Crutching Tiger

croatiantimes.com

It's a splits decision on whose most at risk here - the kung fu master perched more than a thousand feet over a sheer drop, or the tourist coming eye to eye with his crutching tiger.

Martial arts expert Zhang Lan has spent 10 years studying as a Taoist monk at the cliffside temple in central China's Wudang mountains, where the hit movie Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was filmed.

Now he can perform the art's most dangerous stunt, a one-legged vertical splits perched on a narrow fence above a chasm in Shiyan, Hubei province.

"I clear my mind until there is only me and what I am standing on," explained Zhang.

"There is no fall, no mountain, no people and no fence. Just me and what my foot is touching," he added.
