Su Kong Tai Djin, the Kung Fu Werewolf.

From The Human Marvel:

Tai Djin was born in China in 1849. He was born unique, afflicted with hypertrichosis. Unlike Jo-Jo, who would be born a few decades later, Tai Djin was born into a highly superstitious family. As A result they saw his affliction as the work of demons and he was left in the forest to die.

A Shaolin monk traveling through the forest discovered the child and took him back to the Fukien Shaolin Temple. There Tai Djin was raised by the monks.

He was trained in martial arts and it quickly became apparent that he was exceptional in both appearance and ability. The boy must have been a sight practicing kung-fu with his face covered in fine fur. He quickly became a favorite of many of the Shaolin masters and, as a result, each master passed their knowledge on to Tai Djin.

He was a sponge and mastered every technique shown to him. He became the first to master over 200 different empty hand systems and over 140 weapon systems. His various specialties included the infamous Chi Ma, or ‘Death Touch’. After several years of extensive training he became the first Grandmaster of Shaolin and one of the first to master all skills of the seven Shaolin temples.


im sorry if this sounds a bit ignorant and even foolish, maybe im just to straight forward to see the distinction but is this fake?

I mean if a man can sit on his over-sized balls, this doesn't seem too unreasonable. Just wondering ..

Oh it's real, believe me. I've seen several television shows dealing with it. And here's the Wikipedia article on the condition...

At the bottom of the entry page are several links to interviews and articles featuring people with hypertrichosis, as well. Worth the read, not just for the medical aspect of it, but also for the fact that these people get on with their lives--and in many cases, thrive--despite their appearance. Certainly a lesson for all of us to live by.

It took me a while to believe too, but I train under Grand master Mullins. His teacher (Sin The) was taught by Ie Chang Ming who was Su Kong Tai Djin student.

Sin The is a Phoney and his "art" shaolindo is a scam. Don't fall for it. It is not a legitimate school.

Su Kong may have been a real person but these people are being taken for their money.

I have been a martial artist for 33 years and have trained with real masters from China and my present teacher is from Fukien China. They claim their lineage is from Fukien but the forms they teach are not from there. Sin The Kwang just has a huge collection of videos and passes himself off as a grand master.

Don't be taken.

I must disagree with you. Is it so unbelievable that monks could actually flee from a temple burned for political reasons, settle in different areas, and teach their knowledge to new students? Su Kong Tai Djin did. He then taught Ie Chang Ming, who found himself on the wrong side of the law, and had to seek refuge in Indonesia, where he taught Sin Kwang The, and there's the lineage.
