Moment of Zen for this Monday. Carlos Condit and a flamethrower

moment-zen-monday-carlos-condit-flamethrower

There is a real sense of satisfaction when watching Carlos Condit wielding a gun of fire. I call it that because it’s Elon Musk’s, ‘Not a Flamethrower’. Let’s be real though, it totally is. It seems so simple in design; Like a Super Soaker, but with fire.

The Natural Born Killer got his hand on one of Musk’s products and whipped it out during a training session at Jackson/Wink. Equipped with only a mouthguard and compression shorts, Condit was very liberal with his ‘Not a Flamethrower’.

No reason has been given as to why the athletes at Jackson/Wink are now training with fire. A strong case can be made for it enhancing training because it forces fighters to respect getting burned.

Like in ‘Dodgeball’, ‘If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball’. The same thing applies here.
