I'll be back-ached

Bizarre story, random chap kicks Arnold Schwarzenegger in the back, motive undiscovered at this time. I mean, Ahhnuld's acting isn't that bad.

Could better situational alertness on A.S.'s part have prevented this?
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

Possibly.

E-distractions cause lots of people to zone out.

From that angle, it appears the assailant bent his legs at impact. Good, glad for it, because that is not how flying kicks work.

Looks more like a drop kick from pro wrestling.

Supposedly the man who did this is known for this kind of thing.

The good news is Arnold is fine and continued with the event as if nothing happened. Shows how having a healthy and strong body in your seventies is in one's own best interest.

Good for Arnold. He didn't even fall.

@ :59, the attacker was crowding the bodyguard. Maybe the bodyguard should have turned and watched the attacker more closely. Glad Arnold was okay.

From "Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked on Saturday during his visit to South Africa:"
Harmeet Kaur, CNN, on May 18, 2019 wrote:The 71-year-old actor and former California governor was in the country for Arnold Classic Africa, a multi-sport event held in Johannesburg each May.

A video shows Schwarzenegger on the sidelines filming a rope-skipping competition on a phone. As he turns back around to hand the phone over, a man runs from behind and jump-kicks Schwarzenegger in the back.

Security quickly grabbed the man and took him away. A few moments later, a person can be heard repeatedly shouting, "Help me! I need a Lamborghini!"

Schwarzenegger did not seem fazed. The video shows him leaving the venue soon after, and a few hours later, he posted a video of himself on Twitter greeting fans like nothing happened.

"Make sure to tune into my @Snapchat to see all 90 sports we have here at the @ArnoldSports Africa! Fitness is for everyone."

Eventually Schwarzenegger addressed the incident and reassured everyone he was fine.

"Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I'm just glad the idiot didn't interrupt my Snapchat," he wrote on Twitter.

Schwarzenegger also asked fans to take focus off the man who attacked him by instead sharing videos of the young athletes at the festival.

"Do me a favor: instead of sharing the video of the guy who wants to be famous, watch some of our @ArnoldSports athletes like this young hero proving that fitness is for everyone who deserve to be famous. They're on my Snapchat," he wrote.
