A few months ago this video did the rounds showing two robots seemingly in a face off that lasts much less than a second.

It was, of course, turned into a joke, but it left people wondering what exactly happened.

Luckily the micro-documentary YouTube channel Great Big Story is here to answer that question in less than three minutes.

As you may have guessed by the speed of the fights the robots are autonomous and each bout only lasts about five seconds but, man, what an exciting five seconds it is.

It’s also mentioned, at the end of the video, that there is a world championship for this sport, so it must not be confined to Japan. Hopefully we see this sport catch on here at some point.
