Chinese Fight Club...It Packs A Punch!
Apparently the Chinese lack such an imagination.
Wu Gong has opened a great new place called The Rising Sun Anger Release Bar.
Actually, it doesn't take much of an imagination to figure out what happens at this bar.
Patrons of the Nanjing, China bar can go have a drink, grab a smoke, talk to buddies, and beat the living shit out of bar workers. The 20 bar employees that have previously graduated from the Tina Turner School of Taking An Ass Whipping will dress up as your most hated enemy, and let you punch, kick, throw, spit on, and beat them....for a good tip. Customers get to take out their anger, the bar workers are well trained to take a beating, and Chinese society is spared the wrath of pissed off hookers, salesmen, and rice paddy farmers.
Wu Gong drew upon his experiences as a migrant worker. He believes with the evergrowing stress from industrialization, many Chinese workers need a place to relieve their everyday frustrations. Right now, the most popular patrons of Gong's bar are prostitutes and go-go dancers.
Nanjing residents are mixed with the idea of having such an institution in town. Many think it's a great idea. "Pressure in today's society comes from just about anywhere, from family or from work, from your boss or your girlfriend. We get no place to vent anger," said salesman Chen Liang.
Even experts agree with Mr. Liang. Zhang Yong, of Nanjing’s Xiaoran Psychological Consultation Centre said, "no matter how civilised people have evolved to be, some still find that violence is the best way to get rid of their burning rage."
White collar professionals are warming up to the concept as well. Jin Wong said, "My brother and I come here often and have two of the workers dress up as our wives. We then beat up our "wives" for the next hour. We get the anger out of our system, the workers get tipped very well, and our real wives are safe and sound."
Sounds like the Wong brothers are very happy customers.
But don't they know two Wongs don't make a wight?
I hear the bar's wontons are very derishous too. And if they're not, you can probably kick the bejeezus out of the cook while you're there.
