Japanese Samurai Engage In Sword Fighting Midair Using Jetpacks
As much as Samurai warriors may have liked to fight in a traditional way they are constantly looking at ways to develop their skills and fighting techniques to adapt to modern technologies.
Jetpacks are lightweight and highly maneuverable and can land on confined spaces which makes it ideal for sword fighting. However Samurai warriors admit the equipment is still in early stages of development and may have to wait till 2020 to witness full fledged duel.
There are two things that people associate with Japan history, Samurai and technology. This clip features a stunt sponsored by telecommunications giant SoftBank, showing two men dressed in traditional Samurai clothing wearing jetpacks and engaging in a sword fight while floating in the air. How incredible is that?!
Reportedly, SoftBank has suggested this could be a future sport, but we sure don’t expect to be in the list of competitions at the 2020 Olympics. Watch this both awesome and silly video and collect ideas for your Halloween costume. We cannot help but wonder whether their mid-air flying is genuine or visual trickery? However, this incredible stunt has gone viral in no time.
Take a look at the Samurai standing on the right, the warrior wearing the dark hakama, he seems to be a more experienced fighter, as he emerges victorious from their clash. Upon winning, he celebrated his victory over his opponent up in the air, like a real pro! Of course, it seems like the video was filmed using special effects, especially the steam coming out of men’s jetpacks. Nonetheless, it is still a lot of fun to watch and it is indeed epic!
Featuring two men dressed like Samurai engaging in fierce sword fight mid air has sure made our day! What do you think about this crazy clip? Would you try flying midair with the help of jetpacks just for the sake of cosplay?
