Scrap the padded sticks
Wow. Another base finds reasons to strike back against the beast. Somehow, I'm more at ease about my own.
Now for the news that really piques my interest - how long has parkour MMA been around before it showed up in my feed? I find this fascinating, this crossbreed of urban obstacle course and close-quarter combat training. Until I realize it's urban close-quarter combat training repackaged as mere entertainment, from a place where "threaten to target" means "here's a list we've had in the crosshairs for ages." Yeesh.
Forgetting boys and their buttons for a minute - I do know what cat breed I want now.
