A martial arts master entered the Guinness records hall of fame as he set a new height lighting 21 matches using nunchucks in just one minute, as seen in the footage filmed at his martial arts club in Shanghai on Wednesday.

Coach Xie Desheng, who teaches young men the martial art of Kung Fu using nunchucks, decided to go further in mastering the ancient technique. The young guru developed several skills, including putting out candles lit and set in a row, which is also demonstrated in the footage.

"I have been working with nunchucks since 2009. I was inspired by the martial arts movies, in which the hero put out the candles with the hidden weapons", explained coach Xie, adding that his previous record was for putting out 70 candles in a minute, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China.
