Getting trained to be a soldier is no mean feat anywhere in the world but this North Korean propaganda video wants the world to know that their soldiers tip the scales of strength and endurance.
In the clip, soldiers from the hermit kingdom can be seen hitting bricks with their heads and breaking solid and heavy slabs of concrete with nothing more than human might.
The trainee fighters have boulders thrown at them and even have to throw themselves at panes of glass.
The video, complete with blood-pumping music, is from 2014 but surfaced online just recently.
Video quality notwithstanding, North Korea is all about propaganda videos. Not long ago, they released one showing an imaginary invasion of the United States. Then there was the one that showed the "Capitalist Society Growing Darker."
Every now and then their propaganda media comes up with a video that shows a strong and nuclear-armed North Korea destroying Washington, burning U.S. President Barack Obama and the American flag or sometimes showing how democracy has failed in America.
