Cardboard Tube Fighting A Growing Sport In San Francisco
The League is an international organization which hosts cardboard tube fighting based competitions in numerous cities across the globe; including; San Francisco, California; Melbourne, Australia; and Tokyo, Japan. Each tournament consists of a number of fighters who attempt to knock each other out with flying tubes. This game was inspired by street brawls where the fighters would throw their tubes at one another with little or no regard for personal safety. The concept has taken the fighting world by storm and people from all over the world are now participating in these tournaments. This article will introduce you to this exciting game and the many teams it has brought together.
The first battle, known as the Starter Kit, is generally considered the easiest fight to start with due to its simplistic rules. All duelists are provided with a cardboard tube filled with their own personal tubes. These tubes are not meant to be thrown at each other; rather, duelists must stab their opponents with their tubes. The scoring is based on how many times a duelist is able to successfully stab his opponent with his tubes.
After the first battle, most people begin to wonder if this is the right tournament for them. Upon completion of the starter kit, players are then required to purchase their own cardboard tubes and start the tournaments. However, this very same concern has been considered frowned upon by the organizers of this cardboard tube fighting league.
Most likely, the reason why this rule is considered so frowned upon is due to the fact that most of the fights in this game are one-on-one affairs. In other words, most of the battles in this particular game are one-on-one duels where there is little or no fighting outside of the matches themselves. As such, the referee rarely sees any type of fighting beyond the matches themselves, which usually results in little or no stoppage time at all. Due to this short amount of action, spectators are forced to either sit on the edge of their seats and enjoy the matches, or simply turn their heads to the TV hoping that there will be some type of action to break out somewhere during the tournaments.
Some spectators have taken to watching these tournaments just to see what the action is like, which can be somewhat amusing. However, due to the lack of stoppages and the close proximity of the participants, there is only so much they can see. For this reason, a few different rules have been put into place to increase the excitement of the Cardboard Tube Fighting events. Most recently, two different cameras were brought into place in the crowd. The camera on the left hand side of the stage was equipped with a timer so that when it began running the other camera would begin recording.
There are also three core beliefs that have been developed by the organizers of the Seattle Cardboard Taped Fighting tournaments. First, all participants are required to have their own clothing with them. This is because they need to be able to get into the tournament rings quickly and do battle with each other. Second, all participants are expected to abide by the rules of the game, which include having a valid fighter license from the Washington State Department of Licensing and Regulation. Finally, all participants are strongly encouraged to drink plenty of water before, during, and after the matches.
Cardboard Tube Fighting has exploded into popularity in the last few years
in both San Francisco and Seattle. In fact, there have been more cardboard tube fighting events held in San Francisco than there have been in the entire year in Seattle. Even though the law mandating beverage consumption is in effect in San Francisco and most other cities around the country, promoters feel that it is still best to encourage the use of alcohol by the participants in this type of wrestling matches.
In an effort to promote this unique form of wrestling in the United States, a group of high school students in San Francisco staged a “Wrestlefest” in January. The San Francisco consulate and various schools got involved in the promotion, and local companies like Kinko’s, KFC, and Subway sponsored the event. Numerous amateur bouts also took place between different high school students in the area. Although the police were called to break up a fight that broke out at one of the venues, no one was arrested as a result. Several promoters from the area say that the amount of police presence was excessive and they felt that it was best to leave the contests to police officers.
