Drop Everything And Watch This Shaolin Monk Puncture Glass by Throwing a Needle


The slow-motion replays are so, so good!

MIKE MCRAE 28 FEB 2018

There are apparently 72 arts you need to master as a Shaolin monk, and according to the accomplished masters in this video, being able to throw a needle hard enough to pierce a sheet of glass is among the hardest skills to conquer.

We'll take their word on it. But to be truly impressed by this feat, you really need to watch the process when it's slowed down to a few thousand frames per second.

Gav and Dan the guys behind the YouTube channel 'The Slow Mo Guys' invited a trio of Shaolin monks to put their talent on display in front of their Phantom v2511 camera.

The v2511 can record film at rates of more than 25,000 frames per second, which is plenty slow enough to see the needle hit home and the tiny splinters of glass fly.
