V.O.: "The human body doesn't stand a chance"
"Brach" cont etc
Any one of those strikes would have been fatal.

... and slashes almost always only kill by making the recipient bleed out which takes a lot of time. Katanas were primarily mean to be cavalry weapons, as their curved shape makes it easy to slash someone as you're galloping by without getting it stuck in anything.
One of the plethora of reasons the Roman army was so completely drenched in badassery was that the infantry exclusively stabbed, which means that they punctured vital organs and killed enemies much faster than most other cultures who only slashed.
not only did the Romans train to stab, but a soldier could get executed if they were caught using their sword to slash instead of thrusting.
This is ballistics gel, which is designed to mimic human flesh. If human flesh contained no bone matter.
yeah pretty much, you could chop someones hand off and they would bleed to death after a while or, having survived that, catch a nasty infection and die a week later.
Stab a bitch in the chest and he's going down.
In general aren't stabbing weapons much easier to make then slashing weapons? Plus in many cases you have the advantage of reach.
I had no idea until you said that
I was full of ideas until about halfway through astropod's comment. Now I'm just disappointed. Deeply disappointed.

Gratuitous? I probably wouldn't have watched that all the way through if he was wearing a shirt. And I sure as hell wouldn't have watched it over and over like that if he was.
I love this for the fact that he clearly believes, to the very core of his being, that every strike is going to chop the Jell-O mold in half... and every time he fails, but pushes on undaunted. A true samurai warrior.
Wear some chainmail and/or some kind of breastplate and all you have is a very shiny bludgeon.
yeah, you show that mean old jello!

Of COURSE he's Australian.

This is kinda like Deadliest Warrior except on DW after 50 boring minutes of fucking around with ballistics gel and crash dummies, you get to watch a Samurai fight a Viking
The best thing about this show is how utterly stupid it thinks men are.
No wait. The best thing is how it's right.
The gel has a higher natural AC than the Australian.
He's making shouting noises like Stingray from Undefeatable.
