    1. Don’t mess with Buddhist Monks, they know Kung Fu and have a fetish with abusing themselves to be stronger.

    2. Meh, stuff like this always turn out to be fake in some way. Like how walking on burning coals doesn’t actual hurt, if you walk on the big rocks. This is probably just as lame.

    3. @AlecDalek:
      Not monks. They break cinderblocks over their ribs to make themselves stronger. Monks are fucking badass.

    4. @Sticky: If those spears are actually sharp, I don’t care how ripped your abs are, they will penetrate. I’m guessing they’re dull. Still painful, but not what they want you to think.

    6. They look kinda like Shaolin monks to me. Anyone know?

      I took Shaolin Kenpo for a few years a while back. 🙂

    7. @AlecDalek: its not the big rocks that don’t hurt, its walking on the ashes. why would big rocks(in direct heat) burn less?!

      they are sharp(enough?). but the monks are working together. they don’t want to stab him. how sharp do you need them to be to do that?

    11. Dude looks pretty skinny, doubt he weighs over 100 lbs. Five spears, each is exerting 20 pounds of force against him. If the tips are a bit blunt, they’re not going to penetrate.

      Someone should paint an arrow on his head and then he could be all like, “Look at me! I’m Fagatar, the last shitbender, and I’m flying! Wheeeeeee!”

      The coals are frequently broken up to expose the hot inner cores of the ash. There’s no “big rocks” to walk on – None more than an inch across. It doesn’t actually hurt because the specific heat capacity of human flesh on the toughened sole of the foot and the low heat conductivity of wood coals means hot coals can be walked on briskly without pain.

      Also, as for “just as lame”, I’d like to see you walk on hot coals, MF.

    14. I hold a rank of lao shih in a Shaolin traditional style and can say that , yes, these are monks from the temple and, no, these are not sharpened spear heads, but the ratio of weight to surface area is great and painful.
      The point of the exercise is to strengthen qi, specifically Wei qi which is a protective from.
      Iron body training, deep meditation are ways to achieve this as well just good living, eating. Wei qi helps fight of infections as well.
      My own teacher has pushed into a spear like this breaking the shaft with the front of the neck.
      As a westerner, it is hard to understand the spiritual aspect of this , but to have witnessed such live demonstrations of my teacher( and the original Shaolin team from the 1970’s at the Felt Forum where I also saw a 73 year old monk break a 9inch thick, 50 lb piece of granite with is palm) the empirical evidence is undeniable.
      But again, these guys have trained from around 7 years of age and dedicate their lives to training, meditation etc.
      I once worked out with Shih Yang Ming, of NY, and when he punched ( showing a technique),the air cracked.
      I have no doubts on the veracity of this image.
