Tutti & Kikuchi Go Full Karate with Japan National Team Coach | Gamers Vs


We are going to visit a place
today, I’m going to take lessons
from a karate master. That’s right, a karate dojo. Why do I have to go there? Of course, it’s because I want
to be Japan’s number one Actually, nope! I want to be
number one in the world! In fact, I am number one in the
world! (GAMERS VS – SELECT DIFFICULTY
LEVEL, EASY, MEDIUM, OLYMPIC) (LOADING) (WE CHALLENGE TOP GAMERS (TO TRY SPORTS (WITH OLYMPIANS) (GAMERS VS) (PLAYER 1) (PLAYER 2) (TUTTI) (KIKUCHI) (GAMING YOUTUBER) (YOUTUBER/LIVESTREAM) (MONSTER STRIKE PLAYER) (PUZZLE AND DRAGONS PLAYER) (SUBSCRIBERS: 130,724) (SUBSCRIBERS:85,531) (VIDEO VIEWS: 84,472,728) (VIDEO VIEWS: 57,720,365) Hi there! My name is,
wait for it, Kikuchi. – Right, then
– Thank you! I’m Tutti. I spend a lot of time fooling
around with video games, but today I’m looking
forward to getting a bit of physical
exercise for a change. That’s right. Today we’re not
talking about games. But where are we, then? Well, this is the Japan
Karatedo Building. Yes, that’s right!
We’ve come to do some karate. The added bonus is that I’m
going to be able to do karate together
with Kai Ikezawa. – That’s amazing.
– Are you going to be OK? That was a bit sudden! Well, that’s the way you do it,
all of a sudden! Well, then, shall we give it
a go right away? Right, let’s go inside!
Let’s go! Wow, Amazing! Enormous! Absolutely enormous. – It’s enormous.
– An enormous dojo! Your voice. (LEVEL 1 – MEET THE COACH) I’m currently the senior coach
for the national team. My name’s Higuchi. (TAIJU HIGUCHI (JPN) – JAPAN
SENIOR KARATE COACH) We spend our time immersed
in video games. If you actually experience
karate for yourself, you may find
something that comes in useful in connection with video games. Right, then, so for today, thanks for letting us have a go and we look forward to
your instruction. Let’s go. (LEVEL 2 – MEET THE ATHLETE) The coach is waiting for us
over there. Let’s go. He’s got a different expression
on his face now. What do you think then, coach? It suits you. Do you reckon we’re OK? Yes, I feel the uniform is
wearing me rather than I’m wearing it! He’s a first-year senior
high school pupil, when he was at junior high
school he became world champion. – World champion!
– This is Kai Ikezawa. (KAI IKEZAWA (JPN) – 2015 WORLD
JUNIOR CHAMPION) You’ll be practising with him. Wow, that’s amazing!
Thank you for coming along. You’re still very young, so I suppose you must
be thinking about taking part in the 2020
Tokyo Olympic Games? Yes, if there’s any chance of
me being able to take part, I’d certainly like to get hold
of it. Any techniques that you’re
particularly good at? I’m good at Tsuki-waza. Ah, punching! (LEVEL 3 – WARM UP ZONE!) This is worrying. Let’s go. My legs are too short! Oh, coach! That’s too
difficult. I can’t do that. That’s really
tough. Coach! I’m going to topple
over! Inwards, inwards, outwards,
outwards. Does this really have any
connection to karate? Yes, it does. 1,2,3,4,5 dash! Let’s go! This quick?! If we don’t stop now,
we’re going to collapse if we keep this up for 30
minutes! OK, well, that’s it, then. (HOW TO KARATE) (KARATE, KUMITE IS A NEW
OLYMPIC SPORT) (KUMITE IS AN INDIVIDUAL
COMPETITION) (ATHLETES SCORE POINTS (USING KICKS, PUNCHES, STRIKES,
THROWS AND SWEEPS) (MATCHES LAST A MAXIMUM OF
THREE MINUTES) (LEVEL 4 – TRAINING) The kind of karate we do is based on a point scoring
system, it’s not the same as
a full-contact version in which you try to
injure your opponent. – So it’s OK to go this far?
– Yes, then pull back. Further than that, I’d be out? It’s scary! It’s scary! That’s it! It doesn’t sound the same. You pull your rear
leg slightly forward. That’s right. Tutti! Let’s do this! Next we’ll try mawashi-geri. – Mawashi-geri?
– Yes. That’s a result of
my playing football. You need to aim a bit more
accurately. That’s a volley shot. Balance properly on your
leg with your heel. Then rotate. The other way
round. That’s right. Your legs are a bit too short! His legs are too short? Couldn’t resist a kick? (TUTTI VS KIKUCHI
FINAL SHOWDOWN) A round, let’s do one minute. One minute? All right! Now that I removed my
glasses, it’s serious. OK, begin! Wait. Stop, stop. When the opponent is
approaching you, there’s really no
need to yell “Ooooii!” You’re regressing from high
school to middle school level. I know where your heart is at,
though. And again, begin! Stop. Stop! His legs got out! His legs got out, it’s a foul. Two seconds. And again, begin! Stop! (KIKUCHI WINS!) He has won. Bow. Thank you very much! (BONUS ROUND) OK, begin! Whoa, he’s quick! And again, begin! Waza ari. And again, begin! And again, begin! Nearly got me again! 10 seconds to go. Stop! Hey, coach, that was unfair! Thanks very much. I’m really knackered! I don’t usually get much
exercise, but it’s fun whenever
you do get a chance and having the opportunity
to do something with a professional or an
expert really shows you how
scary and tiring it is. I expect people are going
to get more and more enthusiastic about karate as
the Tokyo Olympics approaches, I hope that it’ll feature
increasingly on YouTube and create even more
interest in the sport. We’ll put some real
fighting spirit into it! Thanks very much for giving
us some brief instruction. Thank you, too. Well, I guess that’s that,
then. We’ve spent a day
experiencing karate. What did you make of it? I suppose I thought before that
karate was just a question of having fun and having
a real punch-up, but actually receiving some
instruction has made me realise that it’s a detailed
skill with very precise rules, and this has made it much
more interesting for me. Yep. See you all then! (YOUR TURN) (TRY SPORTS (AND SHARE WITH #OLYMPIC
