Hey, remember in that movie Kickboxer when that old dude was like “kick the tree” and Van Damme kicked it and then got all whiny like “wahhh my leg” and we were all like “haha you pussy.”
But seriously, go outside and kick a tree — bare shinned — and let me know how it feels.
I’m sure it would hurt like hell, unless you’re the screaming crazy amazon lady in the video above, who had no problem chopping down a tree with her leg. I haven’t winced this hard since Muay Thai legend Melchor Menor broke a baseball bat with his leg.
And the best part of that video (watch it here), aside from the knocking sound of his warm up, is the reactions from his gawking onlookers.
I once tried to break a brick, Dim Mak style, and all I got were a bunch of red abrasions on my palm. That’s when I cashed in my Tae Kwon Do yellow belt (it was actually a white belt but my dog pissed on it) and quit martial arts.
That is all. Carry on.
