The part of the archer being able to catch an arrow has been tested on mythbusters. They got a professional archer and he only sometimes caught the arrow in flight which brings the conclusion that its more luck then skill. Givin that conclusion then the possibility of him jumping up, grabbing the arrow in flight and shooting it back is even less likely. Id say this video is fake or he did this over and over till luck got on his side. Im betting on the fake option.

Speed of an arrow is only 150-200 fps and Mythbusters has been incorrect and/or incomplete regarding some of their "experiments".  Both Baseball and Lacrosse have similar projectile speeds and those are sports built around human hand-to-eye coordination versus small, fast moving projectiles.
