Strange: it says 12 min long but it stops like a few minutes in.

I did that too to restart it.

Toward the end they were shown crying.

Why?

Because they didn't make the squad?

There are worse things to be crying about.

The Japanese are weird when it comes to work and dedication, etc etc Almost to the point of OCD!

Some kind of emotional release after the stress of precision walking?

This is what happens when you start with a culture based on glorious military tradition and take their guns away.

Pretty impressive though, particularly the reverse inter meshed passes.

Rather reminds me of the fine old tradition of the
Great Briefcase Drill Teams


The Synchronized Briefcase Drill Team 1979




I particularly liked the one I remember in San Francisco
(1983) that performed precision manoeuvres to Jackson Browne's
Lawyers in Love. I didn't realize at the time they'd been
used in the tune's video (sorry, can't embed with the
time offset):

Isn't this called marching? Most military's have been doing it for a while smile

I don't recall ever seeing a military group marching
backwards perpendicularly through another group doing
the same.

So what's the deal with the Miami Vice style pink jackets?

Re: japanese walking : cool in an odd sort of way. I'm more impressed by military drill teams or marching bands who do the same sort of stuff while manipulating a rifle or playing an instrument.

Marching bands generally do not give commands, and on top of it they're also displaying mastery of a handy life skill. While I'm sure this took plenty of work and practice it's solidly in the "Japanese people are bizarre" file wink

IIRC, it's a famous marching club that belongs to the sports university.

AFAIK, the most famous and difficult part of this march is 1:11-1:19 where you have to walk into crowd at almost full speed, swinging arms without colliding each other with considerably tight formation.

They trained really really hard to make that whole marching happen, thus the crying after the show.
