Chaper 2 Section 2 Part 3
Killing the piece delivering the check

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 third portion, Master Shang shows what you should take note off when killing the opponent's piece delivering the check. Interesting and practical.
