    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Some video links, your thoughts?

    I don't think these have been posted before:

    A lot of it is show-junk, but a couple of the techniques made me grin....

    Thoughts?

    Hmm.. In the world record attempt a couple of the breaks looked really powerful... Looked like he screwed one up, and only half the blocks broke. Then he made up for it on the next one..

    People may ridicule breaking but I sure as hell couldn't do that.

    Yeah, I wish I could do that... It's definately more impressive to the ladies to break concrete blocks with my bare hands than to squeeze a guys head between my legs.

    What mix would you guess the concrete is in those blocks? I only saw the world record one but they didnt look much stronger then sandstone looking at the slow rate the crack moved through some of the bigger setups.

    I'm genuinely curious could someone with some breaking and building expertese let me know.

    The breaking was kinda neat. Is he the guy who did the 500+ in one minute? That one was on espn. Most of the technique stuff is baically gasrden variety kempo.

    I was more impressed by the breaking than some of the other stuff (like the Richard Morris and Ron Carlson stuff). And what was that menage a trois all about?
