So if a martial artist can...
Anonymous 05/07/14(Wed)17:35 UTC+1 No.403909 Report

So if a martial artist can break a cinder block does that mean he could punch my arm in half if I were to block with it? A cinder block is harder than my arm.

depends if you've never trained for bone density, also bones can bend more than cinder blocks

dude peopel get their arms broken clean in half from punches all the time. you should read the news more and do some research.

When breaking, the material is always lodged as firmly as possible, except for some dropping breaks in some dan tests but the board used in those are much weaker. when blocking, your arm will be pushed aside before it breaks. Besides, breaking requires you to exploit the item's weakest point, so there really isn't that much skill involved.

is OP troll?

If a cinder block is harder than an arm, then the arm would break when you hit the cinder block.

No; you'd have to get resistance on both ends of the arm to simulate the flexibility and give of a pile of cinder blocks. Otherwise your elbow would do exactly what it's there for and bend back to absorb along a distance instead of having the entirety of the pressure on one point/bone

the materials martial artists break are fake. the "bricks" they use are custom made and have a high sand content and the wooden boards are baked in an oven to make them more brittle.

No,
There are muscles skin and fat reducing the impact and unlike cinder your bones can deform before they break, also, the blocks are still in their place while your arms would bounce back.

i thought cinder block breaking was just a trick?
notice they are all elevated slightly

yep that's the trick, they're saying it's so and so cinderblocks but its really 50% air!

This reasoning is so dawn stupid. The block isn't harder than your arm. To strike it, they use the most perfect strike in the most perfect situation to deliver a powerful blow, ain't going to happen IRL.
Do you know how hard it is to break in half a single rib? Are you even martial artist?

You can actually break a board out of the air, you don't have to have it held in place. It just requires more power. And if someone did put up an arm to block, they would be putting resistance behind it, making it easier for them to break. Bones can definitely break. Just not nearly as easily.

If you just put five cinder blocks one on another then force gets absorbed real fucking quick and breaking them is impossible.

It is skill involved in alot of breaking, whether that skill is applicable to anything other the being able to break inanimate objects remains to be seen but that is a different argument.

That dude was insane in more ways then one (in the best way). I doubt there will ever be someone quite like him in a 100 years.

>>404023
The body is generally really fucking durable, a lot more durable then most people think. Best place to see proof of that is a good side show.

Gust skip to like 24 or so minuets in. Breaking concrete slabs isnt much different, it is all about the way it's supported. Without reinforcement and the right mixture concrete can be very brittle.

Not really. I could drop a cinderblock and it would break in half whereas I could drop you directly on your arm and it won't necessarily break.
Your bones are not only denser, but they are more flexible than cinderblock too. Furthermore, they're covered in fleshy stuff.
In general though, don't punch your own arm.

with a lever and a fulcrum, it doesnt take much force at all to break someones arm, much less than it takes to break a cinderblock.

if you bend your arm at the elbow and someone punches your elbow they break their hand

that's why you keep your hands up near your face, so dumb faggots hurt themselves on you
