Listen Now: Iron Crotch Kung Fu
Most men do whatever they can to protect the family jewels, but in China, they’re an open target.
Iron Crotch Kung Fu is a form of Kung Fu practiced in Central China. Its most famous technique involves a six foot long, 88 lb., steel-plated capped log, swinging through the air and smashing into a man’s crotch.
The head of the academy says as long as you push yourself, you will feel great. He has been practicing for more than 65 years and says it does not hurt and has no effect on fertility.
Mastering Iron Crotch Kung Fu involves taking hits to the body’s weakest points while using a special breathing technique. The other parts of the body up for a beating are the throat, head, chest and back.
For years the practice was a secret, but the number of people practicing had dropped so much they started recruiting. Now the Kung Fu masters hold demonstrations to showcase their techniques. They have also recruited students from other parts of the country with online videos.
Can’t imagine the first lesson is much fun.
