A Shaolin monk stunned viewers by allowing judges of a television show to kick him in the groin.
The programme, which is similar to South Africa's own 'SA's Got Talent', appeared on China Central Television.
Contestant Yong Hsueh, who told the audience that he practices the rare martial art of "steel crotch Kung Fu", showed off his ability to withstand the blows, bowing and smiling after each kick.
"Steel crotch Kung Fu is an ancient art, with roots stretching back to ancient China," he said.
"It's a practice to strengthen and protect the male genital organs so there is less chance they are injured or incapacitated in battle."
According to Yong Hsueh, the art is divided into two parts — "hard crotch Kung Fu" and "soft crotch Kung Fu".
The former, which Yong Hsueh says involves pushing the testicles back into the body, can only be learned from childhood. But "soft crotch Kung Fu" can be learned later in life... especially by men who want to improve their sex life, says Yong Hsueh.
