Grandmaster Ip Chee Keung

Grandmaster Ip Chee Keung (Yip Chee Keung), the current lineage holder of Chow Gar Praying Mantis, demonstrates amazing Iron Crotch skills to Chris Crudelli from BBC's Mind, Body and Kick Ass Moves. Chris Crudelli's kicks would have been painful even with a groin guard but Grandmaster Ip takes them in his stride. On a side note, this is what Grandmaster Ip has this to say about his art:
I first noticed that my Kung Fu was improving when my Chy Sau (*an exercise specifically designed to strengthen the bridge in Southern Mantis, and to generate short range shock powers) became very strong. In Chow Gar, the Iron Shirt is generated at the same time as the shock powers. You cannot separate the two - when you have built up your short range powers, you will have also built your Steel jacket. Both are fundamental parts of the Chow Gar system...When you have a high level of Kung Fu, you will develop a deeper understanding [of spirituality]. Poor standards breed arrogance, greed and competition. To become humble and honest is the way of Chow Gar Mantis.
