At the 2013 Shinkyokushinkai karate competition earlier this month in Canada (I think?), some young chap does a karate kick straight out of a computer game and actually pulls it off. It’s Street Fighter-esque for sure. I didn’t play street fighter much myself, I was more of a Tekken kind of guy. But this kick is incredible. I always wanted to do some sort of martial art, and the perfect picture of myself that I hold in my brain still would like me to be a ninja. Unfortunately I don’t like getting hit or kicked in the face. So it sort of rules me out.
So this kid called Moskalenko Semyon does a mental spinning kick (not sure on the terminology here folks) and knocks his opponent right out. Seeing as I have no technical info regarding karate to give you I will shut up and let you enjoy the violence.
And just in case you are enjoying the ruckus, here’s a video of a guy who’s on the chubbier end of the scale doing a lightning fast spinning kick. Impressive and strange all in one cream bun:
