Cobra Kai Cast Test Martial Arts Gadgets
Released on 01/11/2022
Hi, we are the cast of Cobra Kai
and we're guest correspondents for Wired.
And today we'll be testing
and reviewing martial arts tech.
All right, first gadget please.
Oh my God.
I feel like it's a hand strength thing.
It looks like a swing.
I don't know if like-
What is this?
Tiger claw eagle catcher.
Eagle catcher is great for building strength
in your hands
Wrists and fingers.
Individual resistance spring
provides a focused workout for each finger.
Shaolin said, nice. Wow.
I wanted this thing for my Kung Fu training.
I can reposition my fingers
in order to work different parts of my hand.
Simple old-school like device that is easy to use.
Success book club said,
I don't trust this already.
Because you're a book club not a karate person,
This does not work well,
all caps in bold.
I do not recommend
this piece of exercise equipment.
It is not easy to use
and cannot be adjusted to fit.
Oh, he's got small hands.
To fit different size hands or hand strengths.
Yeah. I'm sorry if your hands
are even smaller than this.
Yeah. My hands fit in there.
I feel like the goal is probably to keep your-
Put your hands in the coconut
and shake it all up.
That's copyright. Careful.
Maybe this is really good
and we just don't know how to use it very well.
It seems so situational.
I'd say it does its job. It did.
I'm sure it does what it's supposed to do.
Five out of five.
Oh, shoot. It's like a mini
It has a handle in the back.
I just love this.
I hope this is not a mitt.
I think it's got to be a mitt.
Yeah, I think it's gotta be a catching mitt.
Boxing Mitt human head.
It says the head shape helps
increase punching accuracy.
Lightweight helps increase punching speed.
Left and right hooks, uppercuts, leg kicks.
Leg kicks? How is that? Okay.
And so much more.
perfect for boxing, kickboxing, MMA,
muay thai and karate training.
Benjamin Sensei says pretty good purchase.
This piece of equipment is worth it.
I think the only drawback was that the handle
rubbed my hand pretty bad.
I would recommend having glove on.
CJ805 said hard to hold.
Not very effective.
Doesn't hold well for striking.
The handle should be in the center
not on the back because it just flops
side to side uncontrollably
when someone throws hooks even light ones.
Can take jabs and crosses okay.
All right. You want it like this? Like this?
I'm just going to let go.
Oh! - Oh!
Let's see if I come in here like
Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Oh! - Oh!
I think it works pretty well.
I think the guy who gave it a one-star
was just mad and didn't think of it
in a creative way like we did.
Yeah. I think this one,
I actually liked this one
more than the last one. I think.
I think four stars though,
because you're right.
If you could wear it as a mitt
You wouldn't be able to launch it.
Yeah. You wouldn't be able to launch it.
It works good as a launcher.
I can see the handle rubbing.
Yeah. - I can see that.
It was satisfying though.
Other than that. Yeah. Four and a half stars.
And it smells bad so four stars.
Can we have the third gadget please?
They're boards that you can break,
But you can put them back together
so you're not wasting.
They're environmentally friendly
Re-breakable breakable boards.
I love that.
Victory Martial Arts branded
re-breakable karate boards
are made with premium quality,
high impact molded plastic
with rubber padding on both sides.
Break, slide back together, and break again.
Different colors equal different levels of difficulty.
Match the board thickness with your belt level
to get an idea of the thickness you need.
Cassie said it breaks again and again.
The cushioning is a nice touch,
although it doesn't make a lot of difference.
Five stars. Too hard to break.
Didn't expect it to be so hard to break. One star.
Sorry you're a green belt, buddy.
Three, two. - Oh! - Oh!
Tanner's like it really hurt.
Did it hurt? - Look at that. - No.
I feel like it's firm. - Ah. - Nice.
Oh my god. - Yeah.
Oh! - Yeah.
I think these are actually kind of cool.
That was fun.
All right. What do you guys think?
The last, the face one was more fun,
but you'll get the most use out of this one.
But it's environmentally friendly.
Where's the brick one? - Five out of five.
Five stars for that. - Five stars.
Five stars. - Five stars.
May I please have the next gadget?
Oh, I know this one. - Oh my gosh.
