A group of students have performed what is considered a most amazing form of synchronized match parade leaving viewers completely baffled.
A video showing students performing a 47-year-old traditional synchronized parade at Japan’s Nippon Sports Science University has gone viral.
‘Shuudan koudou’, which means ‘Collective Action’, is a unique routine where a group of students put up an amazing display of synchronized walking.
Prior to the program, the students practiced three days a week, for five months straight. Their training included exercises to get them in shape for the dazzling display.
They ended up walking almost 1,200 kilometers during practice (roughly the distance between Paris and Rome).
23-year-old Keiko Suzuki, the captain of the team, said: “People say Japanese youngsters these days lack the ability to work collectively in a group, but we just proved that we don’t.”
She also said that the training would give them an edge in their job search.
“We all mastered this highly disciplined training and made it our habit to stick to strict rules. I believe this experience will be an asset as we enter into the job market.”
