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.
