The brick-breaking demonstration is a staple of martial arts show-offs. The master makes obvious the power and discipline of his fists by shattering a stone with a single blow, a feat no normal human could accomplish. In this Hawaii News TV segment, a kung fu master took the show a step further, breaking bricks with a simple glass cup but leaving the cup itself intact. Such a thing could only be accomplished by fine muscle control honed over years of serious study of kung fu.
Or you could just rig the bricks, so they’re easy to break with a touch.
As the reporter tries to show off how sturdy the bricks are, he accidentally gives away the truth when he breaks one in half by pressing lightly on it. Either you shouldn’t mess with that reporter, or this segment is very suspicious.
