Knight knocks pawn the #$%@ out

My hairst... that is, the talented woman who cuts my hair brought to my attention what can only be described as the bestest game ever. Apparently it's big in Europe, like meat pies and energy conservation.

And after watching a few rounds, you can see why. It's got something for both the barbarian and librarian in everyone.

That's right. Chessboxing.

Alternating rounds of chess and boxing. The loser is the guy is forced into checkmate... or beaten senseless. What would your strategy be? I think I'd try to punch the other guy while he was figuring out his next move.
