This Chinese iron shirt or QiGong Heavy Metal Massage Brush is the ultimate tool for body conditioning and practicing hard QiGong. We weren't able to source them in China like we do a lot of our products so we went all out and had them handmade in the UK. A very talented friend of mine is a 20 year long Kung Fu practitioner and also happens to be a blacksmith making Chinese training weapons. He's trained in China many times and in different styles of martial arts but Shaolin for the last 20. He was the perfect person to ask to make these and has done an unbelievable job.
The brief was to make the ultimate Metal Massage Brush, the heaviest on the market and the toughest for those wanting the best body conditioning tool. It weighs an epic 1.8kg and, as far as we know, is the heavuest in the world. It has a similar diameter to the Bamboo massage brush we sell but is solid steel. Just swinging this thign is a challenge so during a conditioning session you will also work your grip strength and forearm strength as we as the body conditioning. A good strike with this will help spread the bristles, massage the muscles, move the qi and work the body, as well as helping develop your hard QiGong. This was created with Hard QiGong in mind, body conditioning and those wanting to toughen their body, if you had a more health approach in mind, we do do a smaller size brush too which will help these aspects more. The quality of build makes this a training tool that will last a lifetime and never need to be replaced, unlike the bamboo ones that do wear out over time. It is a serious training tool for those serious about body conditioning.
Used by the Shaolin Monks for body conditioning, it can also help reduce tension in the muscles and build up conditioning to impact and strikes. Not just people training Kung Fu can use these but anyone can benefit from the Metal Massage Brush.
These metal Massage brushes have been handmade for Enso Martial Arts Shop by Bert Wallis of Fairfield Forge in Bath. He makes Chinese Martial Arts Weapons and training equipment as well as having trained in Chinese Kung Fu for the last 20 years. If you are interested in having a specific weapon commissioned, please contact Bert at [email protected]
