Iron shirt or robe technique will not make you impervious to injury. What it will do is to help you to take or absorb the hit better with minimal damage. I have learned some Iron robe technique with my Sifu and I can now take a hit from a wooden baseball bat with minimal damage. But no way can I not get seriously hurt by any sharp objects not even my sifu can do that. Oh and by the way I heard some stories from some poeple where they said there master could take a bullet with out getting hurt to me thats Bull sh!@#. The only person who can take a bullet and not get hurt is Superman lol.




The bullets were old style musket balls. Also, resistant to cuts is a different form (diamond body or spirit armor). Its actually quite easy in theory. Its based on energy, color and visualization. Underneath the skin energy flows and comes out of the pores. A certain type of energy can make the skin resist cut of a metallic object. But this is not real kung fu. Its religon or kooky magic. People that imply that universal qi and breathing and hardnening makes them resist cuts, and blows and all this are simply mixing metafors. They dont really understand what they are saying. In the old days people would mix 5-6 different methods. Prayer, incense, writing symbols on your body, eating odd things, rolling in sand, meditation, tension, ect. Sun da is an example. There are remnants even today. Altars and magic potions. Magic hand signals, secret handshakes. Bowing to a dead master. Calling for the monkey king, drinking from a goblet, it goes on and on. This is where you get into dangerous and delusional territory. Why wouldnt a teacher feed of some of it? It serves his interests to have his picture on the wall next to buddha and to get red money packets. And have people pretend to be dedicated and huble so he might one day teach a secret of adjusting your pain threshold.

I've done Q'i gong research for ten years now and Serious practice for 3 the Iron shirt/body is part myth part fact the bullet thing was a scam used to make fearless soldiers durring the Golden Fist Rebelion so groups of men with "magic vests" could attack British Riflemen. Liang's and Wen's book Q'i Gong Empowerment has a meathod of training in the Iron Shirt and I've practiced the NeiKung and have side effect from the training so approach at your own risk

I reckon learning for words alone should only be for finding out the theory, and if your interested, later go and learn from a teacher

Besides, learning about MA is quite fun!
