I was thinking the exact same thing. What is a parent supposed to say to her after she says that she doesn’t want to go to bed because it’s not too late? “Whatever you say, Honey. Just don’t cut me.”

My daughter after hearing the GOP say that single women don't know how to vote without a husband to tell them. Edit: Ooh, the brigading by fascists to this comment is just spectacular! The private messages threatening violence are even better, happy to see some fascist accounts get banned. So sorry you guys are having a tough week, I'm sure you will all feel better after raging away on social media for a few years.

IsomDart

Is this a reference to the Worlds Greatest Freakout video where the dude shoves a remote control up his butt? I thought that was so hilarious back when I was a kid. Especially the part where he's rolling around in the covers and then all of a sudden is just naked somehow.


2morereps

man.. the times when youtube felt so organic. it's nice with the amount of content we have now, but back then everything felt so simple and uncomplicated or maybe I just grew up now and see the world for what it is.

Of course, when I do this at the park with a stick I'm a weirdo, but this kid does it and is a champion.

Sword beats stick. Also, the Aikido Gi beats Husky dog Fox furry suit for combat. So, there's that.


FredTillson

Husky frog dog furry suit you mean


u9Nails

LMAO! I have to Google that now!


PandaDemonipo

Everything that comes up are husky suits damnit, where's my husky frog hybrid?!


thereIsAHoleHere

Be the change you want to see.


Soviet_Ski

Depends on which treatises you’re studying. Fiore has a section teaches how to defend yourself with a stick, and if I remember correctly even states something along the lines of “use a tree branch to beat your attacker to death if you’ve not got a sword”


ashehudson

Pretty sure the use of a Jo staff style was developed to beat an elite swordsman.


Soviet_Ski

Yeah, all the “peasant” weapons are usually to deal with those pesky lords and soldiers who can afford swords. Fiore typically states the use of a rod of office or cane, and even has a section dedicated to what to do if you’re seated when attacked. There’s only like 1 paragraph dedicated to using literal sticks.


DefNotAShark

> Sword beats stick. I feel like there's some long-bearded old martial arts master who is patiently and eagerly waiting for the chance to disprove this claim to an overconfident pupil.


FormsForInformation

Hand beats stick and the cops are called

It’s because it’s not a stick you are swinging around and yelling Hiiyah at passing bystanders. It’s your…

Washoku_Otter

Iaido and Kendo practitioner here. This is over-the-top martial crazy. Cool, but a LOT wrong here. No sageo, scabbard is upside-down to start and her dropping it…Oof. Great Kata, but very Anime inspired. The kid is a badass, don’t get it twisted. But it’s kinda funny.


-_4DoorsMoreWhores_-

Kenjustu practitioner here, agreed. A fantastic dance routine. But definitely not a practical demonstration.


jimbowymbo

My cousin and I took that as well. They asked us to stop coming because we were just kicking each other for an hour straight. Turns out they prefer discipline in students.


Isthisworking2000

I took Tai Chi, I’m pretty sure the kid is the world master of 8 year olds with swords who gets critiqued to death by older practitioners.


chillwithpurpose

I certainly wouldn’t fuck with her


Equity89

Yes, don't fuck with kids please


bob_from_teamspeak

Beatsaber practitioner here. Could also be beatsaber. Looks exactly like what I imagine how I look while practicing my art.


Pristine-Moose-7209

Dorito and tamagotchi practitioner here. Her fingers and uniform were too clean and I didn't see any extra batteries in her routine.


longylegenylangleler

Mexican ground karate practitioner here. Fantastic dance, though it doesn’t look like her joints are aching enough, clearly not a realistic demonstration.


workerbee12three

so theres a competition for best anime style and one for best practical use?


Abstract__Nonsense

No, this just isn’t an iaido/kenjutsu competition, looks like it’s some sort of generic “martial arts weapon routine” competition that’s judged on theatrical effect.


UselessAdultKid

Martial arts video criticism practitioner with a couple of minutes of experience here, these two guys sound experienced, I totally agree. Ps. My mom is a black belt (3rd dan) in karate, and I'm sure she agrees too

Khiiizo

Kouchi-Sityng practitioner here. We call this in the Dojo Sherikkagan Style, only few people from from the same family line ( tree ) are able to achieve such discipline and power through the a sword to the point the breathe of the user sometimes its said (myth) spits fire ![img](emote|t5_m0bnr|4014). Amazing Kata, not sure if she is might be a lost extremely rare child from the family, nonetheless 10/10.


lowerbackpain2208

Almost all kata/poomsae have no practical application and are all for show. I don't see how this isn't any different. It was impressive and visually appealing to watch.


-_4DoorsMoreWhores_-

Kata absolutely have a practical application. Muscle memory is created during repetition. That's exactly what they're for. To practice the motions you'd go through when killing someone. It is not so simple as merely swinging your blade wildly. And you can tell that the way she does the forward grip cuts that she isn't attempting to mimic those movements. This is purely for show. And that's fine.


