It's always interesting to hear what actual martial artists think about attacks from our favorite fighting games. Of course, it's also pretty cool to see them performing them in real life.

Gemma Nguyen from Gamology is said to be a seven time world champion at Karate. With help from Noah, she takes a closer look at some moves in Tekken 7 and demonstrates whether they're actually possible or not.

When Gemma comes across Kazuya's iconic spin kicks, she's audibly surprised by the motion. She describes it as being "super unrealistic" and "physically impossible."

Despite the issues, Noah is still able to perform a variation of Kazuya's spin kick special. He only ends up going for a single sweep before transitioning into the final punch.

The duo also take a look at some of the goofier attacks that are present in Tekken 7. For example, one of Lei's attacks has him finishing in a pose that's not ideal for real world fights.

Needless to say, there's a lot of useful information provided in the video. Check it out below:
