A guy breaking boards with his mind/chi?

I've never seen a demonstration like this.

There's always a chance that it's fake, but if it is they did a good job.

You can hear the crackles in the first attempts, and it doesn't look like there'd be too many ways to get the boards to do that on their own.

Plus he's got a sweet outfit on.

Intresting Video.

The 5 boards in the first two attempts must have been to much for him.

I think I can see cracks in the lower boards become visable just before his last attempt.

So I would have to say faked.

THAT was freaking COOL! NOT FAKE! It just the power of the spirit ... That guy is just in tune with his Chi and can direct its force quite effectively..

The is also those human stun guns that can use simaler focus of chi to knock a person out without touching them...

Cool stuff, Cool vid

Hmmm break boards with his mind? Nope!

Look in the red square, you can see where the top board is cut:

Ok now we see all the boards "break" cleanly in half:

How does he do it? Maybe the boards are balancing perfectly? Maybe a piece of fishing line rigged up? Certainly not using his mind to do it though.

What I find interesting about it is that the first board to break is infact the third one down.

And then a split second later the top one bends, yet the split in the third board is much more pronounced and the second board hasn't even reached it yet.

It seems a very unusual way for boards to break.

That has to do with transfer of energy, and if you go see any board or block breaking in slow motion you'll find the middle or bottom breaks first.

These sorts of people never seem able to repeat the same in a controlled enviroment. C'mon, if you can cut timber with your swede, you could make a fortune masterminding controlled demolitions.

Here's Derren Brown demonstrating the illusion of the one inch punch, so much for telekenesis then

utter rubbish
this is not a one liner

Yeah okay... If he can do this with one board I have set up, I'll give him $1000.

How are people so gullible?

James Randi would give him a Mil

Look at his left leg. His legs are even next to each other before he begins. Then, his left leg moves toward the boards. There is most likely something tied (very thin wire) to the boards where his left foot just stepped on.

Because moving your feet seems like such an innocent act when doing things like this I would assume (only my opinion) he stepped on the wire and timed the collapse with his hand movement. Typical fakery here folks.

Does energy that we do NOT understand exist? Of course. I just feel that this video is faked.

YEah it's a stunt. The above posters gave good evidence of that in their analysis of the video.

Chi gong doesn't work like that. Meaning that the way the guy acted in the video is phoney. Real Chi Qong masters do various movements to re direct their internal chi to settle it again after they preform their feats. It's the hallmark of all real chi gong. go look up shaolin monks demonstrating their chi gong skills and you will see all of them doing various chi gong movements afterwards to settle and re absorb their chi.
Trust me having dabbled in even the lightest chi gong exercise and on occasion forgetting or from being lazy failing to do those chi settling movements after wards I have experienced what is called chi lock. chi lock is what happens when you don't redirect those energies back to a more neutral place or at least away from where they have been stored up after exercises in chi gong. that energy has to go somewhere and if you don't "put it away after using it" so to speak you get all sorts of complications. That entire night, your body will ache badly like you have the flu. your shoulders and major joints will hurt the worst. you will feel like a buzzing in your brain, sometimes an iron taste on your tongue and occasional uncontrollable leg twitches (usually your leg shoots out like a dog reflex or something) in fact your whole body feel like it could twitch or jump at any moment, antsy feeling.

Also another thing to look out for is the persons stance work while performing the act. real chi gong users will have their feet firmly on the ground as that is where they get a lot of their leverage. They also believe that a lot of their energy other than from coming from the tan tien (energy chakra near the lower abdomen) comes from the ground. It's also what makes the distinction between normal gong fu and shaolin gong fu. shaolin has chi gong movements built in subtly to all of their kung fu movements giving them access to much more power while performing.

I've personally seen real chi gong acts performed before even participated in helping with some. everything that guy does just seems out of character for one using chi gong. I've seen a guy break spears with his throat, bend re-bar with his throat, smash steel bars on his head, break bricks over just about every part of his body, and move so fast a camera would have a hard time picking him up in focus if filmed in normal speed. THis is just not how chi gong masters do their thing. without the movements I talked about the performance is like a magic show where the magician has no wand says no spells etc...phoney.

I'm not James Randi

Still the point is... if he could really do this under circumstances controlled by a neutral party... he could make a mint.

Unfortunately, it's just bad slight of hand : /

Look at the two cinder blocks used to support the ones he's "attempting" to "break"....they keep getting spread further apart. The boards have slight fractures in them and would eventually fail all on their own without anyone standing there.

Picture a 6 foot board sawed almost all the way through...prop it up with blocks directly next to the cut....nothing. Move the blocks to each end of the board and it starts to sag, eventually breaking.

If this guy (or anyone) could actually do things like this...

Why are they messing around in a parking lot and not putting these skills to better and worthwhile use?

Very fake.....clever, but fake.

Get a job.

I've broken ATS a couple of times with my posts.

Does that count as breaking a board?

This one is fake, but, if you slow down videos of martial artists breaking ( while they yell ( called a kiai ) ) you can see the boards or whatever they are breaking start to crack before the hand actually hits. It's not a large distance, probably not even an inch, but it is there. It's the energy being thrown out before the break and has to do with good technique. If your technique is poor then your energy flow is all messed up and you will hurt yourself.

You guys clearly are just mean and spiteful.

DID YOU SEE HIS PANTS? How could somebody with pants like that be a fake.
