Pretty common in karate. Mamoru Yamamoto used to fold aluminum bats.

I'm gonna let you finish Melchor Menor, but Frank Dux had one of the best kicks all time.

It was cringe worthy enough with the first two taps.

That must sting, but I bet the pain is nothing compared to when the bat or board does NOT break.

I have broken bats with kick. At the best of times it hurts. I have nothing but respect for the guys that fails the first attempt and akes it on the second attempt.

 

5m.50s take a look at Kakudas shin after the break

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.

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

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

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.

LOL @ the noobs who thought this was something new.
Kyokushin karate black belts have been doing this for decades.

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)
