Meet the weirdest Kung Fu skill: Suogugong, the art of body shrinking.
If you think Kung Fu, Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan come to mind. You would not imagine to see a Kung Fu master who shows off how he can squeeze into a toddler's shirt. Well here it is. Watch a Kung Fu master how he puts on a tiny shirt and even sticks beer bottles under it to demonstrate the art of Suogugong. Suogugong means body shrinking.
To make his body smaller, this Kung Fu master is dislocating his bones. According to Xinhua, well-known Kung Fu master Wang Baohe trained this rare Kung Fu skill over the past 60 years.
Watch below a performance of this weird Kung Fu skill. This definitely helps to sneak through small openings, but I am not sure what else it is good for in combat.
Kung fu means in Chinese any study, learning, or practice that requires patience, energy, and time to complete. Master Baohe's body-shrinking skill hits that original definition of Kung Fu head on. It wasn't until the late twentieth century, that Kung Fu was used mainly to refer to martial arts fighting.
