KLIMANIS: There are no formal rules other than use better judgment than your own and don't walk into this with the intention of maliciously hurting someone either physically or spiritually. [...]
GIBSON: By the way, Gints, we've been looking at this video but when you came on, I was wondering if my eyes deceived me. Do you have what amounts to an injury across the bridge of your nose and is that from this?
KLIMANIS: Well, this is from this activity two days ago. We do fight with a facial mask, which enables us to swing weapons at one another. The mask doesn't offer a lot of protection because it's light, but without it you'd lose an eye having a stick or having a blunt training object being stuck into your face. Safety is always important.
Silicon Valley Fight Club: Dorky, unmanly, but still ridiculously dangerous.
Bonus notes: When Gints says "this activity," he's using "distancing language," a speech pattern used in awkward situations to deny responsibility. Come on, Gints! Be proud to be a battling nerd!
