Batman’s fighting style is ridiculous

2 min read


Batman. Master detective. Expert predator. A genius in stealth. And one of the most dangerous hand to hand combatants on the planet, thanks to a lifetime spent on studying which bones make the crunchiest of sounds when broken.

Very few people can hope to beat the caped crusader in a fistfight. The Batman has studied every martial art under the sun, from Karate, Krav Maga and Judo (which is not what bagels are made of) , to the dreaded testicle-splitter of Gotham’s dirty boxing. There’s pretty much no move that the dark knight doesn’t know.

But when you think about it, his reliance on certain back-hand techniques, are kind of….ridiculous.

Corridor Digital came up with the video above, which showcases such Bat-hand techniques as the vanilla Classic Backhand, the Foggy Knight and Around The World. Meanwhile, my bat-hands are so bad, that I manage to KO myself every time I reach for the TV remote control.
