(Hospital 07) The Great Antonio Inoki


What can I say about this man Antonio Inoki? He made the professional wrestling exciting in Japan back in the day, and later in his life, he was the pionner of the now famous MMA (Mixed Martial Arts.)
His presence is so huge as you can see from this excerpt from Wikipedia:
During one visit to a school in the 80's, Inoki was punched twice by a student. Inoki slapped the student across the face, knocking him down. The student, who later turned out to be an Inoki fan, then rose, bowed deeply, and thanked Inoki for the slap. The incident became very famous as the then live clip of the binta (slap in the face) was shown many times on Japanese television. Now various celebrities and even common people in Japan ask Inoki to slap them to install courage or even as some sort of strange blessing. The slap's name is the "Fighting Spirit (or Toukon) Slap." (闘魂ビンタ)

Anyway, translating/subbing this clip were pretty difficult because there were characters or words that viewers needed to just be familiar with, or known, in order to appreciate/laugh.

Hope you enjoy it,
