Astonishing video shows kungfu master flicking cards so fast out of his hand he can pierce a beer can

A deck of playing cards is definitely not something you would expect to see in the arsenal of a Kung fu warrior.

But in the hands of this martial arts master it could be just as deadly as the double-edged sword or the flying dagger.

An astonishing video shows Zhou Chaofeng flicking cards so fast out of his hand he can pierce a beer can.

The footage, taken in Mianyang, Sichuan Province on August 11, shows Chaofeng launching the cards across great distances, and at rapid speed.

Amazingly he then throws them at bottles of beer, causing the liquid to spray out from the side.

The martial artist has practiced flying cards for 11 years alongside Kung fu.

Perhaps he should challenge magician Rick Smith Jr from the US, who holds the world record for the farthest throw.

In December 2002 he launched one over 65 metres (216 feet) at a speed of just under 92mph, making it the fastest ever throw too.

The speed of Chaofeng’s throws could lead some to suggest they could be used to kill or seriously injure someone.

But it would have to be a perfect eye-shot to cause any damage, as playing cards lack the mass to deeply cut into human tissue.
