason son-in-law was so strong, was due to him borrowing power from his armor. But they soon realised, as they watched him perform the perfect Concussion Punch, that the son-in-law actually spent so much time practising, and continued training.
To have the time, to train more in True Power, the higher ranked martial techniques were then considered the way of the king.
When the wind from Tang Tian’s fists disappeared, everyone was extremely shocked. Every fist that he produced, there was clearly not a single trace of the undulations, but it was filled with an even more indescribable danger, and everyone’s senses, were involuntarily attracted by Tang Tian’s fists, they could not look away, as if his fists contained some type of charming power.
They all stood there and watched, completely forgetting about their training. The entire training ground, not knowing when, had become completely silent.
Only Tang Tian was there throwing out punch after punch, forgetting about everything else.
It was like the True Power in his body was boiling, Tang Tian felt extremely carefree and happy, punch after punch, to do as he pleased, every tiny bit of subtle feeling was like the flow of the water, smoothening his heart, it was beautiful.
That is the vibration…
It seemed like there was a silent sorrow, floating in his heart.
It was like the quilt of the window being slowly pierced through, the beautiful outdoor light and wind from outside the window, in an instant filling the entire room.
A feeling hard to describe rose in Tang Tian’s heart.
He suddenly hissed, his True Power flared up, a crane cry sounded out in his heart, followed by a dragon’s roar, his flaring True Power surged with a bang. Tang Tian did not think, and released a punch!
A soundless, formless, and empty punch.
On his fist, a coconut sized transparent white ball of light suddenly appeared.
The light ball was maintained for only a second, and then it started crumbling, the sonic boom resonating in the entire field.
The air in the entire training ground, as if it were being controlled by a formless big hand, suddenly rushed to the light ball which burst and exploded.
Boundless energy exploded out, Tang Tian’s figure was as imposing as a mountain, and did not move an inch.
His eyes had a look of pensiveness.
Ah Mo Li journeyed through, and upon finding the Shangguan Clan, he showed his identity. Luckily, the person to receive him was Uncle Qian, and he had heard of a few youngsters that actually came from the Star Wind City, and came to look for Young Master Ah Tian, and he immediately brought them in.
As they rushed to the training field, they were just in time to see the transparent ball of light explode by Tang Tian.
Everyone’s face changed, they stopped in their footsteps, as if they were somehow forced to be set there.
That… that was…vacuum!
How is that possible…
That fist…actually shook the air until it instantly disappeared, and formed a vacuum ball…
[Concussion Punch] was clearly just a rank four martial technique….clearly just a rank four martial technique!
They had heard of it before. When the Concussion Punch was trained to the pinnacle, it could crumble the air and form a localized vacuum. This was the famous [Vacuum Jolt].
[Vacuum Jolt] was just a legend, they had never seen anyone who mastered it. But today, right in front of their eyes, such a strong characteristic of an attack and shocking strength. Even though they all had strong and firm minds, in this period of time, all of their minds were blank.
No one could have thought that it was Ah Mo Li who was the first to regain his senses, and he shook his head and said: “I’m not fighting, I’m not fighting! What is there to fight from this? Psychotic Tang is too insane! Will he die from not being enlightened on killing techniques…”
The rest of them, upon hearing this, managed to wake up.
Just as Tang Tian also awoke from his state of forgetting everything else, he heard Ah Mo Li’s voice. Looking distracted, he turned his head to look and saw Ah Mo LI and the rest, and he was ecstatic.
Tang Tian shouted loudly. With a few steps, he appeared in front of everybody else.
They only saw a blur, and Tang Tian was already rushing to their front, Han Bing Ning and the rest’s hearts uniformly shivered.
All of them had a shocked look on their faces, and only Ah Mo Li was laughing. He stepped forward, and brought Tang Tian into a bear hug, and said loudly: “Fundamental Tang, long time no see! Ah ya, now you have really given me a shock. You’re becoming even more powerful already. Initially, I wanted to have a bout with you, but after seeing your fist, I have no interest in it anymore. Young man, saving the world, it’s in your hands now…”
Hearing Ah Mo Li’s chatter, Tang Tian’s heart was filled with a weird warmth. Ah Mo Li’s nature was tolerant, simple and honest, and he enjoyed chattering quite a bit.
