10 Powers Monks Have in Real Life

When you’re a little kid, there’s nothing better than pretending to be a super hero or movie character when you’re out playing with your friends. Maybe you are a Transformer one day and an X-Man the next. Our imaginations let us be whoever we wanted to. At the end of the day, however, we were simply scrawny little kids and we knew it. That didn’t stop us from wishing we had super powers and special skills. After all, we knew ninjas were real and they could some incredible things. Then there were all those other groups of warriors that used martial arts to fight. Maybe we pretended we could do kung-fu or karate. Yes, to a kid, if you could do a karate chop and a spinning kick then you were basically a full-fledged ninja warrior.
One group we likely didn’t pretend to be was warrior monks. You know, those mysterious bald-headed figures that lived in temples buried deep in the forest or high in the mountains. Well, it turns out those guys can really do some things that will blow your mind. Through incredible discipline and training, monks around the world are able to perform feats and get their bodies to do things that don’t really seem possible. From mind-blowing strength and balance to the ability to take unbelievable physical punishment and continue on like nothing had happened – there are some monks who have demonstrated near super power abilities you’d expect to see from Batman or Wolverine. Take a look for yourself and see if you can do any of these.
