Whether you play any kind of sport or you just enjoying drinking with your buddies at a bar, you’ve surely tried to come up with a secret, long-winded handshake that involved a multitude of moves to impress everyone lucky enough to witness it.

If you invent just one epic handshake with a friend or a group of friends, you’ve done pretty well for yourself. But what about the apparently Dutch rugby player, who invented (and, more impressively, who can remember) seven different epic handshakes?

Be inspired …

But before you go out to the local watering hole and start copying these moves, remember not to refer to them as a Dutch Handshake. Because, as Urban Dictionary points out, there are plenty of other meanings for that phrase.
