Modern samurai cuts speeding bullet in half (video)

It’s simply amazing what can be done with a good sword.

Isao Machii also known as the modern samurai has such control and connection with his sword that he can cut a speeding bullet in half. That’s right, a speeding bullet.

A friend told me about Machii’s bullet-cutting abilities, but I found it hard to believe until I watched the video below.

Machii was featured on the television show Stan Lee’s Superhumans, which highlights people with real superhuman abilities. In one episode last year, they focused on Machii’s sword-wielding skills. In one of the first segments, Machii impressively sliced a baseball in two clean pieces, but the major feat was cutting the BB shot from a gun.

In order for him to do something like this, he has to really connect and feel his sword rather than simply look at the BB approach.

Check out this clip and be amazed. Just remember, don’t try this with one of your samurai swords.
