Uncover the truth of “hard qigong”
In recent years, with the continuous rise of the Qigong boom, the content of marriage with Qigong has also emerged endlessly.
For example, “electrical work”, “light work”, “slimming qigong”, “qigong calligraphy and painting”, “qigong dance”, “qigong song”. is really a prosperous scene.
And “hard qigong” is the leader in this hundred flowers.
People often go to the so-called hard qigong performance, what is the “open belly stone”, “silver gun throat”, “knife can not cut into”, “car over”, “head hit stone”, “finger drill brick” .It can be said that there are many different kinds of things.
Before the performance, the performers often boast of their own or others’ martial arts skills, and they have a lot of activities, and they are called “Luck”.
In fact, people who know the inside story know that this is just some of the performances that belonged to the rivers and lakes before the liberation and were gradually eliminated by the acrobatic circles after liberation.
With the rise of the Qigong boom, these contents were picked up by some operators and hanged on the qigong signboard, which was named “hard qigong”.
In this regard, the famous magic performance artist, “Acrobatics and Magic” magazine deputy editor, researcher Fu Qifeng of the Chinese Acrobatic Association research department has introduced me a lot of insider.
She said: “In the acrobatic world, the magic world talks about some extraordinary phenomena in Qigong performance, such as nail plate open stone, oil hammer topping, javelin throat, glass slag dancing, ear listening, etc., often clearly called之为‘腥活’或‘里大腥’（这是杂技界的一句春典——行话），意思是‘假的’、‘骗局’，认为这类节目既无高难技巧，亦无艺术可Words, as long as you have the strength, you have the courage to perform.
As long as you get the ‘door’ (the jargon, meaning method or trick), you can practice it in a few days.
These tricks are incomparable with the acrobatic magic that really pays attention to craftsmanship.
In the old society, many acrobatic magic artists have been forced to perform these programs.
新中国成立后，杂技走上了舞台，长期处于下九流的杂技魔术艺人成为新文艺工作者，受到党和国家的关怀与教育，周恩来总理曾经指出‘杂技要给人类以享受，给人愉快的感受You can’t use the deformity and stimulation to attract the audience.
As early as the early 1950s, the vast number of acrobatic workers consciously eliminated those things that were “Lie Dawei” and devoted themselves to the improvement and development of acrobatic magic skills.
It can be seen from this that the so-called hard qigong is just a kind of juggling performance by people who rely on strength, courage and tricks to confuse people who don’t know the inside.
Now I changed my name and insisted on being connected with Qigong. In fact, it is not only related to Qigong, but also does not have the superhuman ability of the performer.
In order to enable people not only to know in theory, but also to understand the truth of “hard qigong” through practice, here are a few examples to illustrate.
Head hit the stone monument: the performer smashed his head to the stone tablet, and the stone monument was broken into two pieces.
In addition to the long-term exercise of the performer’s head (such as the common wooden board), this performance does have a stronger impact resistance than the average person. More importantly, it pays attention to some methods.
The performer must place a hard object behind the stone monument, such as a large stone, an iron bar, etc., but the stone and the iron bar cannot be closely attached to the stone monument, so that there is a certain distance between the two to ensure the head collision.After the stone tablet, the stone tablet hit the stone and the iron bar at a very fast speed. The huge impact force between the two “stones” broke the stone monument into two pieces.
In addition, before the performance, the texture of the stone was very particular when selecting the slate. Not all stones were optional.
Before the performance, the stone monument was often treated with fire and other means.
On the other hand, if you just look for the stone tablet and put it tightly on the back stone, there is no distance in the middle, then the hard head can’t help it.
Silver gun throat: the two opposite, respectively, use the throat to hold the tip of the wooden pole at both ends, only to see the wooden pole was bent by the two, and the throat is safe and sound.
In fact, this program is not the stab-resistant ability of the two people in the throat, such as: First, the gun tip is blunt, not as sharp as the needle tip.
Second, the wooden pole on the gun is very soft, and the two bend gently.
