8. Exercise "Iron Head"

TIE TOU GONG

Brief description*

*Excerpt from the book: Jin Jing Zhong. Authentic Shaolin Heritage: Training Methods of 72 Arts of Shaolin. ISBN: 978-1440474170

 

The exercise “Iron Head” is hard Shaolin GONG FU, it trains external power (strength) and belongs to the category YANG. Besides, this method also has an internal aspect: it must rely on strong QI. It is necessary to train three parts of your head: top, forehead and back. Although external effect (force) is employed to strengthen skin, muscles and bones, it is also necessary to develop the internal force and QI. The head should be filled with QI and Spirit. One can achieve success if the internal and external aspect match and supplement each other. Otherwise, if only the force of external effect without supplementation of the internal force is used, you will get some result, but it will be far from perfection...

...If this method is used against a man (as saying goes "to butt with the mutton head"), you can easily knock him down. The head of a well-trained man is harder than a stone. A head blow can split a stone slab and crumple an iron sheet. It only demands frank sincerity in training and fulfillment of all requirements with all one’s heart and self-denial. It is necessary to reject all extraneous thoughts so that peace and tranquility would reign in the head. They rightly say that it is necessary to improve your character before starting to train Martial Arts. In that case you will not go to deadlock and reach the destination. This kind of GONG FU is not so rare. For instance, strolling acrobats often show such exercises as “Striking with a Big Hammer at the Head” (YOU CHUI GUANG DING), “Two Dragons Dive in the Sea” (SHUANG LONG RU HAI), “Breaking Bricks” (ZA ZHUAN) and others – all this is the display of GONG FU “Iron Head”. This Shaolin GONG FU must be used only for self-defense, you should not be the first who delivers the blow. It is worth mentioning that it is comparatively easy to attain success in it.
