In one of the best displays of hand-eye coordination that I’ve ever seen, a master swordsman destroys a 100mph fastball. His name is Isao Machii, and I wouldn’t want to get on his bad side!

The ball is completely destroyed, chopped in half. The end of the video showing the slow-motion perspective shows just how incredible it is. I had to watch it two or three times.

His patience and humility areĀ also something we should all try to learn from, as he simply waits, does his job, then walks off triumphant yet reserved.
