Jason Statham may have started the #BottleCapChallenge but he is up with a very tough competition with Donnie Yen now in the picture. The viral challenge with prompted stars like Conor McGregor, John Mayer, and MMA fighter Max Holloway among many others to take up the challenge which, needless to say, was perfectly executed will now see a raise in the par because ‘The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has beat his predecessors by kicking off the bottle cap blindfolded.

Yen, 55, shared a video of himself on Instagram on Wednesday in which he showed off his impressive martial arts skills by popping off a bottle cap while blindfolded with pure martial finesse.
Sharing the video, Yen, "Chirrut feeling the force + Ip man’s steady aim + no plastic bottle = the universe strongest." Yen played Chirrut Imwe in Rogue One and has also been the lead of Ip Man series and hence mentioned the two in his caption.
We last saw Yen as Chirrut Îmwe in 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a blind warrior who believed all things were connected through the Force and was known for repeating the mantra, “I’m one with the Force; the Force is with me’’. For the film, Yen wore contacts that made it almost impossible to see while filming. “That was difficult, a lot more difficult than I Expected,” he told PEOPLE in December 2016.
Now, isn’t that impressive?
