Ottoman Cuff is showing a young person hitting a wall -only with his hands. There exists a
legend about an Ottoman War technique: young man at the age of childhood is selected for
the army. He is trained as he numbs and hardens his palms by slapping the marble wall
until he gets calluses on his hands, grows owerful, so does not feel pain any more. The
saying goes that he is chosen to go to warfor an incursion to hit down the enemy warrior
and horse by his hands.
