The Playfight Ritual intends to create a safe space for men* to meet each other physically in 1:1 confrontations surrounded by a circle of witnesses.
During the ritual we will keep talking to a minimum so that our bodies can take over the communication.
Each man* will silently set his intention before a playfight, so naturally each one will be different, ranging from a dance with little body contact over soft cuddling and rolling around to sweaty fights to find out who is stronger or more agile.
There is no system of external judgment. Each playfight belongs to the two men* engaging in it. It can be ended at any time by a word or by double-tapping your partner or the floor.
For safety reasons, we will not stand up when engaging in a playfight. Each participant is asked to not intentionally cause injuries to anyone.
There will be a warm-up phase and an explanation of the rules before the actual ritual starts.
Registration via message is appreciated, but not necessary, you can just show up at the event. Please be there in time so we can start together.
You don't have to playfight at all, if you don't feel like it. Rejected invitations to fight are a valid part of the ritual. However, I would like to ask you to stay till the end of the event, as you will be a part of the ritual whether you are playfighting or not.
Wear comfortable clothes in which you can move freely and bring some dry clothes for it might be cold outside and you most likely will be sweaty.
If you want to take off your socks, the dojo requires you to wash your feet, so you might want to bring a small towel. There are no showers, but two foot-washing basins on site.
This event is open for everyone who identifies as male.
The ritual is donation-based. The suggested donation is 10-20 Euros, but no one is denied access for lack of funding.
