Martial Arts of Beggars' Sect

 Martial Arts of Beggars' Sect

The most notable martial arts of the Beggars' Sect are the Eighteen Dragon-Subduing Palms (降龙十八掌) and Dog-Beating Staff Skill (打狗棒法). The chief is expected to have a profound mastery of both skills, especially the latter, which is only passed on from the chief tohis successor. No other member, not including the elders, know the Dog-Beating Staff Skill. However, the members know the Dog-Beating Formation (打狗阵), which is their battle formation. A typical member of the sect is usually armed with at least a wooden staff.

Since the members of the sect are not only limited to beggars, people from all walks of life join the sect as well, including scholars and military officers. As such, the martial arts of the sect are rather diverse as well, since some of the members know other forms ofmartial arts prior to joining the sect. For instance, Elder Wu Changfeng from Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils uses a personalised form of saber movement while Elder Chen Guyan carries a sack filled with poisonous creatures and he uses them against his enemies. Thus, themartial arts of the Beggars' Sect are very diversified due to the nature and origin of the members, who come from all walks of life.
