Anyone can take pictures of a cat and they’ll likely look good. However, Japanese photographer,┬áHisakata Hiroyuki, wanted to capture cats in action poses. Specifically, he wanted cats to look as if they were leaping in the air doing kung fu.

To capture such poses, he has a toy in one hand and a camera in the other. Then as the cat jumps and leaps for the toy, he captures the leaping animal so they appear to be performing martial arts fighting moves. Judging from his pictures, his cat pictures truly make cats look like they could take on Bruce Lee.
