What is interesting is that in actual "save your life" or real fighting, this is seldom used. As example look at the events in the octagon where marshal arts are permitted. A few kicks and punching--as in boxing--are the forces used (other than submission moves). Professional boxers are the most powerful forces, not necessarily marshal artists. Knowing how to strike with speed AND power is the key. Speed without the power (like a girls slap--which can be lightning fast) does little damage. I have seen events in which boxers were pitted against marshal artists. The boxers usually prevailed. They only didn't when the marshal artist also was skilled in boxing. Study what you want, but be aware and intelligent as well. Boxing is a deadly and effective force against the best trained marshal artist. Consider the hypothetical fight--Bruce Lee against Mile Tyson when he was 20. Your bet? I know who I would put my money on.

Not fast! Fast enough! Strange!? Why come those claiming there's something faster as ex. my friend/brother - seen faster ... blablablah! Been fighting on the streets since I was a little kid. Happy and blessed that I'm not in to such shit anymore. The guy in the vid is good, some others only needs 2 guys to carry them to the grave. There's usually only 2 handles on a garbagebin... Highly recomend the episode of National Geographic, fight science... very good for those who are interessted in martial arts etc.

It's real - his name is Tommy Carruthers - and besides being very fast, he's also very strong. Google him and you'll find a lot more stuff on him.

This guys techniques are believable. I have witnessed skilled fighters throw five and six punches per second. I think the sound effects are actually because he is wearing jeans and a long sleve shirt. Anyone can duplicate those sounds if you throw a punch or kick fully clothed.

While speed and power look great and can be extremely successful in perfect situations, they mean NOTHING in the scope of things. The most important thing (as tought and known by all good fighters) are your feet and positioning in relation to your opponent.

I don't care if you can throw 20 punches per second and punch through bricks reinforced with steel, if I move out of the way before the punch/kick is thrown it is just wasted energy. Simple rules of physics. Also, if a fighter tries to out-speed or overpower an opponent, the become disadvantaged when they face someone who is stronger and/or faster then themselves.

Don't complicate things becoming mystified by someones speed or power. The best fighters are the ones who are the smartest thereby getting hit the least!

As said before, speed isn't always the key thing. Unless it's the speed of moving your fist from a completely casual position to the opponents face (or any other body part of your choosing).
It's the ability to use the moves in a real fight.
It's like learning language - what good are the words if you're not going to use them regulary