HerpDerpMcGurk

I haven’t practiced karate in over 20 years, but you better believe I can still run through most of my katas I won competitions with. Certainly could not do them well, but the muscle memory is absolutely still there.


Varulfrhamn

Which has some history to it. When your style is created to resist an authoritarian occupation force, you probably want to avoid writing stuff down. Kata are the memory of karate, the means by which you teach and record the style.


TheLordHumongous1

How you gonna learn how to swing a sword without practicing how to swing a sword?


gplusplus314

Dancer here. Agreed. Edit: “dance practitioner”


nickfree

I beginning to sense that Reddit doubts her commitment to Sparkle Motion. Or should I say [Mistah Spahkl-uh Motion](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiAaEPcnlOg).


deschainmusic

If I’m not mistaken, kenjutsu is live combat with actual katanas. Kendo is the sport


HearVoices

She's 6. Leave her alone.


culinarydream7224

Right on cue, we have the unsolicited opinions from the weeb delegation. They are unsurprisingly not impressed that a child is not combat ready with a Samurai sword... excuse me... *katana* Edit: Triggered the neckbeards. Apparently they can dish out the criticism to children, but can't take it.


Peachykinz

What are you even talking about dude


ders89

I think theyre just trying to point out it doesnt matter the context of a video, someone whos obsessed with anime or japanese culture will always downplay the talent displayed in the video to correct them on what was wrong with it. The equivalent to some couch potato trying to talk about what some professional athlete did wrong despite them literally practicing the sport daily. Its pretty rampant on reddit lol. Also theres like this weird dynamic where “weebs” are outspoken especially and people who hate on weebs are also outspoken. Idk man the internet is just filled with judgmental humans and hate and unnecessary bickering


hmmm_thought_pig

They specifically praised her talent and dance skills. They simply pointed out that this is not a martial arts championship, as advertised. Also, the music was hideous. That one's on me.


wwaxwork

Not just neckbeards for 3 weeks every 4 years my mother would become an expert on the most esoteric olympic sports. Then they started televising the Paralympics and she expanded into wheelchair spots expertise as well.

Jumper2002

Did you not read the post? They said that while it isn't practical in the real world, it is still impressive, they weren't discrediting the girl


MKQueasy

She didn't even release her Bankai. Pathetic.


SamsNation

There may have been a misunderstanding. He is not criticizing her, but her art. She is very talented and I am sure she will continue improving, but her moves are purely theatrical, no real power or use in the real world. Those who have practiced martial arts will know the difference, and he’s pointing it out. We’re not belittling her, but only pointing out the differences for the uninformed.


Revolutiong0g

Well aktually🤓


Tesgoul

The sub name is nextfuckinglevel. This video belongs here, but it's also fair that someone with actual knowledge points out it's just for show.


SomeIndividual1

you mean to tell me she is not going to win any war with that?


ScumEater

It's ludicrous that it even has to be said. In their head they're like, "Not realistic, I could take her."


Joe_Rapante

That's not what people are complaining about. There is traditional martial arts, you do kata to learn techniques, train muscles, meditate, etc. There is more fighting oriented martial arts, where you do this by shadow boxing, etc. Both have in common that you learn a martial art. Then there is ballet and Tae Bo. The girl is absolutely talented, but this was a dance routine. I did some karate 20 years ago and feel this way. Let me try it another way. I'm not sure where the current clinical trials on acupuncture stand. But even if you assume it's totally worthless, if some new fad emerges where people just stick needles in anywhere, even someone who thinks the original is bullshit, at least it follows a millennial old tradition.


Sparcrypt

Calm down mate. I’ve been doing various martial arts my entire life and not one single second of it has been to be able to “take” anyone. Nobody is immune to a conversation about their form *in a martial arts competition*. Like she’s six, so don’t shit all over it and keep it in context… but I’ve seen some six year olds with *amazing* form and technique. Super cool video and I hope she sticks with it. But it’s no big deal to discuss her form, it’s a competition which means form matters. Nobody here with any knowledge on the matter is threatened by a six year old having fun and every one of us would be cheering her on if we were there, it’s so cool to see kids get into this stuff. That said she probably could take me, I haven’t done much training with swords so yeah, off with my legs I guess.


stratosfearinggas

Conversely, here's 9 year old Mahiro Takano performing several Shotokan kata in Sia's music video. They are all done correctly and done with impressive skill. Criticizing the legitimacy/authenticity of what is being performed does not take away from the skill. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2NgsJrrAyM


Full_Increase8132

Anime practitioner here. Her form was terrible. At no point did her hair change color. She never held a rose to her face while reciting her intro speech. The background never went crazy-colors while she was motionless and drifted across the screen. She could beat me up though, so points for that.


cs_legend_93

Curazan

>Actually, if you look closely with a professional eye, this 6-year-old girl is actually not an expert.


