This MMA gym hits you in the face with pepper spray and then forces you to train

This MMA gym hits you in the face with pepper spray and then forces you to train

And by train we actually mean run some bizarre obstacle course that involves a grappling dummy and a wooden table suspended by two lawn chairs.

Jungle Gym Martial Arts based out of New York claims they are taking their MMA training to 'another level' by spraying their students in the face with LEO grade OC pepper spray and forcing them run through some gauntlet of items you can get in the clearance aisle at Home Depot. We can't really call it a maze since it's entirely in some guy's backyard. However what makes it incredibly difficult is not the fact that you can't see six inches in front of you, but your eyes are searing with 5,000,000 worth of scoville heat units. In comparison if you squeeze the juice of a habanero pepper directly in your eyes, it only has a scoville heat index of only 250,000 -- that's 20x less than what these guys at Jungle Gym Martial Arts are experiencing. Check it out below.

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.

I suggest bean bag projectiles fired from 12ga shotguns WHILE they do the course. Next level shit.

My friend did something like this when he went through the police academy. 20x hotter than habanero (I assume that's what Zues meant by haberno)... That is seriously FUCKED UP!

How is this martial arts training? It's "Get Sprayed with Pepper Spray and Carry Something" training.

And when he crawls through the little chair fort representing what I assume is a doggy door, priceless.

Why not just beat the shit out of them with a full riot squad while they run an obstacle course with a heavy bag?

The only reason why someone would train for a situation where they have been pepper sprayed is if they're training to become a better rapist.

these guys should run a womens self defense class at the same time. the women can be at the start of the obstacle course and do a groin kick pepper spray combo
