A Peaceful Fighter gym in downtown Eugene was anything but peaceful during an incident last month in which a 24-year-old man is accused of fighting too rough.

Now, Eugene police have arrested a man on a charge of second-degree assault.


Justin Kyle Antolin, of Eugene, was using the gym on April 20 when he punched a teenage girl in the nose, causing extensive damage, police said.


The two had been paired up for an exercise, police said, in which physical contact was only permitted with foam rolls.


Ten days later, police were contacted and began an investigation.


Antolin was arrested Wednesday. Second-degree assault is a Measure 11 offense that carries a mandatory minimum sentence of nearly six years upon conviction.


The Peaceful Fighter gym, on Eighth Avenue, teaches mixed martial arts, women’s self-defense, jiu-jitsu and other types of combat.

This is the part that lost me right here

physical contact was only permitted with foam rolls.
So they where doing what exactly when he went off and popped her?

Probably fighting with boffers of some sort. (Heavy foam sword or other weapon stand in that hits like a stiff pillow)

In which case balling a fist and breaking your training partner's nose is a total **** head move.

Any chance that you could right cross someone by accident in that sort of match?
Also WTF sort of MMA school plays with?

BTW

I Do love fighting with the N-Swords at home with my daughter but I would probably laugh my ass off if I was at a school and they busted them out.

Lol
The ones I've seen are more like a pool noodle with a dowell in the middle for rigidity and a handle for swingin'.
Given the disparity between a 24 year old and a teenage girl I'd say the chances of it being "accidental" are pretty slim.

I can't get the picture to load, but there's a two handed version of the nerf sword that could totally break a nose.

This one?

The Vendetta double sword looks like it could be fun too.

Yeah that's the one. I have been hit in the face with one of those and they have a pretty good smack for being nerf.
