    karate vs. archery

    Done a search and couldn't find this being posted before.

    This is from Ripley's Believe It or Not - a fat McDojo instructor attempts to catch an arrow, then does it blindfolded.

    It's actually moderately impressive in a useless circus trick kind of way. I'm not sure it's something I'd spend my time learning though. The action starts at about 4 min 30 into it.

    That video froze a lot of times, it was really anooying.

    Anyway, this is an old parlor trick, and it's always done with a low poundage bow shooting a very heavy arrow - look how far down his scope is just to reach 75 feet. Also notice around 4:30 how many fletches he has on the arrow, in addition to how large they are. 100mph is very sluggish by any standards, especially for a compound bow.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Well, if nothing else, at least the vid is good for seeing the cuteness of Kelly Packard

    Yeah, I noticed when he caught it it seemed to be on a pretty steep downward trajectory.

    when it hit his arm the arrow bounced off, I don't know much about archery but I don't think it was designed to do that...

    The archer normally makes a noise of some kind with his foot that the performer uses to time his catch, too.

    I don't think that's necessary here, compounds tend to be noisy enough on their own.
