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.

Parts:
10" Strap Hinge
1' x 3" Foam Core PVC
4" x 1/2" PVC
One 5 1/2" x 1/2" Bolt & Nut to Fit
Two 1" x 3/8" Round Head Allen Screws & Lock Nuts to Fit
Four 1/2" Washers
One 4" x 3/8" Bolt
One 2" x 3/8" Bolt & Nut to Fit

Tools:
Hand Saw
Drill & Bits
Box End Wrenches
Allen Wrenches
Sand Paper or Bench Grinder

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.

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'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.

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.
