“The daxia has passed away, but his followers will follow his path to keep and spread the daxia spirit from place to place.”
Chinese people flooded the internet to mourn Chinese martial arts novelist Louis Cha, after the 94-year-old passed away on October 30 in Hong Kong. The writer of a series of Chinese martial arts masterpieces, Cha was considered a“daxia” – a swordsman known for helping people find justice – by many Chinese people, especially those who were born and grew up in the 1980s and 1990s when Cha's novels were very popular. Many netizens said it was Cha's novels that rooted the concept of justice in their hearts and that urged them to keep pursing their dreams, just as a daxia keeps pursuing justice. Alibaba founder Jack Ma was one of the people who grew up with Cha's works. Following his death, he posted a long eulogy for the great master, stating that he would not have founded Alibaba if it weren't for Cha's influence.
