Koen scharrenberg, head of the european branch of Shin-kyokushin, breaking 23 bats (one at a time) to set a new record. I think the guy walking in with him is his brother Wim Scharrenberg, former kyokushin&kick/thaiboxer -now trainer for the dutch kyokushin national team and some Pro kick/thaiboxers (Falidr Chahbari most notably)

Banana plants are not actually trees. They do not have a wooden trunk, but rather a stem. It is flexible, soft and not at all like a real tree.   That said, there are guys who train by kicking and punching real trees (0,37 sec mark) Here is Hatsuo Royama of Kyokushin karate in a old clip, conditioning knuckles on a pine tree. I have better clips of kyokushin punching and kicking trees as knuckle&shin conditioning, but sadly not available online.

It's real, but they use banana trees, much softer, more flexible bark. Still pretty savage, though

Okay Kung Fu flicks aside, does anyone know if some of those folks from the 3rd world (Thailand, Phillipines etc.) really used to kick trees with their shins to make them harder? I tried that when I was teen and even when done someone what gently is a bitch.

That's how powerful it was, it got the wrong result on Google.
