Real Samurai Sword Technique

Isao Machii of Japan is a real-life modern-day samurai who started honing his unbelievable sword skills when he was a child. Hee was taught by an old master from the age of 5 and has now graduated to become the headmaster of a samurai school.

Isao Machii's sword skills have become so accurate that he claims he can slice a tiny pellet when shot at him from a BB gun. All of this action happens at such an incredible speed that it is almost impossible for the human eye to register. In order to capture this amazing feat on screen, Daniel uses one of the world's most sophisticated high-speed cameras for slow-motion analysis.

holy s***!
He must have drawn the sword not when the gun was fired, but just before it was fired, that is immense!
