    ... and they think this is badass

    This is a forms competition in Paris. I am pretty sure some (if not most) of you have seen this before. Not only is this guy trying to be Ryu or somebody in street fighter with the "SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORYUKEN" being screamed during his kata competition, but the audience is acting like this is the most 4W3SUM thing they have seen evar. Athletic and skilled? Yes. Save your ass in the ghetto when you wake up after a night of drinking and find yourself wearing Klan robes? Not so much. But I digress. I like kata and most of what I have done in both Kung-fu and TKD had a "realistic" base to them (whether it would work in real life notwithstanding), but this **** is just gymnasticts.

    Be sure to check the idiots comments below on Youtube. :eatbabies

    That makes my brain hurt.

    More screams per movement than any other competitor. You win.

    The fact that he timed it to street fighter sound effects and actually did a shoryuken makes it pretty amusing.

    When you are spotter and straight you can do a lot more than that.

    That guy is impressively fast, flexible, and agile. If he could fight, he could totally kick my ass.

    Fortunately, I didn't see any evidence of fighting ability in that clip.
