Martial skills are the techniques used by martial cultivators. The skills have various effects when used. Regular martial skills are ranked 1 through 9. Most martial skills could condense spiritual energy to an object outside of one’s body, but to change spiritual energy into a substance such as lightning and to approach the original form in terms of appearance and essence, only rank 5 martial skills could do that. Thus from rank five on wards it become even more difficult to cultivate.
Higher skills than rank 9 take on a whole new ranking system. The most unique and powerful martial skills are secret skills.
Most common martial skills are used in combat between martial cultivators but also can be used for other purposes like traveling and healing. Martial skills can increase all physical attributes of the user as well as go greatly beyond their limits but not without cost (for example check Murderous 7-Injuring Fists below).
The greater the benefit during combat the greater the cost. If a martial cultivator tries to use a high ranked martial skill before they are truly ready this could destroy their cultivation and body leaving them crippled for the rest of their lives. The most severe cost though is the cultivator dies.

*I've used Lightness Skill here for clarity, translated as Bodily Martial Skill in the official translation (which sounds awkward)
**Difficulty as in within it's rank (eg: "A" is the easiest in rank 5 while "X" is the most difficult in rank 5; resulting in "A" getting 1/5 and "X" getting 5/5 in this scale)
