An Impressive Display of Failure

Breaking sticks is not a job for an amateur. It takes years of training and dedication to your craft before you can use one of the largest bones in your body to break a fucking stick that your average four-year old would have broken down to shards after an hour of typical use.

Despite the massive failure on display in this video, we have to give the instructor at least some credit. He certainly talks an impressive game, even going so far as to blame the ridiculous shorts he’s wearing on the fact that he needs his shin to be exposed for full stick breaking effectiveness reasons. This had all the makings of personal highlight reel footage for awhile there. But then, he tries to break the stick. It’s just one sad display of futility after that. And we love it.
