Hiroaki Tanaka

So, now that everyone is up to speed on what’s going on with Martial Arts Movie Junkie, let’s talk about something that’s not really related to martial arts films. I know, it’s a great way to kick off the site, but this guy deserves some recognition.

His name is Hiroaki Tanaka and he’s recently been noticed by the internet for his ability to look amazing in a suit and fight with some umbrellas. Don’t believe me? Check out this magic:


You can also check out his channel to see him fight with other weapons such as fans, glowsticks and clothes that are still on hangers.


Obviously these are just snippets and wouldn’t really work in a street fight, but I wouldn’t mind seeing this guy use some of his creativity to create full-length action sequences. He’s clearly a martial arts practitioner of some caliber, so maybe he could get his foot into the door and join a team or something. I mean, could you imagine how great these would be with an actual opponent!?

I couldn’t really find too much information on Hiroaki when I was writing this, but if he’s out there, I hope he knows he gained one more fan today.

    im glad to see the site to continue as well… I feel the same way about the movies and have always expressed on here the type of movies hollywood is producing ; either super hero or remakes which I find myself just waiting for it to come out on video…Nothing is really good out there and im afraid the aisan movies will go that route to gain interests in the US in order to compete leaving talented guys like this video not get discovered… Theres someone out there thats the next jet li or donnie yen…we need that spark again!!!
