Finally, the ancient saying has a beginning and an initial meaning. "Five" is connected with "Wu", and "Dragon Boat Festival" is "Five". According to the "Local Chronicles" of Zhou Chu in the Jin Dynasty: "The Midsummer Dragon Boat Festival is May 5th, and this day is important, the same as the summer solstice."

The Dragon Boat Festival has more than 20 different names. How many do you know? The Dragon Boat Festival is related to ancient sacrifices and evolved from the "dragon ascending to heaven" ceremony.

In the long history, the cultural connotation of the Dragon Boat Festival has been continuously enriched, and it has been sought after and loved by people. Folk customs such as dragon boat racing, eating rice dumplings, and hanging mugwort and calamus gradually formed. As the first Chinese festival to be included in the World Intangible Cultural Heritage List, the Dragon Boat Festival has had a wide impact around the world. From ancient poetry, there are many Dragon Boat Festival folklore works, where you can feel the beauty of traditional culture.

Liu Yuxi’s Observations on Dragon Boat Racing - "Surge" Dragon boat racing, as the first custom of the Dragon Boat Festival, is related to the memory of Qu Yuan. "Dragon boat racing" has become a custom during the Warring States Period. According to legend, Qu Yuan, a Chu doctor during the Warring States Period, was deposed and exiled. In mourning for the country's subjugation, he threw himself into the Miluo River and committed suicide. After learning that Qu Yuan had dived, local people organized a rescue and rowed into the vast Dongting Lake to search for Qu Yuan. In order to express their grief, people rowed canoes amidst the sound of drums, which later developed into the custom of dragon boat racing.

Wenxiu, a poet of the Tang Dynasty, pointed out the relationship between the Dragon Boat Festival and Qu Yuan in his "Dragon Boat Festival": "Who said the division of the Dragon Boat Festival? It is said to be Qu Yuan in ancient times. He can laugh at Chu River for emptying others, but he cannot directly wash away the grievances of ministers. The poem's The point of view is simple and profound - although later generations continue to pay tribute to Qu Yuan, the injustice that has sunk into the rivers cannot be redressed.

Liu Yuxi, a poet of the Tang Dynasty, is famous for his "Inscriptions on a Jianshi", which depicts the Dragon Boat Festival races The grand scene of dragon boats. Liu Yuxi wrote: "The Yuanjiang River flows flat in May, and the Yi people float colorful boats. The song about the year of Lingjun has passed away, but the sad song begins now. The sunbeams struck music, and the turbulence merged into a roar. Jiang Longyu's shoulder is in the middle of the river. During the Dragon Boat Festival, colorful boats are everywhere on the Yuanjiang River, with oars beating and drums rumbling, and the boats swinging like dragons' dorsal fins. Liu Yuxi also mentioned that since the elegy of Qu Yuan (Zi Lingjun), competition has become a custom.

Most people in the martial arts world have a simple and straightforward dream, that is, to become a martial arts master or even the best in the world. This is also the martial arts dream in the hearts of readers. Usually readers can experience this process from the perspective of the protagonist in the book. For example, the protagonists in Jin Yong's various works have similar experiences, from obscurity to occasional magic. Finally, in Liwan, Zhang Wuji, Duan Yu, Xu Zhu, Guo Jing, Yang Guo, etc. became famous. Although this is a cliché, it is always exciting.

(Duan Yu Stiles)

However, the experiences of the protagonists are because they carry their own "protagonist halo". Most people in the world of martial arts can't escape the top masters of the martial arts novices, that is, the disciples. However, these masters mentioned in this article are all very different. They all worshiped the master as a teacher, but wasted the opportunity to learn from the teacher instead of the art. In the world of martial arts, such a move seems silly.

1. Yue Laosan

Yue Laosan is a character that people love and hate. Of course, most readers love this character more, because what he shows in the book is his simple and straightforward side, and what he believes will not change. If he says he admires Duan Yu as a teacher, then he really admires him. However, there is a saying that Yue Laosan is designated as one of the four evil people, and he will naturally not do less, but he does not show this side too much in the book.

Having said that, anyone who has read the original work knows that Yue Laosan had to worship Duan Yu as his teacher. He didn't believe Duan Yu, but his mouth was unhappy. His every move proves that he has this master in his heart. In the end, Duan sacrificed himself for protection.

