Wow. Fast.

I took Karate back in the day, and I remember my Sensei saying that I had pretty fast hands, but nothing like this. Damn.

    He was fast, but massively inaccurate. He couldn’t even hit the guy once! If it was me, I would’ve said, “Quit touching my hands and arms all weird.” And then I would have punched him in the nose.

    Wow..
    I dont’ want that guy hitting me…
    He actually was crazy fast…
    I just wonder could he actually make every one of those strikes count
    if he really had to hit him for real…
    I know he could, but I still want to see it.

    Hey it’s trick photography–they just sped up the camera to make it look fast. He wasn’t even really hitting the guy.

    Fast? Yes, quite? Real video? Not sure. I didn’t detect any speed altering… the camera angles didn’t seem to flicker or bolt, but who knows. Either way, I guess the strikes are not particularly intentional. Perhaps he has in advance set out a set of 6 or 10 strikes that can be delivered in succession very fast. He has practiced these for months until a perfect, speedy flow is attained. However, it is simply a miniature kata… just moves. If any reaction was changed, or the opponent raised his arms, the moves would not be altered to match and maintain accuracy and speed. It is shadow boxing of short duration, just to show arm movement. Obviously the guy wasn’t trying to demonstrate proper fighting skills, furthermore, and the sheer speed is impressive if not feigned by video trickery.
