Geekery: Harlem Knight Fight
Tyler Durden has nothing on this armored fight club…
“For Damion DiGrazia, joining the Air Force, graduating from Harvard and Columbia and putting together a lucrative career as a management consultant at a top investment bank in Manhattan wasn’t enough. He had one more, slightly less conventional item for the bucket list. When this Sunday school teacher isn’t spreading the Good Word, he prefers a metal fist to the teeth. DiGrazia is the captain of the New York chapter of the Armored Combat League — a sort of medieval fight club whose members smash the hell out of each other while dressed like attendees of the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones. ‘This is a sport that requires passion,’ he explains. ‘Because there’s no responsible way to do it.’ We met with Damion at his East Harlem training studio and followed his team to their regional matchup with New England.”Advertisement
Would you watch this if it was shown on TV like other big league sports?
