    Thank you Slow Mo Guys for this wonderful gift of pain

  3. Mukund Sharma says:

    The shouts are absolutely blood-curdling. 10/10 would not want to go against someone screaming like that

    • Mukund Sharma says:

      +SirNeutral the difference being?

      …shrillness? +Mukund Sharma

    • Captain Beast says:

      its all psych games. the scream is nothing, the boards are nothing. they are simply accrobats that are stiff and springy. Impressive that they have trained to be in sync and fly through the air using multiple bodies to send one flying. but to say these are scary fighters…meh. id like to see them break wood squares of plywood with a solid ankle kick, then ill take them serious. breaking super weak wood that will break by dropping it wrong is not impressive.

    Gosh, she’s adorable. And deadly. Deadly adorable.

    Getting a black belt in 1-2 years is absolutely insane. Huge amount of dedication and training.

    • Dakota Tomlinson says:

      Some dojos keep separate rankings for children. My old place used a child’s ranking system, and then when you turned 15 if you had your kids black belt you were put into adults. If you didn’t get your kids black belt before 18 you were automatically put into adults classes.

    • Carlos Galvan says:

      A black belt is 4 years of training

    • 0 Subs 1k videos says:

      Why does no one in this thread mention the frequency at which you train? I would think that would be fairly important information considering you guys are discussing time frames and such because surely someone who trains once a week will get a black belt far later than someone (As I’d imagine the Koreans do) who trains every day or even twice a week. Just seems odd that no one thought to mention that rather significant piece of info.

    • Carlos Galvan says:

      +0 Subs 1k videos at my dojon you can train as many days as you want. majority only train 2 days. since i am a tournament fighter (im getting started) i go to regular class, which is 1 hour and 30 minutes. then i have to wait for the next class, which is another hour and a half. thats my schedule for tuesday and thursday. on saturday, we have to be there at 8 am to 1 pm to do cardio, plyametrics and kick out. my master trained with jay warwick (who is the grandmaster) and visits the school on black belt tests and other important dates.

    Seven years old gils have so much power

  8. Pseudonymonic says:

    Dan’s already broken his hand once in the service of slow mo. he’s suffered enough

  9. SR5phillips 99 says:

    I love how she describes endurance as mental strength not physical… I kind of agree because often we don’t think we can complete or finish something when really we can and it’s all in our heads

    I just hired that lil girl as my personal BODY GUARD!

  11. David Rekowski says:

    There’s this thing called wood grain as well…

  12. SoloHero says:

    Looking pretty badass in the thumbnail, Dan.

  13. Shashwat Shrivastava says:

    How much effort do these guys take to film all of this at 4K in slow mo….

    And up here I watch this in 480p

  14. tobbaddol says:

    The Cookie One team is really impressive

  15. SmarterEveryDay says:

    Dan was channelling his inner David Hasselhoff for the thumbnail. No idea if I spelled that correctly.

    7:28 only true friendship last through stuff like that.

    • Colin Osborne says:

      Serious, that verges on legit cruel

    • 0 Subs 1k videos says:

      +Colin Osborne I’m fairly sure he knew it was coming. Even I knew it was coming based on Gavs tone, body language and expressions and that he checked the boards beforehand and made Dan use a certain one. I felt like that was super obvious. Although I was surprised when he actually punched it.

  17. Mrs M A E says:

    Shout out to those guys who trained dan, must have taken a lot of patience and a lot of holding back laughs

    Cute kid and all, but let’s have Dan kicked by a full sized male Taekwondo expert.

    • Đỗ Nguyên Long says:

      MeijinSensei and then get sent straight to the hospital, most likely.

    • Random-Animezing says:

      Yeah…I have to admit I was disappointed, but she’s precious and talented!

    • Laura McW says:

      Well knowing TKD and the theory of power behind that, Mass is only one of the elements, the most important are speed and concentration of force, that “kid” can create serious amounts of power.

    • LordBloodpool says:

      I can hear his ribs cracking from here!

    • litapd311 says:

      +Laura McW Well if she’s trained so long she’s probably getting really good speed and concentration, eventually she’ll get limited by her mass since.

      still could ruin me tho lol

  20. WillieRants says:

    6:36 that sympathy clap… Well done #10 well done.

    It’s a Korean thing.