KyleThePale

Years of karate experience myself (YCOA, so of course a mixed bag), and yeah despite this being more flashy than a regular kata, she clearly has a lot of talent and does know good technique. Her kicks were on point. I would love to see her do a more traditional kata because I have a feeling she'd even put some black belts to shame.


WhenLeavesFall

She did a Chun Li rapid kick. That was wild


mr9025

I mean sure. I don't think that the point is so much to show that she's a competent and combat effective child-warrior. I think It's just a fun demonstration of a little girl really putting her mind into learning something that is less often expected of little girls, and pulling it off really well and really seeming to enjoy and find accomplishment in it. I think it's OK if it's not perfect form if enjoying it inspires her to keep learning and growing in the craft. Plus the dedication on display here implies that she could really have a future as a martial artist with continued training.


natehellsing

joneszen

I came here to say something similar, it's impressive for any age but more so for someone so young. And Kung Fu does a similar "extra" thing with its Wu Shu tournament sets. However I'm astonished at the level of her aggressiveness. If I yelled like that at the end of a set I'd burst a vein in my forehead and have a stroke.


jtnxdc01

Just an ordinary martial arts practitioner here w/ a few decades experience. The kid is absolutely awesome! Forget the dogma, she's not even a teenager yet. Huge kudos to her! My kids might win in an unarmed fight (testosterone inspired comment 🤣) but who really cares.

EnglishSorceror

Take the year you were born, and subtract it from 1986. If the number is positive, it means I have been a martial artist longer than you have been alive. Her kata is flawless, and you are trying to boost your internet karma by trying to be a badass commentator without the knowledge to back it up. I pity you.


DudeDurk

Pooki sokuku chunjutsu practitioner here and I agree. Her stance is wrong and she didn't use the fireball jutsu. She needs to practice harder smfh

shounen lmao. Really is a martial *art*.


Motralus

i mean this feels like a obsecure version of gymnastics with sword so like it's perfectly okay and obviously not meant to be a viable fighting style lol


theabyssaboveyou

Idk, the fact that it encorporates a sword makes it much more viable then most none sword weilding fighting styles. Like, Brazilian jiu-jitsu is great for hand to hand. But what do you do when someone lobs of your hand with a blade? Hard to grapple at that point innit.


polyesterjellyfish

give 'em the ol' stump thump


hmhemes

It's simple. You just do that thing where you clap your hands together on the side of the blade.


harrypottermcgee

I bet a BJJ guy could kick my ass if I had a sword and did nothing but kata. They know range, and footwork, and actually spar. If you can trick me into swinging and missing (not hard if I've only ever done routines) they'll shoot in close and my bones will never be the same again.


theabyssaboveyou

A complete idiot BJJ guy. The best thing about having a weapon is that having it Especially one where instant death or dismemberment is an option, is a deterrent. The fact that I square up to fight tmand the other person confidently draws a sword is gonna make 95% of bjj or anyone reconsider their options. Also, idk if you've ever trained. Nobody *only* practices routines. As demonstrated by this girls footwork and agility. She definitely practices more then just recital stuff. Her swordsmanship isn't perfect, but it doesn't need to be. It really just needs to hit with the sharp side and whoever your fighting is going to stop fighting. Fun fact. Did you know back in the day when wars were people lining up in columns and shooting, that about 99% of the time when ammo was low and someone decided to have their side do a Bayonette charge, the other side would break down into full retreat. Because the thought of getting stabbed in the gut and having to see your intenstined is terrifying to... everyone. Just about ANY style of weapons based combat (and I say just about because there are thousands of martial arts and I won't pretend to know them all) is gonna be an advantage over any without weapons. Even an untrained idiot with a sword can easily beat a BJJ expert if they have ANY common sense and aren't using a sword that's too heavy. Don't even get me started on knives and guns.


u9Nails

A real martial artist will restomp the groin and not need that BJJ crap. -Master Ken


JoshsPizzaria

why would it not be? of course its ok and this girl seems to really enjoy it XD or use it to blow off steam

That's basically most martial arts demonstrations though. At least the ones I see posted online. A lot of twirling and spinning without any real application

Anyone knows what the martial art is called? I train Aikido and a bit of Kendo and the moves seem very impractical... was just wandering if there is more to it than meets the eye.


SnooPineapples1212

Bullshido I believe it's called.


RegionalHardman

Same as aikido!


ThirdRook

Aikido is a real martial art... it's practicality in anything but demonstrations is questionable at best, of course, but it is a real study.


-_4DoorsMoreWhores_-

They are impractical. This is more of a demonstration. Her sword technique is strange in the world of Kenjutsu. She is a talented dancer, though.


Phiro050

Its not martial arts💀


Sean_Kellington

It's "Musical Forms", a type of WAKO kickboxing. It's essentially choreographed gymnastics combined with assorted martial arts. . It's very entertaining and impressive to watch. I know the girl in the video and was on the Irish team with her. This is a very old video, she's since been on Britain's Got Talent (got the to the finals I think) and I believe she's training to be a stunt actress now!