However, Yue Laosan is stupid, because since Duan Yu has taken advantage of him, he might as well let the master Duan Yu do the job, because he knows that Duan Yu has three great magical skills: Beiming Magic, Lingbo Weibu, Six Meridians Divine Sword. It is natural for a master to pass on his disciples. If Yue Laosan is determined to learn, I'm afraid Duan Yu will really teach him a trick and a half. Unfortunately, Yue Laosan's brain is too simple, and he will only protect his little master foolishly.

Second, Qiu Qianren

"The Legend of the Condor Heroes" mentioned that after the first sword debate at Mount Huashan, there was a recognized master of the "Five Ultimate Skills" in the martial arts. That is, the Southern Emperor, the Northern Beggar, the Eastern Evil, the Western Poison, and the Divine Power. In fact, there are not only five peerless masters in this era, at least Qiu Qianren is closely behind them.

As the leader of the Iron Palm Gang, Qiu Qianren, who floats on the water, is domineering in the martial arts world. Even the owner of Wujue can hardly say that he can eat him. However, it was not Wu Jue that defeated him in the end, but his inner guilt. Master Shangguan Jiannan passed the Iron Palm Gang to him, but he went astray and became a villain. Under Hong Qigong's scolding, he fully realized that he had worshiped Yiden and became a kind person.

Qiu Qianren comes from a family and is committed to public welfare. He is not pretending to be a teacher, Eden naturally knows this. In this case, if Qiu Qianren wanted Yi Deng to inherit his martial arts, Yi Deng would naturally not be ambiguous. If he had relied on his original ability and Yideng's Yiyang Finger, the First Heavenly Palace, and the Nine Yin Sutra, he would not be killed by Jinlun Dharma King in the future. It's a pity that he didn't ask his master for martial arts.

3. Su Xinghe

As the most mysterious genre in Jin Yong’s Encyclopedia, bards are also one of the most powerful genres. However, there is another big "most" in this school, which is the weirdest person. The founder, Xiaoyaozi, disappeared after practicing magical skills. He said he was looking for some magical books that did not grow in Spring Valley., the second generation and the third generation are all weird, entangled in emotional problems, and finally have internal strife, but the third generation is more exciting.

Su Xinghe is Wu Yazi’s eldest disciple, the eldest brother of the bard’s third generation disciple. This guy has pretty good talent. If he is determined to practice martial arts, inheriting Wu Yazi's magical power will not be a problem. The original work also emphasizes this point. Not only is he smart, but he is also handsome, which fully meets Wu Masako's "employment standards."

However, Su Xinghe has a wide range of hobbies and interests, so he cannot be locked up just for practicing martial arts. He prefers skills such as chess, calligraphy and painting, and medical astrology. Martial arts training is so deserted, but don't get me wrong. Su Xinghe's martial arts is actually pretty good, even second-rate. It's a pity that he could have achieved higher with his own talent.

4. The Eight Friends of Hangu

As the so-called "fish head begins to stink", in the powerful Minsk sect, practicing law is naturally a top priority. The third generation successor, Su Xinghe, has no intention of practicing martial arts as a disciple, so his disciples are naturally all kinds of weirdos.

Su Xinghe accepted eight apprentices. They are Qin Dian Kang Guangling, chess magician Fan Bailing, bookworm Gou Leiding, painter Wu Lingjun, doctor Xue Muhua, and craftsmen. Their respective interests and hobbies can be seen from their nicknames 10019/, Hua, and puppet Li, who is an opera fan. Besides martial arts, they have almost every exotic interest.

And they all meet the income standards of bards and are extremely talented by nature. Even if Xinghe didn't spread the demon, he got a trick from Shi, and he was afraid of being half dead and without any cliffs, but they also laughed at it. It was a pity that they also inherited Xinghe's temperament and never mentioned it at all.

It can be said that these eleven characters, Yue Laosan, Qiu Qianren, Su Xinghe and the Eight Friends of Hangu, are the stupidest people in Jin Yong's works. If someone worships a peerless master and appoints them as their teacher, they must pass on their skills. They really don't know how to cherish opportunities.
