Blind folded Samurai master has incredible skills

Thursday, March 02, 2017

In pop culture the Katana is perhaps the most famous weapon from all of the martial arts thanks to films such as the Seven Samurai, Ghost Dog: The way of the Samurai and of course the Kill Bill series.

But in modern times Samurai masters are not limited to fiction as ‘Guinness World Records OMG!’ host Oli White finds out first hand.

Meet Ryan Hayashi; a Japanese Karate Association certified 3rd Dan black belt as well as a master in the art of ‘Iaido’ (Art of Drawing the Sword) which is derived from a centuries old tradition of the Samurai warrior classes.

Described in 2010 by the British press as “the most dangerous act on television”, Ryan currently holds the Guinness World Record for the highest amount of cucumbers cut that are held in a person’s mouth within one minute, which currently stands at 22 cucumbers (44 cuts).

After witnessing Ryan’s master cutting skills on some water bottles, Oli visits his dojo to get a private karate lesson which literally takes his breath away.

After that’s all said and done Ryan demonstrates his famous cucumber except this time he adds a twist of doing it completely blind folded.

Will Ryan be making salad or sashimi, find out below.

Guinness World Records, known from its inception in 1955 until 1998 as The Guinness Book of Records and in previous U.S. editions as The Guinness Book of World Records, is a reference book that is published annually, listing world records and national records, both of human achievements and the extremes of the natural world. The book itself holds a world record, as the best-selling copyrighted book of all time. As of the 2016 edition, it is now in its 62nd year of publication. The international franchise has extended beyond print to include television series and museums. [Source: Wiki]
