    The closest I've come to an answer on that from some breaking folks is that breaking stuff shows you have hard hands and can break stuff.

    Personally, I tend to take the Mr. Miyagi method. You don't have to break stuff all the time in demos, but if you're a fighter, you ought to be able to hit hard things hard with your hands. Provided your art includes punching...

    Lacy bakes the cocconuts to make them more fragile. Its a gimmick.

    Yeah, but I mean real tamashiwari people will break all manner of stuff including coconuts. The coconut break is pretty common in hard core conditioning circles from what I've heard, although I'm not sure if it's usually more gimmick than anything else, but I assume some of these guys are for real since they break stacks of bricks as well.

    Sorry if that wasn't a reply to me ;)

    They bake the bricks aswell.

    I'm going to do the coconut thing on my mates, then claim I'm a deadly kung-fu master.

    There's a video clip on the main page called "18 Daoist Palms Earthquake Fist Tiger Step Solo Fighting Form". I don't think I need to explain what is wrong with that student.
