Cool Pics of Shaolin Monks in Training

As Shaolin monks believe the strength comes only from the mind, there are almost no limits to what can be done with their bodies during the trainings. They practice techniques centered around balance, strength, endurance, and self defense. They can endure incredible amounts of pain while barely flinching. The design and arrangements of their movements are based on the medical knowledge of ancient China and conforms to the rule of movement of the human body.
They believe that what their bodies can endure is symptomatic of the strength of their souls and minds.

i dont understand how the rock braking is possible
#18 to #13 - carbohydrates (08/05/2014) [-]
Rocks... You mean the bricks?
It's just the same idea as the board breaking and stuff you see karate people do.
Take a semi-fragile item, stack it several times, break it to everyone's amazement.
Except these guys aren't cheating...
Putting those little dowels between layers of stuff and breaking it is a hell of a lot easier than straight stacking them.
Space it out and you're breaking many smaller objects; stack them tightly and it's closer to trying to break one solid object.

I really want to commit to a training programme like this, but i cannot stop eating dominos pizza, drinking speckled hen ale, masturbating and.......masturbating.

I'm sure if i spent my entire life training like these guys I could do this.   
   
Its not that their special, its just they spend pretty much everyday from age 8 to be able to do this 						****					. Its impressive, sure, but anyone can do it with training.

well... pretty much anything can be done with training, so I don't really see your argument.

It'd be so neat to go live with them for a year or so.

I may start a stupid ********* , but i want to know opinions upon the always hot "MMA Fighter VS Shaolin Monk".



Now, i' talking a REAL Shaolin Monk, not someone who studied Shaolin Kung Fu.
#33 to #31 - funnyjunkyeahyeah (08/05/2014) [-]
Hard to say. MMA is more dedicated to fighting than shaolin, but I would bet that the shaolin are more dedicated to their art than MMA fighters.

Would probably come down to the individuals.

I'm not sure if you're serious given how your comment is worded, but for other people I believe the main reason is for body control. You can do amazing things if you can control your body amazingly well.
