    I think this is precisely this acceleration that makes him able to trasform his strength in energy so that he has enough power to break the glass.
    Make sense ?

    How exactly does throwing needles at glass qualify as `religious study`? I mean what is the frakkin point, if you`re going to do that, fine, get out of the pumpkin suit and up on stage and go do it and make some money. But if you`re a monk, throwing needles at glass is the last thing you`re supposed to be doing.

    well in Duffytoler`s defence these `needles` can be pretty big and heavy

    Martial Arts : How to

    and imo that glass is wafer thin. which is why there is a large wad of newspaper needed to clamp the pane without it breaking

    @Lionhart2

    The ability to do that requires great control and a steady hand. Its not the ACT that is religious study. The act is a RESULT of the religious study... complete synchronization of mind, body, and spirit... These monks spend decades of their lives finding that perfect alignment. They believe that if a person is aware of this balance and able to manipulate it, that person becomes a perfect representation of the image in which God meant man to resemble... He can do anything. They believe the ability to perform these acts is proof that a higher level of humanity exists...
