This is legit. The swords are really going through his body. I heard Tim Cridland, better known as Zamora-The Torture King, talk about this guy. There is a way of piercing your body like that an avoiding internal organs. I seem to recall that this guy did it wrong once and it killed him. That's show business.

Carefully. VERY carefully. As I said, this stunt killed him.

You'd sure have to have a lot of confidence in the guy pushing the sword through. I mean, what if he sneezes?

Yours,

Todd, I did a search on Tim Cridland and found an interview with him:

Quote:
A. One thing that I have said that I would like to do is the sword through the body stunt that was performed by Mirn Dajo in Switzerland in the late 1940s. He would have someone run him completely through with a sharpened fencing style sword. It would go all the way through the center of the body at various places. He was studied extensively by doctors and was 100% for real. I have recently made contact with the grandson of the guy who pushed the sword through Dajo. He informs me that he is still alive at 90 years of age and has just completed a book on Dajo. I plan to travel to Europe to meet with him.




So I did a search for "Mirn Dajo" and it appears he is the guy in the video. Found a few still pictures of him, including an x-ray:

All I can say is if Tim Cridland wants to bring this act back, he is crazier than all ya'all freaks put together - this has to be the most dangerous sideshow stunt ever!

You can also get fiberglass anvils and foam rubber anchors at Penguin too, or so I've heard.

From what I've heard he swallowed a ladies shoe,and hoped that through his own inner strenght his stomach would digest the shoe.Sadly it didn't and he died.

I always wondered about this guy. I have used a shorter version of that clip for a couple of years in a video show I do sometimes. It always gets attention and freaks people out.

All I can say is wow... Its interesting how we think that this is the most "extream of times" and here theres this guy 65 years ago literly skewering himself on stage. Its mind bending. How do you work up to that sort of thing? Its just unreal. I love it.

As the Great Nippled One would say, "Well, that's shoe business."
