Unbelievable clip shows a Shaolin monk crushing rocks with his bare hands

The Shaolin Temple in Dengfeng county, China, is a modern day legend. Dating back nearly 1500 years, the school has a history so rich that its name has become common in cultural lexicons the world over.

Its members — the monks that practice there — have thusly come to find their likenesses embedded in the various legends, historical accounts, films, and even graphic novels and video games people enjoy everywhere.

Shaolin Monks believe that once they have trained their minds to achieve the level of focus necessary to harness their Chi, their physical movements are limited only by their imaginations. They are capable of extraordinary feats when it comes to their Kung Fu skills.

The course of a Shaolin Monk’s physical training will carry them from straightforward tasks, in the beginning, into ever-increasingly complexity, cresting with seemingly impossible trials of physical strength, agility and flexibility.
