Shanghai Martial Artist Sets Guinness World Record Playing Ping Pong With Nunchaku

A martial arts coach in China set a new Guinness World Record for hitting 32 table tennis balls using only a nunchaku, a traditional weapon consisting of two sticks connected by either a chain or rope.

Xie Desheng, a 28-year-old martial arts coach in the Shanghai paramilitary police, was able to hit 32 table tennis balls with his nunchucks, setting a new world record, according to Shanghaiist.

 

However, one critique is that Xie wasn’t actually playing table tennis as he didn’t play with another person and only hit the table tennis balls using the nunchaku.

This is not the first Guinness World Record under Xie’s belt, as he also holds two other records, The Paper reported.

He also extinguished 52 candles in under one minute using only the same weapon on June 26, 2019.
