Just an analysis on his landings.....

First one looked like he hit his shoulder pretty bad; when you watch the slomo footage you can see the side of his shoulder impact and the arm visibly shake. Beautiful frontflip and roll otherwise though.

The kong to cat looked like he overshot the cat a little and under rotated the front, causing him to land on his heels.

After the double kong his center of gravity isn't far enough forward, causing him to slapout slightly backwards, but otherwise it's not bad.

Last roll he didn't carry enough forward momentum again and landing on his heels before doing the roll and hitting his shoulder slightly.

I think a lot of it can be forgiven seeing as he seems to do them more or less from a cold start, and besides, he probably had the muscle to absorb most of the impact he's taking. It's rather insightful for how experienced tracuers land off high jumps though; one can see that they still don't have perfect rolls off of them. Which is why everybody is still training. ;)

Is it just me or do his landings look painful?

it's all in the nipple rings, man.

seriously though, cool vid. narrator has a bit of an attitude, but the slo-mo shots were worth it.

Aside of the flash, good insight!
I remember seeing this some time ago and thinking that, with that kind of footage, they could have done a much better job in explaining the bio-mechanics of the landing and Victor's mental focus during the technique. But...whatever... IT'S SHOWTIME!
