News: Martials Arts v. Ballet

This is an article from last month's edition of Maxim, the men's magazine. The reporter spends two weeks training in mixed martial arts then two weeks training in ballet.

"Which takes tougher stuff? I think it’s ballet, where the weight of failure rests only on one’s own shoulders. The girls in class aren’t so bad to look at, either."
[And that's not to mention the artistic side of dance...]

WARNING: This article contains very rude words that would shock my grandmother. To read it in full click here.
