文字稿:

Keeping the tradition afloat... This is swimming samurai-style.

Mutsuo Koga shows off his skills in the Japanese city of Yokohama.

But once he's in the pool, it's sink or swim. The armour weighs 15 kilos.

The feared warriors developed this form of swimming around the 15th century. They had to brave waves and currents.

Nowadays, the most difficult part seems to be getting out of the pool.

Vocabulary 词汇:

afloat 漂浮在水上
shows off 展示
sink or swim (比喻)成功或失败
warriors 勇士
to brave 勇敢面对
