Chessboxing! The basic idea in chessboxing is to combine the no.1 thinking sport and the no.1 fighting sport into a hybrid that demands the most of its competitors – both mentally and physically. In a chessboxing fight two opponents play alternating rounds of chess and boxing. The contest starts with a round of chess, followed by a boxing round, followed by another round of chess and so on.

All I can say is: Where is my chessboxing sports manga?

Other people might say: This should be worked into a Sheppard/McKay story. Somehow, it seems like it would fit.

Also, there's some interesting discussion in last week's post on Tezuka, Ryoma, and shounen sports series so have another look if you like the tenipuri meta.

I keep thinking about posting other things and then thinking I should wait until after Escapade, when people are here and not distracted. Sadly, I 'm not going to be at Escapade this year. I hope you all have a great time!
