Huang Shang was an imperial official serving under Emperor Huizong during the Song Dynasty. He is known as the creator of the Jiu Yin Zhen Jing.
Jiu Yin Zhen Jing: Volume OneEdit
Huang Shang was a high-ranking official that served Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty, who reigned between the era of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils and The Legend of the Condor Heroes. The emperor asked Huang Shang, a man who was equally gifted in both the martial and literary arts, to compile a book from thousands of loose scrolls and ancient scriptures containing information on everything from inner power, healing techniques, martial art classics and also Taoist philosophy. The compiled work became the first volume of Jiu Yin Zhen Jing.
After Huang Shang's task was completed, the Emperor ordered Huang Shang to lead an army to eradicate a group of anti-government rebels. This group, known as the Ming Cult, was based at a mountain fortress called Guangming Ding. The Song army proved inadequate to take the fortress, but Huang Shang fought the Ming Cult's most powerful fighters one-on-one and managed to defeat and kill nearly all of them until exhaustion finally forced him to retreat.
The Ming Cult, seeking revenge for the havoc that Huang Shang had unleashed upon them, sent their most powerful surviving martial artists to murdered Huang Shang's family. An enraged Huang Shang vowed to eradicate the Ming Cult.
Jiu Yin Zhen Jing: Volume TwoEdit
For the next 40 years, Huang Shang dedicated himself to finding ways capable of defeating all of the Ming Cult's kungfu. Additionally, because many of the Ming Cult members were affiliated with such established fighter groups as Shaolin, Kunlun, Gongdong, Gai Bang, the Duan Royal Family of Dali, etc. Huang Shang had to develop techniques capable of neutralizing the kungfu of these traditional sects as well.
Finally, Huang Shang succeeded in accomplishing this monumental task. Unfortunately, over the years, his enemies had all died of other causes. Confronted with this reality, all Huang Shang could do was make a second compilation based on his 40 years of study, which became the second volume of Jiu Yin Zhen Jing.
