Men's Rhythmic Gymnastics

Yes, it exists in Japan.

I’ve known about it for a while (my dad’s alma mater had a strong program for a long time) but this is the first time I’ve come across this video.

It’s the group from Aomori University but I’m not sure what competition this is from.

It’s an amazing display of artistry and athleticism!

    Sho….WOWIE….that’s all I can say about that video. That’s is truly an amazing work of art!! I remember my association with a Masayuki Watanabe, who is now a coach for a JO girls team in Sacramento. When I worked at a club he directed in Concord, he had a “warm up” routine that the teams did everyday. It involved coordination, flexibility and precision, much like I saw in this video. Just amazing! Thanks for sharing that.

    Wow. That is totally amazing! Never knew Men Rhythmic gymnastics exists! Thanks for sharing that. I’m a great fan of gymnastics from Singapore (though I’m not into the sport).. Just too bad the sport isn’t really that popular here.. Keep up the good work Sho!
