In this Japanese TV show, a swordsman wielding his katana manages to catch a baseball hurtling at 130 mph towards him and slice it in half!


On the part of the swordsman, he definitely possesses some amazing speed and accuracy with his weapon. The credit has to go to the speed of the ball and the strength of the katana as well. I believe that the baseball would also get sliced into two pieces even if the katana was in a stationary position.
