Check out this amazing video of a Shaolin monk walking on water for 125 meters, using 200 floating plywood planks.

Shi Liliang is from the Quanzhou Shaolin Temple, and it took him three attempts to break his previous record of 120 meters, set in January.

Last October, he set a record of 118 meters.

"You need to be fast but you should take only small steps," Shi told reporters back then.

The stunning stunt requires perfect balance and huge speed to carry out, and the monk has been practising it since 2005.

The Shaolin Monastery is well known for its kung fu monks that undergo rigorous training to conduct impressive acrobatic and physical feats.
