Pugil Sticks

Today I had the chance to go out and photography the company doing Pugil stick training. This was one event that I hadn't seen in person yet, so I was looking forward to it. At the end they had a competition between the platoons. Each Drill SGT picked their strongest male & female to compete against the others. 

The platoons cheered each other on, by chanting and singing cadence. 
It was so fun to watch, they have a great team spirit about them. 
This is one of my favorite pictures from the day. I was out there for 4 hours taking pictures and watching. 1st SGT had to step in for a minute and break things up before it got to serious. (lol, no one was seriously hurt, although a few did have to go to the ER)

Drill SGT P. watching his PVT represent the plt. He was on edge the whole time, it was pretty comical.

Each PVT was able to get a 2 minute training / practice round!! 

Drill SGT Y. cheering her plt on and giving them some love for a job well done!!!!
I had a lot of fun out there watching and chatting with some of the PVTS. This was a great moral booster for them, as they don't have much longer to go till graduation.
It was a bitter sweet day as well because it was my last day to go out and take pictures for this cycle because I'll be leaving soon.
