Urban Martial Arts System - Chapter 1
“Brother, why are you still sleeping? Get up! Don’t be late today.” A pair of soft hands harshly tapped Zhou Ping’s face.
“Ah! Let me sleep a little longer.” Zhou Ping looked at his sister, who was beside him and was pinching his cheek, then closed his eyes.
“Today is the day of the graduation test. If you don’t get up, you will be late,” Rounen shouted into Zhou Ping’s ear.
“Well, I’m not afraid. I’ll get up soon. If I don’t go, will the school fail me?” It was so noisy that he finally agreed to get up.
“With our father’s power, how can a mere martial arts high school make us lose face?” Zhou Ping complained as he slowly washed up and dressed up.
“Brother, you can say that you are the last one in every exam,” his younger sister punched his waist as she scolded him.
“What can I do? I’m born with poor aptitude. I am also very desperate! If the test is Chinese, mathematics, or something, why will I be afraid? But who knows how special the exam is?” Zhou Ping threw a towel into the sink.
Zhou Ping was a nobody, and he was very lucky to reach the top. Originally, Zhou Ping thought that with his identity and resources, how could he make a difference? As soon as he realized this, Zhou Ping was dumbfounded.
The technology of this world was not inferior to his original world. In fact, some places actually surpassed it. Entertainment, culture, and other aspects of development were booming. What’s more, martial arts and Taoism were respected in this world.
Originally, there were no martial arts in the world. Only in the last century did the famous archaeologist Nan Sanshu discover a large number of martial arts secrets in an ancient tomb. In the beginning, no one took it seriously. After all, would anybody still practice the 18 Dragon Subduing Palms? As a result, someone actually developed eighteen dragon palms.
This world has caused a sensation. This is a mysterious system! Internal strength was too important to ordinary people. Aside from other things, just prolonging lifespan had attracted countless people.
According to these martial arts secret books, you could also enhance your physical fitness and produce all kinds of incredible abilities. As a result, various organizations had begun to study and develop these martial art secrets.
After practicing the secret script and having a longer life span and stronger body, many of the human limits were broken. The development of internal force made the practitioners almost like Superman in movies. However, not everyone was suitable for practicing martial arts. Therefore, whether the martial arts were prosperous or not and the number of martial arts experts became a country’s display of strength.
Countries began to vigorously promote martial arts, hoping to increase their own masters. After nearly a hundred years, martial arts had completely replaced the status of other disciplines and become the most important discipline.
Zhou Ping was about to take the graduation examination of Wudao High School. For many people, if they couldn’t pass the graduation examination, they couldn’t continue doing martial arts. They could only learn other subjects. But for a wealthy and young man like Zhou Ping, no matter how bad his grades and qualifications were, there was no need to be afraid of failing to graduate.
He took a cup of milk, grabbed two pieces of bread, and put it into his mouth. “Rich and young, shouldn’t it be a group of servants, wives, and concubines? Why don’t I even have a servant to serve me?” With a sigh, Zhou Ping unhappily sat down.
“Enjoyment is the natural enemy of martial arts. You can’t enjoy it unless you are in a state of mind where you can’t be moved by foreign objects. That will make your martial arts degenerate.” His sister rolled her eyes and ate breakfast seriously. The simplest slice of bread also gave her an elegant feeling.
“It’s better to enjoy more of my aptitude.” Zhou Ping also rolled his eyes.
“I don’t care about you.” His sister finished her breakfast and got up to leave.
“I’m going to school.” After saying goodbye to Zhou Ping, his sister put on her shoes and opened the door. “Brother, be sure to come.” The younger sister, who was about to open the door, suddenly turned around, then quickly opened the door and went out.
“Ha? I have the qualifications, is there a difference between coming and not coming?” Zhou Ping was shocked, feeling a little warm.
“Ding… the system is activated.” A voice suddenly rang in his mind.
“System?” Zhou Ping was stunned, then his face became excited.
“This system is called ‘Martial Arts Evolutionary System’. It is detected that the host has the secret book ‘Iron Shirt (enhanced version)’. Do you want to optimize it?”
“Eh?” Zhou Ping heard the system in his mind and froze for a moment. “Other systems are always wordy when they come out. My system is quite simple.”
“Yes.” Zhou Ping ordered curiously.
“Optimization initiated… Optimization ends.” Two consecutive prompts sounded, with almost no gap in between.
“So fast?” Zhou Ping doubted.
“As a result, the Iron Shirt (enhanced version) is optimized to ‘God-level Iron Shirt.’”
The prompt ended, and a stream of information rushed into Zhou Ping’s mind.
“Holy cow! That’s amazing.” Zhou Ping carefully read the skill that suddenly came into his mind, and he couldn’t help a shout in delight.
“My aptitude is too bad, I can’t sense qi, so I can only practice external skills. The original ‘Iron Shirt (Enhanced Version),’ regardless of the name, is actually very good for beginners in external skills. It’s a top-notch technique, but compared with the optimized system of ‘God-level Iron shirt,’ it is simply trash.”
“Practiced into ‘God-level Iron Shirt,’ with infinite strength, copper skin and iron bones. Not only is it very strong against strikes, but also has strong recovery ability, and is immune to all acupoints. More importantly…” Zhou Ping’s eyes suddenly became serious. “Even the function of some places can be enhanced, whether it is hardness or holding power. Hehehe… ”
After reading the skill carefully, the book was divided into five layers. However, after watching the skill, Zhou Ping became uninterested.
“Although this technique is super strong and is worthy of the word God level, it is not useful. I have practiced “Iron Shirt (Enhanced Version)” for a full ten years, but I have only reached the first level. Progress, you just gave me a great cheat. It’s useless!”
Sitting depressed, Zhou Ping was a little down.
“Ding! Does the host want to use the promotion value to learn the exercises?”
