How Master Dao Can Break Three Iron Bars at Once!
In this video, Master Dao demonstrates how he channels his inner qi (called subtle qi) to his head in order to lessen the blow of 3 stacked iron bars. You can see the level of mental focus required for this high risk demonstration. He makes it possible to break a three iron bars without any bruising or swelling.
Hitting yourself with an iron bar is a lethal venture so don't ever try this yourself! It takes years of dedicated training and hours of preparation each time. With hard qigong training for two years, it is possible to break one iron bar with some bruising and swelling. The more dedicated practitioners might be able to break two. But three?
It may be difficult to understand how it is possible consider the inability of science today to measure subtle qi. Here Master Dao does the demonstration at a fundraising banquet for Shaolin Team Canada in order to inspire others to train harder and to learn qigong [for health reasons, not for breaking iron bars!].
