    Slow-mo is creepy for things like this. Its like in cricket watching how much the bats wobble when they hit the ball - you just wonder when you see this much detail how everything just works.

    I chop concrete with a palm strike; the edge of the hand is not the best way do try it as you can see from all that wobble.
    With a palm strike the force is relayed through the wrist bones, which actually are designed to absorb some direct force (think falling and putting your hand out to stop yourself).

    Sounds like my OH "just goes down into his workshop and does it".

    I love the detail and that its still a functional basement.

    agree with the rest of the comment though, I also use palm strikes when doing useful tasks like that ;D
