How to Punch Through Concrete





Introduction: How to Punch Through Concrete

About: I like turning boring things into awesome things! Usually on video.

This video demonstrates how to punch through concrete blocks using a gauntlet that adds weight and a reinforced impact point to the wearers fist. The added weight allows the speed of the punch to count for extra in total force. It's like swinging a hammer instead of a stick.

I can't see the video

These would be great breaching tools

That would actually be pretty great

How dangerous are these like if I got int a fight (not intentionally) would I be able to defend myself with them if I had them on me at the time.

A single punch could snap bone.. Soo..

I love the video
You could be the hulk with those

Well done and easy to follow instructions. Finally, something to do with that odd assortment of materials I have. If anyone in Tampa wants to make these I have TONS of this type of supplies.

I did this. It a very fun project and it works well. I really like your videos and i will try to do more

Awesome design, perfect for a starter base on my assassin's glove

I'm gonna assume this isn't a final version, so...
Try adding knuckle protection and a fold-out blade that pops behind your elbow, so that for when, in the video, you popped the gauntlet forward, you'd have a blade. Also, in a combat situation, you'd have extra force for punching and an elbow knife for quick dispatches.

Lol it would be awsome if you can punch through bricks lol take down houses with your fists :DD

the power of Chuck Norris has almost been harnessed into gauntlets LOL

now all you need to do is make them for your feet!

nice work! though i have a suggestion, perhaps you could screw velcro straps to the gauntlet, alowing you to tighten the gauntlet and give you a better grip.

well dude, if you use a heat gun you can make the PVC pipe a lot easier to work with.
overall a cool little instructable

add some knuckle busters and the pyro system that shoots flame and a assasins creed hidden blade then well then that would be awesome.