The third is not the tip of the gun in the throat, but with the bending of the wooden pole, the side of the side of the gun head is attached to the sternum below the throat, the area is large and the pressure is small, and there is no danger.
Open stone on the abdomen: The performer is lying on the ground (or nail plate), and the body is pressed with a large slate.
The assistant smashed the slate, the stone was broken and the person was not damaged.
The reason for this performance is that the stone plate is pressed against the person, and the contact area is large and the pressure is small.
When the hammer is smashed on the slate, since the mass of the hammer is far less than the mass of the slate, the impact force transmitted to the human body through the slate is small to the human body.
In addition, the assistant uses a point hammer (hammered on the slate) when smashing the hammer, and does not penetrate deep.
As for someone lying on the nail board, it is also a small area with a small pressure.
It is as if you take a mane to tie the skin and it will hurt. If you take a bundle of mane and tie the skin, it will not hurt.
This kind of performance requires only guts.
Open the brick on the head: also called the oil hammer.
The performer put four or five bricks on his head, and the assistant picked up the sledgehammer and saw that the bricks were torn apart, but the head was not hurt.
This performance relies mainly on guts.If we let the bricks in our left hand and the hammer in the right hand go, I am afraid there is no reason to be reasonable. Everyone dares to do this experiment.
However, if you put the bricks on your head and then use a hammer, the people who dare to try will not be much.
In fact, there is no substantial balance between this and the bricks in hand. The difference is the change in mental state (the courage is small).
In addition, when the bricks were opened on the performance head, the performer held the bricks on the head with both hands, and the surface was seen not to drop the bricks. In fact, when the hammer would hit the bricks, the performers gently lifted the bricks with both hands.The scalp (the audience is not focused on this), which further reduces the impact of the brick on the head.
Of course, when the assistant is smashing the hammer, it is also the point to the end, not always consistent.
Finger Drilling Bricks: I saw the fingers of the performers drilled on the surface of the bricks. The bricks and powders flew, and the bricks were drilled into a hole in a few times, which was faster than the impact drill.
This show looks like a god, and there is no way to talk about it.
Before the performance, drill the hole on the brick first. Be careful when drilling through the hole, and keep a thin layer on the opposite side (when you use your finger to open it).
Collect the drilled brick powder and put it back into the drilled hole. The hole is sealed with brick powder inserted with paste, and the surface is sprinkled with a layer of brick powder to disguise it. A prop brick called performance is made.
It is best to drill the eye on the other side of the prop brick. After the armor performance is completed, the audience should be asked to “return one more”.
The knife can’t be cut: the performer is standing in the horse, holding the knife back with both hands, putting the sharp blade on the stomach, and the assistant takes a wooden stick to the back of the knife, and the performer’s belly appears above the skin.
The ratio of the outstanding performance of this program to the “Upper Ladder” performed during the emerging celebrations in Yunnan is really a shame.
The person on the ladder does not have to have qigong, and the knife is placed on the stomach without any thrilling.
If the performer brags that he has real effort, he is asked not to put the knife on the belly or pull it on the belly like a saw, and then the belly does not appear to be really hard.
But if there is such a request from the audience, there is no guarantee that no performer will respond.
Mouth-up motorcycle: The performer slammed one end of the rope on the back seat of the two-wheeled motorcycle and the other end on a towel.
The performer rubbed the towel tightly with his teeth, stepping on the ground with both feet, and letting the driver increase the throttle, the car could not drive away.
How is this going?
Usually the speed can exceed the car’s motorcycle, how can a tooth can make it sweep the ground?
It turns out that the driving force of a motorcycle with a high-speed gear or a small horsepower is not large, and the performer does not need to spend a lot of effort to pull it.
This kind of performance is also precisely the psychological misunderstanding of people.
According to experience, it is impossible, and science is precisely possible.
Now, the performance of this kind of motorcycle has been developed to a more impressive and confusing level.
The performer is not pulling a motorcycle, but also holding it at the same time, and the five feet are pulled together, which is called “five car competition.”
In fact, a motorcycle that can hold a tooth, stepping on it and pulling it on the foot is a piece of cake.
