Shaolin Monks are pretty cool. They spend their time in the mountains meditating, learning martial arts, being at peace and being kicked in the balls... What? That's right, Kicked in the balls. I don't exactly understand why they would do this, and to be honest, I don't think they do either.. But you can see from this video the monks can really take a kicking to the old fellows and don't even flinch. I heard once that they can retract their testicles into their body, But still, I wouldn't like to chance it. anyone know why monks would be kicked in the balls like this? What's the purpose?
