Why are people thinking about having Shioon using the acupuncture attack? All of Shioon's attacks are explosive, powerful, and forceful connections.
Good chapter I hope shiwoon uses bot next chapter I want to see how it will fare vs someone like the old guy. Lets see was glasses think of that should be good.
A few comments:
1. My guess is that Ghost Hands is using some sort of ki disruption/absorption technique whenever he's catching the attacks with one finger, rendering pure ki attacks pretty much useless if he is in range to touch Shioon (unless he doesn't see them coming, like the one that knocked him into the air). If he had taken the 3 steps back before attempting his Chaotic Heavens Destruction Strike, it might have actually gone off.
2. The fact Shioon can't follow Ghost Hands movement is a bit suspicious. Either the doctor is moving so fast that Shioon can't even get a glimpse of the foot movement (which isn't that likely given that he just went through full body rebirth), or (what I think is happening) is that the last chapter he's using something like Hwan ( http://www.mangahere.com/manga/the_b...06/c039/8.html ) to not be where Shioon thinks he is.
So, if Shioon is going to make a good showing of this, I think he's going to have to stop using straightforward ki attacks and start doing something fancier (like using Hwan himself), or start doing some throws like the one he did on Lone Wolf (which he might be able to do now that the doctor is finally attacking him back).
The technique shiwoon used to claw his arm looks similar to the one unwol used to take claw his own heart. I guess its a black origin school technique we don't know of yet.
I think Shioon has no choice but to endure and wait for elder kwon's rescue, because let's face it, the old man is One of the 10 Masters of the Murim.
At least Shioon i showing the his greatest trait: Tenacity, and I can only think on two Manga characters that are more tenacious, Radamanthys from Saint Seiya The Lost Canvas, and Guts from Berserk.
I think the Doc will realize that Shioon is serious and determine that he must render Shioon unconscious. The problem for the Doc is that Shioon has proven in the past to push forward even while unconscious.
An interesting technique, although Shioon broke it by injuring himself. Too many wasted pages in this chapter, to be honest.
I don't want Shioon to learn the acupuncture technique but the Ghost doc foot technique. It would be awesome if he learned the doc foot technique in this fight in preparation on his training with elder Kwoon.
Shioon has been exposed to acupuncture several times before, perhaps most strongly against Smiling Blade. He has never shown in any interest in learning it, so why would he suddenly want to learn it now?
good chapter it is still shi-woon's fight to win
i think the important development here is when he says that there is going to be a victory or death i think shi-woon is ready to be more ruthless to show that his clan is not weak

I think Shioon is going to land a hit on the doctor in the upcoming chapters, even though his feint didn't work this chapter. Shioon will find a way to hit the doctor and surprise him even more.
I just hope this doesnt take 10 chaps to wrap up. I think it was obvious that shiwoon didnt blow him out rather it was a last min eye candy cliff hanger i mean This guy is a GM.
Any way i am getting tired of this island already i hope shiwoon is taken by sunwoo and then made to reast and he recollects all that he learned including this acupuncture tech from the mad doc and thendevice a plan to pay SUC back for real
