These two brothers, Li Fung and Li Yuen, are the nephews of Zhang Lipeng, a well known ex-Shaolin monk. In this probably one of its kind clip, the young brothers demonstrate the art of Iron Shirt (Golden Bell), a feat which is normally performed by seasoned adult practitioners. Many advanced martial arts include some form of Iron Shirt in their training for both health and combat purposes. The training of some traditions involved gradual buildup of resistance to hits while others concentrate on standing meditation, breathing and semi-isometric exercises.
