Stuntman, actor and martial artist Eric Jacobus has become known for re-enacting the more practical movesets of various fighting game characters in real life. In the latest installment of his “Real-Life Tekken” series, he takes on the attacks of the Spanish brawler Miguel Caballero Rojo.

Utilizing various props and bags, he emulates various attacks and strings from the character’s arsenal with extreme efficiency and masterful style, while the in-game version from Tekken Tag Tournament 2 plays alongside him for comparison. He breaks down Miguel’s style as “less martial arts than a mixture of brawling and tequila. Lots of hook punches, fakes, low kicks and beatdowns. It’s borderline practical!” These attacks might even come in handy if you need to really fight dirty in your next street brawl.

He’s also completed movesets for Hot Ryu, Devil Jin and Balrog recently. You can catch the full video below.
