    Fifth paragraph.

    Zhou Chu studied assiduously under Lu Yun's guidance. He also improved his morals, and his studious spirit won acclaim from everyone. A year later, all the local authorities in the area recommended him to be an official. After Soochow conquered the Tsin dynasty, he became a well-known chancellor of the Soochow dynasty.

    The action can describe by a single verb in Chinese, and I put it into google translate, and then it showed spring.
    I'll take care about it next time.

    2. Maybe it's too exaggeration. In some China stories, the arrow even can goes through stone. lol
    By the way, Zhou Chu was used his empty hands to beats the tiger in the latest version about the story. XD
