Kung Fu Expert Beats The Crap out of Mobsters

From “The Telegraph U.K.”:

Chinese thugs knocked out by amateur Kung Fu fans
“So when 38-year-old Shen Jianzhong was faced with a mob of thugs trying to evict him, he asked himself what his hero, Bruce Lee, would do.
The answer, according to a video that has attracted more than two million hits on the Chinese internet, is turn to kung fu.
For 20 years, Mr Shen had been practising kung fu, teaching himself Bruce Lee’s system in his courtyard home in Bazhou, Hebei province.
Working in a local gym as a fitness coach, he is also the holder of a world record, at least according to an association in Hong Kong, for the most press-ups in a minute using a roller. “I am now training to break the record for most press-ups on a balance beam,” he said.
At the end of October, Mr Shen was able to put his kung fu into action. For six months, a property developer had been trying to get his hands on Mr Shen’s house.
At first, the property company stuck up posters warning of dire consequences for any families who held out. Then, Mr Shen said, when 70 of the 100 households had left, the threats escalated.
“This mob of thugs would block the street most days. They would pick on the women, threatening to kill their kids. Then people started tossing bricks through windows and letting off fireworks at night. Some people got beaten on the street.”
On October 29, as Mr Shen went to work and his wife popped out for a packet of instant noodles, a mob of “30 to 50 men” materialised at their front door.
“My wife tried to close the door, but they pushed it back and she tripped over. That is how the fight started,” said Mr Shen.
With a flurry of kicks and punches, he and his 18-year-old son, a fellow kung fu devotee, set about the attackers, rendering seven of them near unconscious in the hallway.
“It was self defence. I really cannot remember what kung fu skills I used.
It was quite messy. Only seven people were injured because the rest were scared and stayed outside. Some of them ran away,” he said.
When the police arrived, however, they were little help, insisting that since the thugs were unarmed, it was Mr Shen and his family who were in the wrong. They urged the family to sign the contract.”

I saw the video- there were five or six guys laying around groaning in pain, all the action was over. Apparently this is becoming a big problem in China, with all the village renovation and greed of developers. One report I saw said that a homeowner had built his own mini cannon to shoot at developers and their thugs.

    The rolling device is a great piece of equipment for physical development. Did they say how many reps he did?
