    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is it possible to break a bottle with a punch/kick.

    I recently watched a video of a karate expert breaking a beer bottle with a round house kick. It was just standing on a table with no one holding it. (I am not allowed to post videos). He hit it with the top of his foot/instep and chopped the top off, while the rest of the bottle stayed on the table. I am not using his name because that's not the purpose of my thread.

    Is it actually possible to do that, or is it more likely the bottle was stage glass or candy or something like that? The expert looked pretty fat and out of shape to me, but he's pretty well known in Russia and has been around for a long time.

    I would say under the circumstances described it is most likely a prop.
    Mostly because you can't really break glass in half like that.

    Possible ... but I would say unlikely for a fat guy. I have seen similar board breaks in real life.

    Watch the way this bottle just shatters when it is hit

    I'm guessing you mean this one:


    I noticed he missed a few times; this makes me guess that the trick is hitting the bottle quickly at the very, very top of it. What I was looking for was moving the bottles, because one thing that would make this easier is having the bottle glued to the table. He moves the last one. A lot of bottle breaks on youtube never show the bottle being placed down or moved afterwards.

    Here's a clip from Budo: Art of Killing


    Here's an Aussie guy doing it:


    Another:




    Here is, by far, the lamest example:

    Interesting. If you type this into the youtube search box 'KOI - Горлышко бутылки' you'll find the video I was referring to. Glad to see it's actually a legitimate possibility. Now I kind of want to try it.

    I think I will start with my head and work from there (Spetznaz style).

    There's video of Oyama shuto-ing through a bottle like that too. Blooming said that it was a stunt and the glass was scored first. That may explain the extremely clean breaks. But I've never tried to do this and never will until the next time I get drunk.

    That was pretty impressive. See, I always thought that this kind of stuff has to be staged, but maybe it's not after all.
