Chaper 2 Section 2 Part 1
Moving the king to safety

In the process of a game of Xiangqi, more often than not, checks (not cheques...) will be delivered. Although there is much literature on showing examples, to my knowledge, only Master Shang has categorized and systematically studied what to do when faced with such a situation.
In section 2 of chapter 2, the entire section is devoted to what you should do when dealt a check and how best you can salvage. With the use of simple examples, the idea is presented clearly and concisely. This is one of the reasons why I chose to share Master Shang's books with all, the practicality and systematic study of such high quality is rare in Xiangqi literature. 
In the first portion, Master Shang explains what is the best time to move your king to safety, instead of capturing the opponent's piece, or placing another chess piece in the line of fire. Very practical.
