Cadet formations are often highly regimented, with those involved taking pride in the togetherness of them.
Spare a thought then, for one poor recruit, who - no matter how hard he tried - simply couldn't keep to the beat. Footage shows the cadets performing a walking exercise in Xiangyang, Hubei Province, China.
Their instructor repeatedly clicks his fingers for them to march, swinging their arms as they go. But one man seems unable to march in time. He swings his arms the wrong way and does not stop when he is told to.
Local reports suggested the marching was part of the military training given to temporary civil enforcement officers.
