    Silat on Anthony Bourdain

    Tonight I watched Anthony Bourdain in indonesia & in it was a Silat "Master" throwing chi balls at his students making them stop dead in their tracks. That part was pure Bullshido but I was impressed with the breaking iron bars demo they did. They were like a half inch thick each & 3 of them were stacked directly up ontop of each other. True that it's not a useful fighting skill but it was impressive all the same.

    Why didn't the "Master" use his chi balls to break the iron bars. They probably had the bars frozen ahead of time so they would be really brittle.

    You can bake concrete cynderblocks & bricks in a regular oven to reduce the water content, making them brittle and easy to break.

    You can do the same thing (on low heat) to a pine board, to make it easy to break.

    For that reason, I am not impressed by any breaking demos, they are USUALLY complete B.S.
