Japan has a rich and varied culture; on the one hand, it is buried in thousands of years of profound traditions, but on the other, they never shy away from attempting anything new and have achieved great technological advances. A viral video of kids practicing “Shuudan koudou,” a Japanese group exercise in which members walk in synchronized patterns to create numerous crossings, has stunned the internet.
Richi Glez Davila uploaded the popular video on Twitter. The students wearing uniforms had amazing synchronization throughout the video. This over one-minute video, which was released on November 6, will blow your mind. According to many sources, this walking art has been performed for Nippon Sport Science University students for over 30 years.
The term “shuudan koudou” means “collective action” in English.
The title of the viral video reads, “And just when you think you’ve seen it all, you come across this… Japanese students conducting synchronized crossings That is horrible! “I find it horrible, fantastic, and captivating, and I shudder to think how many times they’ve been able to train something like that.”
The post has received 2.2 million views and over 1500 views thus far. Several people flocked to the comments section to share their thoughts on this amazing walking technique.
“On military occasions, I’ve marched in formation.” I’ve even led a few formations. But this is incredible! “Thank you, @RexChapman,” one user said.
“We feel pleased when we manage to put an additional cookie on a packed baking pan; this video is a level beyond lethal,” a second person remarked.
“What I like about it is that they do it in a suit!” Another comment was read.
“I enjoy synchrony. Drill teams, marching bands, dancing troupes, and so on. Everything is amazing and intriguing to me. “Props to everyone who practiced for hours and hours to perform things like this so that I could be captivated and applaud like a child,” said someone else.
