If you want to be a modern-day samurai, then you have a lot of options. There are samurai coats, samurai parkas, and even samurai shirts, which can all combine to make you feel like you’re an ancient Japanese warrior.

But for the most hardcore samurai aficionados, only the real-deal full-body armor will do. But among them there’s a group that's even more hardcore: a group that does extreme sports while wearing samurai armor.

The full video is a commercial for Cup Noodle to advertise their slogan “Crazy makes the future.” We’re not exactly sure what that means, but hey, if it means we get to watch samurai doing bad-ass tricks on bikes, skis and pogo sticks, then we’re all for it!
