Record for Breaking Concrete Blocks with Hands

A karate-chopping strongman from Cornwall has smashed the record for breaking concrete blocks with your bare hands. Ed Byrne, a 40-year-old martial arts master, chopped 55 granite and concrete edging stones in 4.86 seconds using his hand.

This is a new World record for breaking most concrete blocks by bare hands. The earlier record was of 17.49 seconds.

Byrne said: "I used to break things when I was a kid for fun with my friends and I would break things easily whereas my friends wouldn't.

Wat's next? Ed Byrne hopes to break more blocks in one stack than ever before with a single strike. The record currently stands at 31 slabs of concrete in one chop. Link
