I'm sorry, but I'm kind of tired of someone using their skills to show an incredible acrobatic feet as "defying gravity." No one is defying gravity, if anything they're showing a greater understanding of gravity through combining momentum and their training into these maneuvers.

Don't get me wrong, it's impressive as hell, but unless they themselves are causing them to move slower and not the camera they're still following the laws of physics.
