  • High Speed Rotating Dislocator: By grabbing hold of one's arm and quickly twisting his body around it, the user has the ability to dislocate it.


  • Iron Body Technique (Cheol-Dong-Gong): When using this technique the body becomes as "hard as forged steel". However, hardening the body also slows down the user's movements. In addition, although the users body is hard as steel, the eyes are not, thus they are the weak point of the user.
  • Inner Energy Healing: The user transfers his/her own Ki to another person in order to enhance the healing of that person.[8]

The user can also promote a form of internal healing by massaging the body of another and absorbing their internal energy, if he/she reaches a high level of mastery.

Further explanation has not been given.


  • Outer Body Training Method (Hyun Hwan Shim Yun Gong): Practiced in the Artist's Society. The basis for this technique is meditation. The technique then involves creating a mental image of ones own body in the second phase. The user imagines Ki flowing through this body and fights with previous opponents in this deep mental meditation in order to train. According to Sera Kang it normally takes around ten years to reach the level of meditation. Despite that Shi-Woon Yi reached the second stage of meditation training within days.[13]

It is one of the techniques that Chun-Woo Han took in the Shinmujengpe (Martial Arts Championship) in order to become the Nine Arts Dragon. It refers to a kick that creates a whirlwind kind of effect as it sends the opponent flying.[9]


  • Silver Dragon Strike: A strike with throwing characteristics that sends the opponents flying upwards.[17]
  • Soul-Crushing Strike: An Inner Power technique in which the practitioner circulates Ki through his body, and releases it through his fist at the same time he extends his hand. Requires large reserves of Ki for extended use and the ability to synchronize the release of Ki with the movement of the body. In a translation error it is called Lightning Strike.
    • Lightning Strike: It is the variation of Soul-Crushing Strike that is executed without the use of Ki.
    • Pseudo Soul-Crushing Strike: It is a technique very similar to the Soul-Crushing Strike but it is an imitation used by the S.U.C. to fool the public of the Murim.

  • Strong Metal Hand: A technique in which a practitioner trains his hands and fingers to be able to rip flesh, bones and even steel. The technique has ten ranks, and it takes years of training to master the necessary hardening. One can still temporarily use the technique at rank ten without hardening, but only for a few minutes after which the hand would be left crippled.

  • Thousand Flower Strike: The user uses a finger technique to attack an opponent with great speed from multiple directions rapidly. This technique is a pressure-point attack that leaves the opponent defeated on the floor as his body is filled with pain so great that it is considered feeling the pain of death without dying.
  • Three-Walled Trap Formation (Sam-Byuk Gyul-Geum): Not exactly a technique but a number of techniques combined in a strategic formation. It is one of the strategic deployment skills of the Heavenly Way School that are used for either offence or defence. Three martial artists drive their target in the center of a triangle they form between them. This formation is of offensive nature.
