Emei History[edit | edit source]
Mount Emei is one of the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains of China, blessed with four great sites: Clouds Sea, Sunrise, Buddhist Halo,and Saint Lamps. The central clustering ridges and peaks, wreathed with thin mist, green jade, spurting waterfalls, twittering birds, and fragrant flowers, makes Mount Emei a great place for relaxation and Buddhist meditation. In Age of Wushu, the location of Emei School is hidden behind trees, making it a quiet and refined place, fitting with the Emei culture.
The origins of Emei's Martial Arts come from its founder Guo Xiang. Even though Emei is a female-only School, they are just as righteous and chivalrous as their Shaolin counterparts. Guo Xiang supposedly inherited the Heaven Reliant Sword that contained sacred Martial Arts secrets. This made the Emei even more famous, equivalent even to Shaolin and Wudang. Emei's martial arts range from powerful inner energy skills to the use of bladed weapons and unarmed combat. The main weapon used by Emei disciples is the sword. They use needles and hairpins as projectile weapons to throw at enemies periodically as well. Like Wudang, Emei's skills are dual-natured, having elements of "roughness" and "softness", "long-range" and "short-range" attacks in the same style of fighting. They rotate between deceptive and direct attacks and can be used effectively by women to overcome opponents who are physically stronger than them. Some movements in Emei's swordplay are feminine in nature and are named after ancient Chinese beauties and phrases used to describe beauty.
