    I was looking up some panantukan videos, and I came across this guy. It always bothers me when people think moving really fast is more important than good mechanics.

    If he's cold enough to wear a hat and gloves, you would think he would start with a shirt.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Man some of those Youtubers are harsh with their commentary, though..

    I couldn't help but LOL at this particular one:

    .............//)...........(\`\
    ............/....//..............\\....\
    .........../....//................\\....\
    .....//..../\.........../`\....\`\
    .././.../..../..../.|_......_|.\....\....\...\.\..
    (.(....(....(..../.)..)..(..(.\....)....)....).)
    .\................\/.../....\...\/................/
    ..\................. /........\................../
    ....\..............(............)............../

    When I shadowbox, I don't really go for speed per se, I try to exaggerate the movements and get the right form. I start of slow and get faster as I go.

    On a more serious note -

    * WTF is up with his stance?
    * I find his lack of breathing disturbing
    * He doesn't seem to have much range or speed, so basically what does he think he could do? Stand in close and throw weak flurries whilst neither breathing nor defending? I think he's a potential candidate for a Darwin Award.

    I don't know if he's intentionally trying to be funny or if he actually does take himself seriously, but if he did, it would make the vid title "BARE KNUCKLE DIRTY BOXING STREET FIGHTER TIP" all the more hilarious.

    Also, reading the comments gave me a good 10 minutes of laughter.
