Kung Fu nuns of Nepal August 26, 2019

The nuns of the Buddhist Drukpa Order in Nepal practice martial arts. They train three hours daily and can break bricks with their bare hands.

After a powerful earthquake struck the Himalayan nation in 2015 the nuns went into action and delivered supplies to hard-to-reach villages. They also teach self-defense classes to other women and have biked around the country for anti-human trafficking awareness campaigns.
