|Geologist and martial artist, readies to go underground|
in an Arizona copper mine. Soke Hausel is more
than just a rockhound.
But this is no ordinary geologist. He teaches his students to break rocks with their hands and has entertained at half-time at various basketball games breaking tiles and cinder blocks with his hands and even broke one large slab of rock with his head in front of a few thousand basketball fans at the University of Wyoming.
