Nine Yang Divine Skill (九陽神功): A profound type of inner energy skill that has healing properties and promises superior inner energy. Zhang Wuji masters the skill after following instructions from the Nine Yang Manual and heals himself of the wounds inflicted by the Xuanming Elders, in addition to increasing his inner energy. The skill enhances his learning process and grants him access to mastering even more powerful skills which require a strong inner energy foundation. His success in mastering the 'Heaven and Earth Great Shift' is largely due to the inner energy foundation he built up earlier. The Wudang, Shaolin and Emei Sects have their less powerful and simplified versions of the skill after Zhang Sanfeng, Guo Xiang and Wuse memorised parts of the original Nine Yang Manual from Jueyuan. Zhang Wuji learns Wudang's simplified version of the skill from Zhang Sanfeng and developed a foundation for learning the full version later.