Yeah, these are cool. This is the
It can be one of two things.
Play catch with yourself? Yeah. It also, yeah.
I could've used this as a child.
Raise your reflex for reflexes in the ring
lead to painful losses. K.O. the competition.
When you refine your reflexes
and high and eye coordination.
with Champs. - High and eye.
reaction ball set. Ready, set, spar
comes with one headband, four balls with chords
and four extra chords.
Canuto de Leon said training and entertainment.
The product was just as described.
It's entertaining and fun for all ages.
My four year old son and 72 year old dad have used it.
It's challenging yet very straightforward.
Five stars. You hear that? It's for all ages.
And then Eric said trash.
It might as well be garbage.
The worst part is how easy it is for the ropes to snap.
For MMA boxing? More like a pathetic
child's toy thing that should be renamed pathetic.
I think he's got tiny hands.
Renamed pathetic. - I think he has tiny hands.
Oh, oh, oh. - Oh.
Oh, you had a little rhythm going there for a second.
All right. Someone else can try this.
I'm not going to embarrass myself.
I'm starting to agree with that Eric guy.
There you go. There you go.
Yeah, yeah. - All right.
There you go. - This is stressing me out.
There you go. It's like whack a mole.
Yeah. - There we go. - All right.
I feel like a cat.
I think Peyton's right.
I think it does feel a bit like a cat,
but it's really fun.
I think it'd be cool to get good at.
I don't know if I would spend my money on this,
but I think if I don't know Wired were to gift one.
Gift it by he's going to escape with this today.
It's a fun party trick.
I was about to say this would be a fun party game.
If you lose the party game, guys.
Then you take a sip of Capri Sun. - Yeah.
You take a sip of your Mountain Dew and you do this.
Mountain Dew baby. - There we go. Good. Five stars.
I actually agree with Eric was the one
who gave the nasty review, right?
I kind of agree that with Eric,
that the string was a little lame.
I think I would give it four.
I would not charge more than like $15.
I think that would be scamming people.
I feel like it's probably 20.
How much is it?
Oh. - Wow. - Oh look at that. Yeah. I was right.
May we please have the final gadget?
Thank you. - Oh, it's R2D2. Oh, it feels sturdy.
I mean, this feels pretty cheap.
You know what this is? - It's a holder.
It's Fushigi. - Oh, Fushigi.
The vibrating massage ball.
Vibration technology improves range of motion
and flexibility, reduces soreness and stiffness,
and enhances muscle performance.
Use it like a fitness roller on your hand, foot, neck,
body or wherever you see fit.
love the vibes.
Yo Bohab. - Bohab said love the vibes
I have one of these and two of the larger versions.
This one is good for smaller body areas.
You don't want the full force of the larger version.
The vibes on this are strong.
Love them both. Five stars.
Yeah. We know what the vibes mean.
Yeah. - Yeah.
GS said not nearly enough vibration
to be more beneficial than a ball.
I guess the small size is limiting for vibration amount.
Oh, there we go.
Intensity. What are you thinking?
I'm going to agree that it's not great.
Yeah. It kinda just feels like your phone is buzzing.
But what if you laid on it?
Hey. Wait, wait, wait.
It feels like your phone is buzzing.
It feels like you just have
white noise on your back.
My god. That went up my spine.
Maybe try it on the top of your thigh.
I like it.
I think you went Bohab on this one.
This would go in my junk drawer for sure.
Oh, that was the most savage thing
you've said all day.
This is like a wrap gift you get
This would go in my junk drawer.
And then you never use.
This is a zero star.
What? - Zero or one star.
Wait, wait, wait. You gave the last thing five or four?
Yeah. What the heck.
Okay. - This thing is not that great.
Okay. The difference is that last thing was $20
and this is like $150 probably.
Yeah. - Is it?
It's gotta be like 99.99.
Let's play hot potato with it.
Yeah. - Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Awesome guys. Those are all five of the gadgets.
What'd you guys think of them?
They were fun.
It was a pretty even split.
I liked the face launcher.
The reusable board. - I liked the face.
I liked the carrot on the stick the most.
That one was cool.
We'll have to introduce them into our training.
Yeah. Catch us next week.
See you next time.
