    Most players can hit a 93mph baseball with a bat.
    So I`m not very impressed.

    Yes, but are they drawing that bat from a sheath on their belt? Didn`t think so.

    "Yes, but are they drawing that bat from a sheath on their belt? Didn`t think so."

    The motion of drawing it from a sheath is no more time consuming than bringing the bat down from a shoulder.

    There are two parts that could be considered impressive in this stunt. First, being able to draw the sword and make contact with the 93 mile an hour ball. Assuming that the pitching machine is regulation distance from the batter, I find this to be no more impressive than a baseball player hitting a fast ball. It is impressive, as not everyone can hit a 93 mile an hour target, but I don`t find it super impressive.

    Second, the ball being sliced by a samurai sword. Given that samurai swords are designed to cut off peoples heads, among other things, I don`t find slicing a baseball in half any more impressive than any other stunt with a samurai sword. Given, however, that I can`t use a samurai sword to slice off anything, I`ll say this is impressive, but no more impressive than norm

    Jeez, IAB is getting bitchy these days! I actually train with samurai swords, so I know that drawing one from its sheath is not as easy as swinging something from your shoulder. It may not be time consuming, but it takes a helluva lot more coordination. Also, I never said the actual cutting was difficult. Now go back to your basement and nitpick someone else`s comments.

    he looked as surprised as everybody else when that happened. i can imagine that all he really was doing was yanking his sword out and hoping it hits the ball.


    btw what is it with everyone else handing out internets? especially when they arent really important enough to be giving out that kinda prize

    Davy, the point of keeping the sword in the sheath is so that your enemy doesn`t even know you`re about to use it. That`s how samurai train. They`re supposed to be fast enough that you don`t even know they`re attacking you before it`s over.
    And while this is amusing and awesome, I`m sure any black-belt kendo student should be able to do the same. It only takes a decade to learn.

    But why isn`t anyone pointing out the obvious? If the Japanese can do THIS, why do they suck at baseball?

    "Nice gimmick. Personally, if I was going to fight someone, I`d have my sword already out. That`s just me though."

    its a japanese thing where they have their swords still in the sheathes, when you pull it out like that, it scrapes against the inside and makes it so that u can draw the sword faster. Thankyou Rurouni Kenshin

    Am I the only one who had to pause the video after the first swing to read what it said? probably. It read: "one strike, one strike" and "nice swing, nice swing". I don`t know why they had to say it twice.

    Still, the previous post with this guy was more impressive.

    Is it that much harder to hit a ball with a sword than it is with a bat?

    BTW, a pitching machine makes enough noise that you can predict 1-2 sec. in advance exactly when the ball is coming, so he can start drawing the sword before the ball is released. This also could have been 1 of 20 takes.

    it would be easier since the sword is most balanced and has a fast swing speed. but still cool

    You know, I think I could do that. Especially with a pitching machine that throws the ball straight and almost in the same place everytime. All you need is one solid hit and with the ball going so fast, it would do most of the work. I may have to swing the sword like a baseball bat, but I think I could do it. Probably not though, but it doesn`t seem that difficult.

    Let see him do it with a curveball.

    They won the World Baseball Classic that included an all-star team from the U.S. and all the baseball loving Latin American countries. So, they`re pretty good.

    coeshcoesh, they hvae subtitles because different parts of japan have different dialects, so its there to help you understand. i think.

    its like italy. each region, hell each town, has different dialects. but there is a uniform italian which most can understand

    sorry, but isnt that the same as being able to hit a baseball with a bat? I understand that drawing the sword adds a bit of difficulty, but it seems like any little league baseball playing kid could do that.

    Just sayin`
