China’s Wang Liutai is one of the few remaining trustees of a reportedly 300-year-old discipline in which the practitioner uses their scrotum as a shield, Reuters reported.

Dubbed “iron crotch kung fu,” the painful-seeming technique requires the 65-year-old to regularly brace himself as an 88-pound, steel-capped log repeatedly rams his nether regions.

“As long as you push yourself, you will feel great,” said Wang, who has been practicing iron crotch kung fu for around 50 years. He teaches the ball-busting exercise at the Juntun Martial Arts Academy in Luoyang, Henan Province.

Despite seeming like an excruciating form of contraception, Wang maintains that the fighting form has no adverse effects if executed correctly.

“Please don’t worry about this,” assured the the father of two. “If practicing this damaged this part of the body permanently, then over time no one would do it.”

The master claims that “the more you practice, the stronger you become.” Repeatedly hitting the “bag” helps increase testicular fortitude, according to fellow iron crotch instructor 60-year-old Tang Baocai.

So while ordinary people might cringe at just the thought, these experts claim that they are fine “no matter if we’re kicked or punched,” said Wang.
