Zhangjiajie Hard Qigong
2016-12-20 16:49:29  Zhangjiajie Tourism Information Website  

From historical records we learn that the magical Qigong of Zhangjiajie was invented by Cuiguzi; hence it bears the name Guigu Qigong.

Zhangjiajie enjoys a high reputation as County of Hard Qigong, especially in Guanliping village at the foot of Tianmen Mountain. It is the order of the day for men and women, young and old to practice this style of Qigong. Among the practitioners, a man by the name of Zhao Jishu was awarded first prize in the National Martial Arts Competition in 1979. A French man exclaimed that Chinese Hard Qigong displays true science and is a treasure shared by all humanity.

As for the performances, they usually involve lying face down on sharp steel forks, among other amazing displays.
