John LaTourette is a Slapster
I've hear a lot of things about how fast this dude is and I'm sure many of you have heard the claims about this speedman who can hit 16+ times per second.
I've been curious about this guy for quite some time, so I began looking into how exactly one could possibly sprike so quickly. Finally I found a website (http://home.att.net/~erik.mann/jlat.htm) that reviews some of LaTourette's expensive home videos, and come to find out, he is in fact a slapster. Apparently LaTourette's speed strikes consist of "alternate going back and forth in a slapping motion with both hands VERY RAPIDLY, criss cross both hands as you do this, making sure you slap with the palm side and backside of each hand". You know, kinda like The Three Stooges.
I guess since strike number is so important and actually hurting your opponent with said strikes doesn't seem to be a factor, you might as well wiggle your fingers with each blow while you're at it and count each fingertip contact as a strike too...
Also, LaTourette's official website (http://www.thespeedman.com/) is kinda funny. Especially the credentials section where he seems to pull many of his Dans and promotions out of nowhere.
