Bored Sports Fans Resort to Violence – Shin Kicking

For a competition that will really knock you off your feet, take a trip back in time with a cherished British sport that’s been going strong for 400 years: shin-kicking.

Shin kicking takes manliness to a whole new level. Originating in England in the early 17th century, the combat sport involves two contestants attempting to kick each other on the shin until one hits the ground. The Shin-Kicking World Championship is part of the Cotswold Olimpick Games, an annual event held on Dover’s Hill, north of the English town Chippen Campden.
