It was no time before he found himself on the streets again surviving day to day.

It was now 1869 in England there was a light rain that day and frigid. Sung could see some of the local thugs hanging around the street. In the alleyway, Sung was cold hungry, and drunk on that day. He heard a coach and horses get stopped by the Thugs. The coach was black and very nice to nice to be in this part of town. It was fast they pulled the driver off and beat him quickly. The passengers were pulled out. A man, a woman, and a child.

Sung looked and at first, did not care until the child screamed. Something stirred in his memories of his sister flashed in his mind. Sung grunted as he got up off the ground rain dripping off him. His ripped clothing was covered in the dirt with long matted hair. Sung half staggered forward towards the men. No one seemed to notice him at first.

The man reached to slap his hands away then suddenly Sung grabbed the man pulling him in and off balance there was a loud snap noise as Sung's foot strikes the man's knee the man screamed in pain as his leg bent the wrong way. Sung slipped behind the thug there was another loud snap and his head was almost pointing backward to his body. The limp body just dropped to the ground.

Favorite Sayings

“I can show you the path, but I cannot walk it for you.”

“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.”

“The primary thing when you take a sword in your hands is your intention to cut the enemy, whatever the means. Whenever you parry, hit, spring, strike or touch the enemy's cutting sword, you must cut the enemy in the same movement. It is essential to attain this. If you think only of hitting, springing, striking, or touching the enemy you will not be able actually to cut him.”

"Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's despair. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”
