After another day of cultivation, Qin Chuan watched as the elders left.
Today, his group of students had grown again.
Currently, there were more than 20 people who had managed to draw Qi into their bodies.
Qin Chuan discovered that every additional ten people would trigger an achievement.
With the Qi Gathering Pill that was rewarded for his achievements, Qin Chuan had successfully broken through and entered Foundation Establishment.
However, he did not feel happy when his cultivation level advanced.
Right now, his focus was entirely on his cultivation career.
He was confident that at this rate, he could soon create an era of cultivation.
At the bus stop.
Ma Dong immediately went to Qin Chuan after hanging up a call.
Qin Chuan asked, “Grandpa Ma, what’s the matter?”
“Sect Master, my granddaughter just called me.
“That baldy won’t sue us. She told us not to worry. ”
Qin Chuan laughed lightly, “Is that so? Then this matter is considered over. But, Grandpa Ma, don’t be so rash in the future. ”
Ma Dong said awkwardly, “I didn’t know that my kick could be so powerful. I nearly killed the man.”
Qin Chuan said earnestly, “Old Ma, we are cultivators. Our physical strength is naturally greater than that of ordinary people.
“So from now on, you must control your emotions.”
“Yes, yes! I won’t be so rash if that happens again.”
“Alright! Hurry go catch the bus!”
“Okay. See you tomorrow, Sect Master.”
After the conversation, Ma Dong returned to the crowd while Qin Chuan watched them leave.
This incident served as a wake-up call for Qin Chuan.
Cultivation could make a person stronger, but these elderly did not realize this.
Qin Chuan thought back to last night.
Just as the police officer said, if the bald man weren’t so tough, he would really have died.
So, he felt that he had to warn the elderly to control themselves well and not be rash. Otherwise, things could really go wrong.
In order to prevent any accidents from happening, Qin Chuan came up with a plan that would be used to train them on how to control their own strength.
He planned to start tomorrow.
Qin Chuan reached home. It only took him an hour to cover the journey that usually took more than an hour and a half.
There was a CD and a pair of chopsticks on the dining table.
On the windowsill, the blouse and pants that were drying were gone.
When he pushed open the bedroom door, there was still a hint of alcohol in the air.
Qin Chuan picked up a piece of paper from the bedside table. There were two words written at the bottom.
At the same time, he found a few hundred-dollar bills on the bedside table.
Qin Chuan picked up the money, deep in thought.
The next day, at the foot of Mountain Hu.
More than ten new faces appeared. They were still old men and old women.
As usual, Qin Chuan brought them to do the consecration, soak in the Spirit Spring, and taught them the breathing technique.
Then, he called Wang Zhixing and a few old men and women who had successfully drawn Qi into their bodies aside.
They looked confused.
Qin Chuan went straight to the point, “Everyone, all of you are considered cultivators now.
Since you’re cultivating, we don’t just need to perform breathing exercises. We also need to master other skills.
“Next, I will teach you how to control your strength.”
An old man asked, “Sect Master, will it be very tiring?”
Qin Chuan nodded his head, “Definitely, but it will be of great help to you guys.”
“Will it make me even younger?” an old lady asked.
“If it can’t, I’m better off continuing with my breathing exercises!”
Qin Chuan frowned as he thought to himself, “It seems like they’re only cultivating to become younger. How infuriating.”
At this moment, Wang Zhixing suddenly chimed in, “Everyone, don’t be so closed minded. Why don’t we listen to the Sect Master’s training method?”
With that, everyone immediately fell silent.
Wang Zhixing looked at Qin Chuan. “Sect Master, why don’t you tell us about it?”
Qin Chuan thought for a moment, then said, “The training method is actually very simple.
“It’s chopping bamboo!”
Everyone looked doubtful.
Wang Zhixing asked, “Sect Master, are you serious?”
“Of course I am.”
Since everyone was so puzzled, Qin Chuan went on, “Don’t belittle chopping. You might not even be able to chop down a single bamboo.”
Everyone was unconvinced.
An old man said, “I’ve lived in the mountains since I was young. I chopped wood every day. I can even cut down an old fir tree, let alone bamboo.”
Another old man added, “I also lived in the mountains. In the past, chopping trees and bamboo was all in a day’s work. I can cut bamboo with just my hands.”
Wang Zhixing also agreed, “Sect Master, even a teenager should be able to chop down some bamboo!”
“We may be getting older, but we’ve at least gotten younger now. But, you’re saying that we won’t be able to even chop down a single stick of bamboo. You’re clearly insulting us. ”
Qin Chuan hurriedly waved his hands and tried his best to explain, “No, I didn’t mean that. Please don’t misunderstand.”
“Sect Master, don’t try to explain yourself. Chopping bamboo, is it! We’ll show you how it’s done.”
As he spoke, everyone clamored for Qin Chuan to lead them to go chop the bamboo.
Just like that, everyone arrived at the bamboo forest.
The bamboo in the forest was not very thick. One stick of bamboo could be held within two hands.
When an old man saw this, he couldn’t help but laugh out loud. “With this bamboo, I just need one strike.”
Qin Chuan didn’t waste any time and gave him a brand new hatchet.
The old man took it.
“Don’t close your eyes; watch carefully!”
The old man raised the hatchet with one hand, took a deep breath, and then slashed down hard.
There was a loud bang.
The bamboo shook violently, and the bamboo leaves at the top rustled.
Everyone was shocked.
Even the old man himself was stunned.
“This…” His face was filled with disbelief, and his expression was extremely grim.
“That was a mistake.” The old man recovered from his surprise and immediately raised the hatchet again.
“Damn it, I don’t believe this.” The old man slashed at the bamboo again.
Another loud bang resounded.
However, the bamboo remained whole. There was only a shallow cut where the hatchet had hit.
The old man was dumbfounded.
Another old man snatched the hatchet and similarly chopped at bamboo with great force.
But, the bamboo remained upright.
The second old man was not convinced. He slashed at the bamboo many times.
But there was almost zero damage done to the bamboo.
“What kind of bamboo is this? Why is it so hard?”
Everyone was puzzled.
Qin Chuan was secretly delighted.
He had exchanged for this bamboo forest within the system.
Although it was of the lowest grade, the bamboo was not ordinary bamboo. Only cultivators at the Foundation Establishment and above could cause damage.
Now, the old men and women had to eat their words. They felt extremely embarrassed.
Qin Chuan let out a soft chuckle before picking up the hatchet.
As he brought the hatchet down, Qin Chuan swiftly cut the unbreakable bamboo. The cut was as sharp and smooth as a mirror.
Everyone’s eyes were wide.
Qin Chuan stood with his hands behind his back, looking like an expert.
He said calmly, “Sometimes, brute force is not the only solution.
“Archimedes once said, ‘Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the Earth.’
“Therefore, you should know how important it is to control your strength!”
Everyone was stunned.
“Sect Master, who is Archimedes?”
