The QuanZhen Sect martial art is based on characters "empty" (Gong) and "soft (Ruo). It was called so because lacking accomplishment does not necessarily mean weak, lacking fullness does not necessarily mean empty.
The Seven Masters of QuanZhen
The Seven Masters of QuanZhen were the second generation students of Central Divinity Wang ChongYang. The seven masters all had a strong internal power base that was above average during their era. This was due to the QuanZhen Internal Cultivation techniques, which had no limits and would even increase during sleep. The seven masters knew most of the QuanZhen arts such as the QuanZhen palm styles and sword techniques. Their best skill however was The Big Dipper Formation. When used by the seven masters, the formation was powerful enough to eventually subdue even a Great-level fighter.
Qiu ChuJi - Eternal Spring. He's the 4th. He has a red mole on his left cheek.
Ma Yu - Scarlet Sun. He's the first disciple of Wang ChongYang.
Tan ChuDuan - Eternal Truth. He's the 2nd disciple. He has a muscular face, thick eyebrows, and big eyes. His body looked big and sturdy. Before he bowed to be a Taoist priest, he was a blacksmith in ShanDong. Tan ChuDuan was killed by Ouyang Feng's sneak attack during the clash with Huang YaoShi at Ox Village.
Liu ChuXuan - Eternal Life. He's the 3rd ranked. He's thin and small and his facial appearance looked like a monkey.
Wang ChuYi - Jade Sun. He's the 5th disciple. Once on a bet with Qiu ChuJi, he stood close to an abyss on one foot in a violent wind. The large crowd in Shandong, Hebei province who witnessed the feat gave him a nickname Foot of Iron. He lived as reclusive in an underground cave for 9 years practicing martial art.
Hao DaTong - Infinite Peace. He's number 6. He's big and tall and his appearance looked like that of government official. Prior to becoming a Taoist priest, he was a head of ShanDong's NingHai sub-prefecture's wealthy family. Hao was highly educated and managed to sell his divination skill. When he bowed to Wang ChongYang at Smoky Red Cloud Cave to become a priest, Wang ChongYang took out his own robe and cut the sleeves to give it to Hao DaTong. The word "Xiu" (sleeve) was similar to the word "Shou" (to teach/to instruct/to award/to give); the meaning was, no matter how much the master gives instructions, there will always be more to learn; whether the disciple enlightened or not, it depends on his own comprehension. He remembered his Master's kindness very well, so afterwards he always wore the half-sleeved Taoist robe.
Sun Bu'Er - Sage of Tranquility. She's disciple number 7 and she was Ma Yu's wife prior joining the Sect. When Wang ChongYang took Sun Bu'Er as his disciple, he drew a skull and gave it to her. His meaning was that somebody's life was short, that very quick death will come, and the person would change into a skull; so she must cultivate the true and admired "way" ('Dao' of the Taoist means 'the way'). In memory of her deceased master, Sun Bu'Er embroidered this skull on her robe.
Chen YaoJia - She's the student of Sun Bu'Er. She was kidnapped by Ouyang Ke and rescued by Guo Jing, Huang Rong, Hong QiGong and the Beggar Clan.
