    I think what people are saying is that an untrained person, if shown the lifting technique, could duplicate your breaking without any martial arts knowledge. It's physics.

    As for the candle, can you do that again only wearing a mask or snorkel that would make it impossible for your breath to affect the flame?

    I think I was pretty clear: I think you're using physics tricks to demonstrate martial prowess. I think this because the demos you've shown so far are common martial arts parlor tricks.
    That bick was very big, you cant break it you dont lift brick, im not grandmaster.
    Are you saying you couldn't break the brick without lifting it? Because that's not really helping your case.
    Answer for candle blow - YES
    It looks like you're doing something like this:


    At any rate, if legitimate I don't really see the utility.

    why you all think this videos is all a trick, i did not expect that from this forum.
    Because you are demonstrating pretty common martial arts tricks.

    Boards don't hit back :)?

    In other words, videos of non compliant sparring go a much longer way around here.

    I think that depends on how the break is performed, and how the tiles are set up prior to breaking

    ok, tell me how to set up tiles and i will break it. I just dont like that u think that bad about taekwondo breaking...

    you see it like tricks, but i see it like the system how bricks, boards and tiles are breaking.Even when u lift a brick u need some power to break it, and years of training.

    You should be able to replicate these techniques against a moving, resisting opponent. Could you break the other fighter's ribs while he's trying to kick your head off?

    Marco,

    The problem with feats like the ones you show in your video is that they don't demonstrate martial arts prowess in any meaningful way. Blowing out a candle by pushing air at it doesn't prove you can strike properly, either in a self-defense situation or in the dojang. Your other videos are all of downward strikes or kicks at horizontal targets on the floor or on a table, which don't really reproduce anything one would do in a fight, in a sparring match, or even in a poomsae.

    When we call your demonstrations "tricks" we're not accusing you of making fake videos; it's clear you're really breaking stuff. What we're saying is that the things you do in these videos aren't really martial arts demonstrations.

    And as a personal side note, breaking rocks with your bare hands is a bad idea. The reward ("Cool, I broke a rock!") is not worth the risk ("****, I broke my hand!").
