I used to sell and organize such bullshit team-building activities for corporate clients.
I remember one CEO being chosen as a team leader in a paintball game and actually believing the choice had nothing to do with his position.
I remember the other team's leader being very uncomfortable, he dutifully lost the game though.
Those clients were very keen about strategy theories applied to business, and at the same time absolutely unable to grasp them.
Luring those people into having a go at Kyokushin sparring was one very attractive fantasy for me.

I recently learned in my Social Psychology class that in clinical studies, the most effective activities for interpersonal bonding have the following attributes:
1) They require trust between participants
2) They are novel activities that the involved parties would not otherwise participate in
3) They are fun
The notable characteristic is #2 - seems that karate would fulfill the requirements.
If I hadn't just returned from 1/2 Yard night at the local bar, I'd find sources, but cut me some slack on this one.
Completely unrelated - blue means supporting member? - why did I think it was bjj belt level?
