Too slow for meta

Your senses are not that attuned.

[–]ghettone 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Give him Ishii or Shabata and see what happens.

[–]reallyserious 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Try not to break any bricks on your way to the parking lot.

[–]varyingmonotone 3 points4 points  (1 child)

37 bricks!?!

[–]thaDoroshow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ha fucking gold

[–]EnVyeUs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

14 bricks? Light work.

[–]Lorderan56 94 points95 points  (3 children)

Are the 3rd and 4th bricks already broken? If you watch carefully they break right where the faint line is.

[–]BreadAndSanderson 75 points76 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure most of them are

[–]HD_Thoreau_aweigh 25 points26 points  (1 child)

They might just be scored: a line was made the whole way around with a Mason's chisel. Once you do that they break pretty easily.

Edit: if you look at the cleanliness of the line you can tell which ones were scored and which ones weren't. Down near the bottom there are a few in a row which were clearly scored because the line at which they break is very clean and straight. Compare that to the bricks at the very top where the break is pretty jagged.

I think this is based on the same principle as hand crushing a stone or a coconut on something flat.
You need to lift it up a mm or two from the ground.

Look at how the top two bricks are lifted up slightly. Nonetheless it is impressive. but there is a technique to it.

[–]Reddit_SuckLeperCock 166 points167 points  (5 children)

Of all the gifs that need slow mo at the point of action, this is it. Any one want to help a technical illiterate out?

[–]ccidaho 74 points75 points  (2 children)

Well I’ll make sure to use this one my opponent is leaning precariously on a ledge with 13 other opponents laying beneath him.

[–]IceCubez 17 points18 points  (1 child)

You make it sound like getting into fights is a common occurrence to begin with.

[–]ccidaho 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah man, martial arts sparing and the like.

[–]WooBoost 180 points181 points  (15 children)

weird how they miraculously split down the already existing line in all the bricks :O

[–]Germanweirdo 169 points170 points  (12 children)

Ya no, they're normal bricks. See how he tilted the stack? He only needs to break the top one and it hitting the next will break that one and so on like dominos.

But hey, nothing ever happens right?

[–]satanicmajesty 37 points38 points  (2 children)

They’ve already been scored so they break with a little tap, kind of like a tile cutter scores the tile and then it snaps where it was scored.

[–]bravenone 14 points15 points  (2 children)

If you look at the third and fourth bricks from the bottom you can clearly see there's already a crack down the middle and this is exactly where they break.... Open your eyes

[–]yellow_logic 8 points9 points  (0 children)

lol they’re already broken, though.

Look at the bottom of the stack, there are clear splits in two of the bricks more noticeable than the others.

[–]theessentialnexus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think they break from bottom to top. Because where is the room to sever the brick above in half if there is a flat brick below?

[–]ayobeslim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Xalden 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Can we get the slo-mo guys to record this?

[–]MoneyMcGregor 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I always thought I'd have to try and break bricks some day. Pretty sure it was because of that Chuck Norris movie with the kid with athsma or something. Sidekicks??

[–]hiro48 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Chuck Norris? Chuck Norris? He doesn't compete anymore because of me! I would kick...his...ass. Kick his ass!


[–]MoneyMcGregor 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ahhh nice!! The full movie is right there as next video. Bout to watch it. Lol

[–]hiro48 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Time to take a trip to memory lane

[–]MoneyMcGregor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol totally forgot Winnie Cooper is in this

[–]deathtostatic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

...no, bottom one.

[–]thedutchqueen 2 points3 points  (1 child)

his reaction at the end is so casual


[–]jonv52590 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where he snaps to attention for like half a second

[–]boolabula 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What a smile. Cute and dangerous as fuck

[–]Seethesvt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wish we could get that in super slow-mo.

Measure twice. Chop once.

[–]Blobbyo25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Love how happy he looks before and after said chopping

[–]AdroitCell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Orion_Skymaster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that you Mr.Satan (Hercule for those who watch English dubs)

[–]uvinizy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's like the phone book trick. Notice how there's some space between the bricks, especially at the top.

It's still pretty impressive considering he's breaking bricks with his bare hands.

[–]futurestrawchamp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can see several cracked bricks from the side. Probably all cracked

[–]hairycantaloupe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wonder if he tried with 15 first?

Man the CCP is getting lazy with their propaganda

[–]MrPijus123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

3rd and 4th from the bottom have a very visible line right where they split. I call BS.

[–]azqura 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty sure that is made in china

[–]absolutedesignz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Contagious smiles

[–]HoustonWelder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Leverage and impact. Notice how hes holding the top few.

Bleep-bloop, I'm a bot. This portmanteau was created from the phrase 'Chinese military'. To learn more about me, check out this FAQ.

[–]Ashen-Knight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not buying it buddy.

[–]Jrummmmy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The technique is to have space between them. They probably put pennies

[–]TheKappp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude, you single? lol

[–]scholorboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The 4th birck has a a crack which can be seen !!! Haa caught ya asshole !!!

[–]drl0607 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can anyone explain this science to me?

How does force move like that?

[–]tasmanian101 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Scored bricks + leverage on the edge + fanning the bricks out. You break the top one and the rest easily break along the score line

[–]PM_ME_YER_CUNT 4 points5 points  (0 children)

its fake. the bricks are scored.

[–]Jos-bob 0 points1 point  (1 child)

There must he a trick or something...

The first smartass who replies ''practice'' has to pat that man some working gloves

[–]Kinzlei 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this every morning. Good to see it's catching up. ._.

[–]Jpfcz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The first 2 look like there’s space to break them more easily. I wonder if that then allowed for enough momentum to break the rest? Like it’s maybe more of a magic trick than a feat of strength

[–]ShooterMcGavin000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doesn't count. These are chinese bricks. Shittty quality.

[–]PM_YOUR_HARDCOCK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There is no way this isn’t at least somewhat staged. This might be the shittiest form for breaking bricks I have ever seen.
