Chamball: Martial Arts Meets Dodgeball
Chamball is a new conceptual sport which combines elements of dodgeball and martial arts.
ChamBall is a sport that Charles Amis created while completing his thesis in Interactive Telecommunications at NYU, in which he told a story through a fictional sport. The sport has been actualized, and a group of players consistently meet at the Heckscher Picnic Area in New York’s Central Park every Saturday at noon to play.
The sport is fast paced, aggressive, and can be played outdoors or indoors, with the primary object being depleting your opponent’s points by hitting them with the ball anywhere except the elbows to fists and knees to feet. This means that blocking is essential to a player’s survival.
