We always try to bring you cool Asian stuff as we run across it. This game is called Botaoshi, and is a new one to me. I guess the goal for the team with the pole is to keep it upright, and the other team is trying to get the pole to the ground. I always find it refreshing to see a sport without a ball. It’s a little less structured than the fight league, but a very entertaining minute of play nonetheless. I’m not sure why it helps the team protecting protecting the pole to have the guy on top, but there must be something to it since all the other youtube clips I watched employed the same strategy. I can understand why there’s a minute time limit on this game, seems like if it went much longer everyone would be too injured to go on.
