We don’t have a ton of information to go on in regards to this week’s Martial Arts Fail. All we know is that a guy named Lev Ivanov (not THAT Lev Ivanov) uploaded this video (and a bunch of others) to Facebook, claiming they’re a badass example of the martial art Systema. The video itself is pretty great. It’s just some fat dude living out his fantasy of being a super awesome Jedi and flinging padawans around with the force like it’s nobody’s god damn business.
A quick Google search for “Lev Ivanov systema” only yielded this Facebook page and other Facebook pages sharing these videos — and then a ton of links to the more famous Lev Ivanov, a Russian ballet dancer.
But we urge you to watch all of this dude’s videos because they’re all equally horrific. Take this one, for example:
So is this the worst Martial Arts Fail of the Week yet? Maybe not — Ashida Kim and and the Balinese white magic guy might’ve been worse.
And by the way, thanks to Joachim U. for the tip!
