ple had the privilege of being able to cultivate and they were rare.
In modern times, the Federation government tried its best to get everyone to cultivate to fight those fearsome monsters.

Just as Coach Qin Wu said, talent was not the sole factor in cultivation.
The right environment, partners, methods, and money were required.
None of them should be lacking.
The process of practicing martial arts was especially harmful to one’s body.
If one did not replenish what had been exhausted, it was normal for one to die when they were still strong at 30 or 40 years old.
The better the fighter, the faster they would expire.

“All of you must understand, the source of the so-called True Energy is actually your own bioenergy.
The higher the level of cultivation your body achieves, the more True Energy will be produced.
Even if you guys have the opportunity to reach a higher level, the cultivation of the body is still the source!” Qin Wu stood with his hands behind his back, straight as a rifle, like he was going to pierce the sky.
“In ‘Poem of Striking the Hexagram Lines’ written by the cultivation master, Lu the Progenitor, during the feudal period, he mentioned that the first problem of cultivation is only developing one’s mind instead of one’s life.
It means that it’s wrong to cultivate one’s dao instead of cultivating one’s body.
One should cultivate both wisdom and life!”

Chu Yunfan nodded and recalled the cultivation knowledge that he learned at school before.
The path of cultivation was long.
Since the Ancient Zenith civilization was discovered, those cultivators went through years of discovery and categorized all stages of cultivation.
The first one would be the Physical Stage.

The Physical Stage was the mandatory path when one journeyed into Martial Dao.
Getting to the peak of Martial Dao was like crossing an endless ocean and one’s physical body was the boat.
The more powerful one’s physique, the higher the chances of getting to the other side.

Therefore, training one’s physical body was the foundation of Martial Dao.
That was why it was called the Physical Stage.

In turn, the Physical Stage was divided into nine minor stages or tiers – Muscle Training, Bone Strengthening, Skin Refinement, Tendon Tuning, Inner Strengthening, Joint Popping, Blood Renewal, Internal Observation, and Qi Nourishment.

One could only claim to have a foundation built after cultivating the Physical Stage to perfection.
As the body needed to absorb more True Energy for inner circulation, a more powerful physique was required.

After one got to the ninth tier of the Physical Stage, Qi Nourishment, and then absorbed a mouthful of True Energy, a qi sea would be activated in their dantian.
Their qi sea would allow them to absorb endless True Energy.
This was known as the Qi Sea Stage.

After the Qi Sea Stage came the Acquired Stage, the Innate Stage, and more, but Chu Yunfan did not know much about them.
After all, many teachers at the No.
13 High School were only at the Qi Sea Stage.
There were only a few Innate Stage powerhouses in all of Donghua City.

“I know that most of you will be taking the year-end exam in a month, and you guys probably won’t be able to get into the martial arts stream but the liberal arts stream.
I want all of you to understand that successful cultivation aside, all of you will have to depend on your personal cultivation to be able to live a long healthy life in the future!” Qin Wu scanned everyone in class as he proceeded.
“During the Common Era, people only lived for a few decades on average.
Nobody got to 100.
Why was that? It was because their bodies were weak, and they were in an unhealthy state for a long time.
What else would they expect? On the other hand, everyone in the modern Kunlun Era is a cultivator.
The average lifespan has surpassed 100 years, and some can even live to 120.
That’s the advantage of practicing martial arts!”

Hearing Qin Wu mention the martial arts stream and liberal arts stream, Chu Yunfan could not help but turn rather gloomy.

Although everyone wanted to cultivate, there were levels to human capability.
According to No.
13 High School’s standards, those who reached Tier-7 Physical Stage before taking the Year 3 exam had great potential and would be put into the martial arts stream.
Meanwhile, those of ordinary ability would be placed in the liberal arts stream.

Before the stream division, the curriculum included half liberal arts and half martial arts.
It was rather balanced, but it would change as soon as they went into separate streams.

As the name suggested, those who went into the martial arts stream would have an appropriate reduction in lessons about the liberal arts and would spend more time cultivating.

Meanwhile, though the students in the liberal arts stream would not stop cultivating entirely, their cultivation time would be restricted.
They would be preoccupied with studying the liberal arts in order to get into a university in the future.
After that, they would work nine-to-five jobs just like common folk.

As passionate young people, most of them desired to be capable martial artists.
Beyond the magnificent abilities and stature they could gain, it was easier for martial artists to make a living compared to liberal arts graduates destined to work at fixed-income jobs.
Whether by joining the government departments, the military, or becoming some company’s monster-killing mercenary, the graduates from the martial arts stream would have higher incomes.

Furthermore, the outstanding ones could go to the Kunlun Realm to study at one of the nine Martial Art Saint Lands, becoming supreme powerhouses whose names would be renowned throughout the world.

However, reality was cruel, so not everyone had the gift for cultivation.
Most people’s talents were mundane, and it was difficult for them to pick it up.
Only students that showed the appropriate aptitude would be chosen to be trained properly in the martial arts stream.

Meanwhile, Chu Yunfan was a young man with little to show.
He had only reached Tier-5 Physical Stage during his senior year.
Never mind comparing him to those who could get into the martial arts stream, he was considered ordinary even among those fated to be placed in the liberal arts stream.

“Alright, that’s all for today’s class.
It’s best that you guys don’t skip tomorrow’s lesson, as I’ll be demonstrating a martial skill for real combat.
If you miss it, I won’t be teaching it again.
Understood?” Qin Wu asked all the students while looking at them.

“Understood!”

Their eyes lit up as they replied.
