Watch a martial artist throw a needle through a pane of glass

The Slow Mo Guys invited three Shaolin monks on to throw a needle through a piece of glass in super slow mo, and it's quite interesting to watch at that speed.

Now before people start complaining that Mythbusters busted this, the needles do not appear to be typical sewing needles, but special weighted throwing needles that could be tipped with poison if desired. It also appears the needle punctures but does not travel through the glass, and shards of glass, not the needle itself, typically pop the balloon held on the other side.
