"Uppercut" (2011) on amateur fighting with weapons
« on: February 09, 2011, 02:00:11 PM »
A few friends of mine and I are in this short piece on amateur fighting,
 in the series "California is a Place" by Drea Cooper and Zackary Canepari

Yeah, there isn't much fighting in the video as the focus is on the people.

Gints,

You're crazy!

No, not the fighting thing as I get that. I'm talking about paying full retail for chairs you're going to destroy?  :?
I got two words for ya... garage sale.

Nice video BTW.

Hey, they were on sale.  All of the local Goodwills/Salvation Armys stopped selling their chairs to me after they were left with a bunch of de-chaired tables.   The OSH chairs fell apart in the first 15 seconds, so  I recommend the $14.99 IKEA Terge, which is offered in lighter stain and a handsome darker stain.  Yuppie/Bobo chair fights cost about $30 round.

On a most serious note, be very careful when fighting with chairs and ask those on the sidelines to watch when the chairs smash into wooden spikes capable of killing anyone.

Duly noted!

As an aside, my little guy (soon to be 2 years) hit one of our cats the other week with his kid sized chair. Perhaps he'll be a future candidate for the Yuppie/Bobo chair fights?
Oh yeah, luckily for the cat, the chair is made from plastic so no spikes.  :lol:
