I wonder if Harry Houdini's ability to withstand blows to the chest is a reinvention of Iron Shirt??
It is a very rare form of Chi Kung. It involves 20 plus exercises that are not done under dynamic tension - like the Stone Warrior - but are twisting fast repetitions done with belly breathing. The Iron Vest is an Internal Exercise and requires breathing, repetition, and hard concentration. It also is a herbal assisted program which requires rare herbs and formulas to accomplish.
The way I understand it is that for the first 100 days you have to refrain from sex, take a semen pill daily, and perform the 20 plus sets, which takes 1.5 hours. After the first 100 days it hardens the solarplex as hard as a rock. Continues exercise continues to harden from the solarplex in a circular motion throughout the rest of the body. As I understand it to be a five year program.
Umm, where does all the above information come from?
Oh, and Sources including Rod Sacharnoski!!! Wow...must be authentic then...

- I have never heard of any of these people sited as sources. And the websites don't even cover iron shirt. One of them is about combat-ki (Which is supposed to toughen the body), but it is a Japanese art and is not real iron shirt. Another source is just a page about the "72 Shaolin arts" which gives very vague descriptions of said skills. I have tagged the page because I don't feel the sources are reliable enough.
