    That's frickin' awesome!

    The rules explained, from one of the Youtube comments:

    Bo-Taoshi (or pole pull-down)

    - capture-the-flag-like game, played by cadets at National Defense Academy of Japan

    - two teams of 150 each vie for control of a single large pole

    - 75 attackers, 75 defenders per team

    - defenders begin in a position to protect to their own pole

    - attackers start at a position a distance away from other teams pole

    - a team is victorious if it is able to lower the pole of the opposing team to a 30 degree angle respective to the ground before the other team

    While watching the video it seemed to simulate Japan's treatment of the rest of Asia during WW2.

    I like the innovative tactics in this video:



    Look how they form a mega flying wedge at 1:47 so that they have a big scrumming unit which serves as an attacking platform, literally, for the runners coming in at 1:50.

    Smart.

    This is why I love the Japanese. Japan is full of order, beauty, wonder -- and batshit crazy.

    Because the AFL is a professional league with marketing and televised matches and you can talk to your mates about it. This is just some Japanese people being [strikethrough]odd.[/strikethrough]
