ComBATON, essentially a twisted mix of poor kung-fu and football, had to have been created in a late night, somkey bong session. I imagine while watching old ESPN hilights, one couch potato said to the other, “Man, this would be so much better… WITH NINJAS!’.
Fast forward to me stumbling along ComBATON.com, the official website of the ‘sport’. What kind of pisses me off is that this is now being taught in some schools (the clip below is from a FL school), which means that someone’s tax dollars are paying for idiot high school kids running around a gym, throwing sticks and kicking each other. It sounds like a badass idea, doesn’t it? A team of martial artists are going at each other in football, and instead of blocking they throw Street Fighter II style dragon kicks! Yea, after some careful research, it’s just not that cool. FAIL.
