Yoko (or Yang Xiang in the Chinese tale) is known for saving his father from a tiger. One day, as the 14-year-old Yoko accompanied his father to the fields, a tiger interrupted their harvest. The beast leapt towards Yoko’s father and clenched the man in his jaws. Desperate to save his father, Yoko jumped onto the tiger’s back and wrapped his hands around its neck, squeezing the throat until the tiger dropped Yoko’s father and fled into the woods. Yoko carried his father home on his back.
