That was just riduculous. It makes me feel skillless.

He must live on those rails man, I would love to see his hands also...

That was just insane.

Good lord that was absolutely spectacular. Like OKCT, I could have done without the 7 minute intro, but certainly don't mind especially since the second half more than made up for it.

Mindblowing really :D

I agree. At times I felt like I was watching a dream. Other times I felt like I was watching something so finally tuned and precise that it couldn't be human. It was more like a machine or a freak monster from a horror movie, you know, the ones that defy space and time by walking on walls or ceilings and moving as if in fast forward while occasionally skipping through a few milliseconds at a time.

Holy shit.

To me it looks like what happens when someone unconstrained by definitions or techniques just moves. Also, what can be achieved by training hard as hell all the time. Just stunning.

The most impressive barwork I have ever seen.  If i were a bettin' man I'd say he got to train with some awesome acrobats during the Madonna Tour. So creative, just goes to show how the world opens up and so many more things ae possible once you reach the next level!

Its scary to imagine how good this guy is.
I am the young man, full of strength and hope,
Tangled in that ancient endless chain
Of profit, power, gain, of grab the land!
Of grab the gold! Of grab the ways of satisfying need!
Of work the men! Of take the pay!
Of owning everything for one's own greed!

you know you're badass when you can get away with a seven minute intro
