Notice I say trick because the countless hours it probably took to train this amount to a skill that cannot be applied in any realistic way at all.
If someone paid money so that you could see this, then it did exactly what it was intended to do... It's been said that these days, they're only communists on paper.
Capitalism wins again!

This is real, not BS. It's called the "One Finger Dharma" and it has been passed on for many years. Most people now only pass on the two finger version, point finger on each hand. Utterly useless from a martial standpoint, but pretty cool to know that the body is capable of this. If you look closely, you can see the deformities on his fingers from practicing. Again, real, but yes useless.

http://imdb.com/title/tt0121739/ check out this video, which called the Abbot Tai Sheng to see all sorts of hilarious Chi Kung Self Abuse, including the old geezer with the finger. Guys dragging transmissions with their nuts , hitting the Monastarry bell with their head, etc. Ton's of chuckles, along with some good wushu forms and a weird style of kickfighting- look ma, no hands, period!
