World Pillow Fighting Championships

World Pillow Fighting Championships is organized in the American town of Kenwood, Ca. The competition has been part of local 4th of July (Independence Day) celebration for 36 years. Everyone who is more than 14 years old can participate. Two competitors holding a pillow sit face to face on a slippery wet pole that has been set over a layer of mud. Your mission is to get your opponent into the mud.

Your pillow is the only "weapon." You have to hit your opponent at least every 30 seconds. After exactly one minute the fight gets more complicated. Then you have put one of your arms behind your back. After yet another minute you can again use both hands to hold the pillow. The match includes three rounds. The winner is a person who first wins two rounds.
