SAN DIEGO -- Anyone who has taken a stroll down Seaport Village has probably come across the balancing rocks.

10News decided to track down the man behind the rocks. His name is Rabi Sarkar and he is originally from Kolkata.

Sarkar works along the shore, placing rocks in formations that look like they could topple with the gentlest of breezes. But they don't. So how does he do it?

“For 27 years I’ve been a Reiki master,” Sarkar said.  

Reiki is the practice of using the "life force energy" that flows through people.

If you've seen the original Karate Kid – you know Mr. Miyagi uses his hands to heal Daniel San's leg in the final tournament.

Rabi says he uses that same concentration and exchange of energy to balance the rocks.