“Mosquito cow, you’re still so talkative!”
Both of them loosened up, and Tang Tian immediately had a smile on his face.
“Ai ya, Fundamental Tang, you have to understand, to a lively martial young man who has been restrained for so long, they all have no meaning. One ten thousand year iceberg, another one is sinister, and the other one is actually a vegetarian! You understand the world, how could there still be living beings that only eats veggies? And this living being, is actually Big Brother Liang Qiu, Oh god, my idol was broken like that. Of course, you can relax, all of this will not stop this lively martial young man from creating his own Martial Dao’s strong and firm heart…”
Ah Mo Li kept jabbering on and on, and caused the rest to be pissed off.
Han Bing Ning touched her sword hilt, frowned, with a cold air, she asked: “You’re saying I am the ten thousand year iceberg?”
Ah Mo Li instantly kept his mouth shut.
Liang Qiu smiled, as he was engrossed and asked: “Tang Tian, just now the move you did, was it the Vacuum Jolt?”
Tang Tian nodded: “Yea, I just managed to be enlightened on it.”
Admiration flashed past Liang Qiu’s eyes as he complimented: “As expected of Fundamental Tag! Vacuum Jolt, hailed as the Concussion Punch Killing technique, has a very strong attacking power. You have managed to be enlightened on it, when you reach the sixth level, and train the [Vacuum Fist], it will definitely be half the work and twice the effect.”
Tang Tian knew that Liang Qiu was teaching him, and he appreciated it and thanked him: “Thank You Big Bro Liang Qiu!”
“Humph, but it is just Vacuum Jolt, Young man Tang, you have already entered the fifth level, why do you still train in rank four fist arts?” Sima Xiang Shan said, his triangular eyes looked like they were snake eyes, flickering with an ominous glint.
Tang Tian said as a matter of factly: “I plan to have all the martial techniques that I know, trained to perfection, as it’s best to be enlightened on all their killing techniques.”
Everyone was dumbstruck.
If these words were said by someone else, they would definitely pick up a brick and break open the person’s head, and see if there was any paste inside. But coming from Tang Tian, they did not know what to say.
Unless, this psychotic person, had always been this perverted.
“As expected of Fundamental Tang!” Ah Mo Li clapped his hands, his eyes glowing brightly. He excitedly said: “Only a godlike young man can have this kind of bravery! Lively martial young man has to learn from godlike young man. Ao ao ao, thinking about it makes me so excited! This world is filled with so much fighting spirit…..”
Tang Tian looked confused and asked: “Lively martial young man, you gave yourself that name?”
Ah Mo Li became proud looking: “Ha ha, of course, such a charismatic name, only lively martial young man filled with passion can think of such a name…”
Tang Tian retracted his gaze, as he looked at the rest in sympathy: “This brat followed you all, for all of you not to have him killed, you are all too kind.”
“Tang Tian, how are you at the outer barracks?” Han Bing Ning suddenly raised her head and asked.
Tang Tian forced a bitter smile, and told them about everything that had happened to him. Other than killing Kong You Lin, he told them about joining Jing Hao’s group, otherwise he did not hide anything.
All of them were astounded, they originally had thought that Tang Tian had definitely caught Kong You Lin’s eyes, they did not expect him to be thrown aside.
“I, Ah Mo Li, want to join your group!” Ah Mo Li raised his hand.
[Robin: As in the Honorable Martial Group]
Surprisingly, Han Bing Ning also suddenly said coldly: “I will join too!”
Ah Mo Li was a stubborn fellow, Tang Tian knew that all along, but for Han Bing Ning to actually join in on the fun, Tang Tian was actually surprised.
Liang Qiu said deeply: “Since we all came from Star Wind City, to be in the same power group, we can still take care of each other.”
The three of them turned their gaze to Sima Xiang Shan.
Sima Xiang Shan pushed his hand out: “I’m fine with anything.”
Tang Tian’s heart felt warm, but he knew that it would not be so easy, and he thought and said: “You all don’t be so in a rush, don’t leak out this news, I will go ask Big Brother Jing Hao first.”
