Latest BBC Chess Boxing Video with Christian Parkinson

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

Chess boxing is a hybrid sport combining the mental workout of chess with the physical challenge of boxing. Opponents play a four-minute round of blitz chess, followed by a three-minute round in the ring, alternating between the disciplines until one player is checkmated, or knocked out. In the latest installment of the BBC's Live the Story series, Christian Parkinson visited a North London chess boxing club to test his mettle in the ring - and on the board.
