Sepak Takraw: Sport of the future or Hackeysack Volleyball


If you are wondering what it is we are talking about, you need to watch the video. Actually for this story to make any sense, you need to watch the video.

The story we are talking about is a new Asian sport called Sepak Takraw. No, not Deepak Chopra, Sepak Takraw.

The sports is essentially a form of Volleyball, played by three guys and a low net. If you look at the video, it kind of looks like a variation of "Hackey-sack". It looks like it because apparently you can only use your legs, chest and head to touch the ball.

Read the original story from RIGHT HERE

We don't necessarily buy the "It's the Toughest Sport on the Planet" headline. Sure, it looks like it takes an incredible amount of coordination, but the guys in the video don't seem to be struggling too much.

Either way, take a look and see what you think. We stick to what we called it in the headline, it's just "Hackey-Sack Volleyball".
