Tanaka Hiroaki doesn't simply use umbrellas to shield himself from the rain like us mere mortals, he beats it away and makes the rainfall fear him with badass and dramatic umbrella martial arts that belong in a movie fight scene.

He's being called the "Kasamurai" (Kasa is the Japanese word for umbrella) and the name definitely fits. Tanaka took what started as a joke about umbrellas being used as katanas in Japan at a drinking session into an actual skill that looks like a legit martial arts discipline. While he may just be doing it for laughs, we have to applaud how he takes the most mundane things like clothes on hangers and wields them like lethal weaponry. Take a look at a few of videos.
