Slo-mo video of Hisato throwing Jeff

I posted this on Facebook a while back but neglected to post it here. This was taken on Hisato's last day at the dojo before moving back to Japan. Nice smooth technique. (Hisato — a belated Happy Birthday! I hope you're doing well!)

The reason there's no sound is that I was shooting at 210 frames per second, and my camera doesn't capture audio in that mode. Although it's cool to be able to shoot that fast, in the future I'd probably prefer to shoot at normal speed and slow it down in software. Not only would I get sound, but the video would be less grainy.
