This might actually be the dumbest thing we’ve ever seen on our Martial Arts Fail of the Week segment.
I know we say that a lot, but we’ve never actually laughed harder at a martial arts video. Watching a fat kid running forwards at full speed while moving his hands like he was trying to juggle the air itself had us in tears.
We couldn’t really find out a whole lot about these guys. The first time we watched the video (which was sent to us on Twitter, by the way) we actually thought it was a parody. We couldn’t believe people actually trained in this stuff and thought it was legit. Then we remembered Balinese White Magic, Ashida Kim, and Bo Fung Do. So yeah, it’s probably safe to say this isn’t some kind of parody of ridiculous martial arts videos and that the people in the video believe in what they’re doing.
Our investigating turned up hardly any information. Another account uploaded this video and referred to it as “Russian slap fighting.” When we searched that term, it was just a bunch of other sites posting the same video. Maybe these slap fighters are a mysterious breed who can only be seen IRL by those who are worthy. Or maybe their school folded because their bullshido made students look like mimes on speed rather than bad ass action heroes. Who knows.
Anyway, enjoy the video, Potato Nation.
If you see any video that’s good (or bad) enough to make the cut, let us know! Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
