Rocket News 24 reports that there is now an organization in Japan promoting the combative sport of pillow fighting. The All Japan Pillow Fighting Association recently held a tournament in Ito City.
The organization has an official pillow designed specifically pillow fighting.
What’s formal pillow fighting like? It’s similar to dodgeball, except that there are starting positions--lying down in bed. It takes place on a basketball half court with a dividing line in the center. Players throw pillows at each other and returned missed shots with fury. Referees stand by to enforce the rules and call time.
