5 Lessons We Can Learn From Mayweather-McGregor

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

The superfight of the supercentury — a boxing match between noted boxer Floyd Mayweather and noted martial arts and far less noted boxer, Conor McGregor — ended reasonably predictably.

(Mayweather waited around for a little while, then decided to start beating up McGregor, then won in the tenth round by TKO.)

There was tons of money made all around.

But were there any lessons learned? Sarah found five of them, which she articulated for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Charlize Theron’s bad ass take in the action film Atomic Blonde was physically demanding.

According to Theron, her background in dance and her fight training were both important in pulling off the detailed fight sequences in the film.

I Was A Professional Pillow Fighter

The women of the Pillow Fight League on Good Morning America.

The women of the Pillow Fight League on Good Morning America.

GLOW, the new semi-fictional Netflix show about real ’80s TV show G.L.O.W., the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling, struck pretty close to home in the Risky Fuel household.

That’s because Sarah spent some time in her younger days as part of the Pillow Fight League, which, exactly as it sounds, was a professional pillow fight league.

There were a lot of eerie parallels between GLOW and the PFL so Sarah called up some old fighting colleagues and reminisced about it in a feature story for VICE.

Should You Train When Sick?

Training while sick.

There’s an ongoing debate in the Risky Fuel household about whether someone should exercise and compete in sports while they’re sick.

I believe in the “burn the sick away” philosophy. Sarah does not.

Her view is checkered, though, by the fact that competing in martial arts while sick is both gross and potentially plague causing/morally wrong.

She wrote about it for Asian World Of Martial Arts.
