Chip Townsend set a world record at the 2016 World Martial Arts Championships at Disney World, destroying four wooden baseball bats with one kick. According to ESPN, the previous record was three. Townsend was pumped.

Townsend makes this look really easy and you’re probably thinking "the handle of the bat is the weakest point," but as Melchor Menor demonstrated on The Ultimate Fighter, breaking even a single bat is very difficult (and painful).
