‘Iron body’ Kung Fu master takes on kickboxer – ends brutally
Many styles of traditional martial arts include ‘body strengthening’ as part of their training regime, most notably Kung Fu (Chinese martial arts), but many styles of karate include this type of training too.
In this video, we see if this type of training actually makes a difference as an alleged master of ‘iron body’ Kung Fu takes on a kickboxer and it ends quite brutally.
As previously stated, many styles of traditional martial arts incorporate body strengthening training into their regimes and ‘iron body’ isn’t so much a style of its own, but more so, a type of training that the gentleman in this video clearly invests a lot of time in.
We see in the below video that in this instance, ‘iron body’ training really doesn’t do much of anything and this is, unfortunately, just another challenge match between someone who doesn’t know how to fight and someone who does.
However, with all of that being said, at least the guy in this video lands a couple of okay looking kicks before he gets knocked out. Sure, he definitely still ends up getting his butt kicked, but compared to many other traditional stylists in these kinds of fights, at least this guy goes does swinging to some degree.
Check out the video below and see how an alleged master of ‘iron body’ Kung Fu does against a kickboxer.
