Have You Seen This? Freestyle unicycling will impress
Placeholder Image
UNIVILLE Here on Have You Seen This? and around the Internet, videos of intense and sometimes random skills abound.

Some are a bit confusing if not entertaining, some seem too scary to even watch, and some are just flat-out impressive.

Todays video, featuring the freestyle skills of unicyclist Gene Chiu, falls equally into all three categories.

Its always a wonder when someone chooses a unicycle as their chosen skill, since we associate it with clowns and the absurd. But if you think about it, its easily argued that even staying on top of a traditional unicycle takes more skills than virtually any other type of wheeled contraption out there. So right there, unicyclists are a step above.

Then when see someone like Chiu add skateboard- and BMX-like tricks, things really kick up a notch. Chiu leaps up several stairs in one go, navigates stairs, leaps over large gaps and executes some fancy footwork. His strength and control leave a viewer no choice but to be impressed.

Kuma Films also has a 12.5-minute behind-the-scenes video that includes even more impressive skills from Chiu.
