(Scroll down for video) A man in China, is making a good living by being a human punching bag.
Xie Shuiping, 48, gets paid from people in exchange for allowing them to hit him as hard as they can.
Xie travels for “business,” and offers himself to random people on the streets, in bars and nightclubs, giving them the opportunity to punch him in the stomach three times.
Xie of Wuhan in Hubei province, said that he earns approximately 20,000 yuan ($3,200) a month, enough to make a decent living.
“I’m not afraid to be beaten. The only thing I fear is not making money,” Xie said.
He explained that his stomach does not move while he is being punched as he is using a Chinese martial art technique that focuses on breathing exercises, which he began studying at 10 years old.
Although his wife does not like his career choice, Xie believes that there is nothing wrong with taking a beating to support loved ones.
“The support of my family comes first,” Xie said.
