Black Rhinoceros Style Kung Fu
Black Rhinoceros Kung Fu uses iron shirt training to emulate the thick skin of the rhinoceros, rendering most punches and other such strikes useless. Training focuses on the tendency of the rhino to charge suddenly, startling opponents and, if they do not counter-attack, they will be hurled backwards. Patterns tend to be short and brutal-looking. Instructors seek to cultivate the ability in their students to inspire awe and fear in anyone watching the patterns performed.
Founded by Ling Xiniu, who was a martial arts instructor in the earliest days of the Long Yu Fleet, inspired by a folk tale of this magnificent beast which once roamed the terrestrial plains, as told in his daughter’s favourite picture book.
