Kung Fu master does Headstand on Metal Pin after practicing for 20 years

Next time you have a sore head, spare a thought for Li Xin who has quite literally hit the nail on the head.

Don"t try this at home unless you"re a thick-skinned Kung Fu expert with incredible balance and a high threshold for pain.

Xin entertained the crowds when he balanced on his head on the end on a spike.
Putting his hands out to the side, he balanced all his 66kg (10st 7lb) body weight, putting intense pressure on his skull.

The 47-year-old has practised the stunt for more than 20 years. He can hold the pose on top of the spike for more than ten seconds – impressive, seeing as most people would struggle to keep their balance doing a floor head-stand.

After the stunt, Li Xin leaned forward to show off a small but definite indent on the top of his head.
It’s not just his head that is as hard as nails – he also balanced all his body weight on a similar spike against his stomach. The spike was placed on a stool and Li Xin pulled back his shirt and lowered his body onto the spike.

He then lifted his arms and legs in the air, holding a starfish pose.
The likelihood of this spike piercing his skin is reduced because the end is shaped into a larger blunt arrow, meaning there is more surface area for Li Xin to balance upon.
The folk artist was taking part in a stunt event in Nanning, China.
