An interesting Japanese unusual sport is called Bo-taoshi, which is a capture-the-flag-like game with elements of rugby and war. Shown below is a game played at its highest level, between cadets of Japan’s National Defense Academy. Two teams of 150 players compete for each other’s pole, the aim is to bring the pole down to a 30 degree angle. You have to watch the video to see how this is done. See more about Bo-taoshi.
