Right, so i was ust thinking about it. I know they use the medicine before and/or after thitting themselves with things and punching things etc. im not asking about that bit. But, is there a specific exercise set for it? like do they do a lot of core exercises to build up the muscle in your torso to make it harder to hurt them etc. And also is there any sort of "how to take a punch" training which isnt solely conditioning? It just popped up in my head and i was meaning to ask. Oh and how does the Chinese methods stack up with the other methods from other styles, like whats the difference.
