Reuben de Jong is a heavyweight kickboxer from New Zealand. You may remember him as Calthrop from the "Cursed" episode of Legend of the Seeker, though.
Well, Calthrop recently took those, and other, skills to China in an effort to break the running-through-panes-of-glass world record. Calthrop failed. Fantastically. On live TV. In the land of 1.3 billion. And then he said things would have been different in his country.
The action starts two minutes into the video.
