Ever wanted to hit another man just to feel alive? Now you don’t need an imaginary alter ego to do so, thanks to the team in the Silicone Valley who frequently run their Gentleman’s Fight Club. The club is in place for those who are living the corporate life of a 9-5 desk job, who want to be more in touch with their animalistic side and who do so through beating up other men for 60 seconds. Uppercut is a documentary made by the boys at California Is A Place as part of their ongoing video portrait of the US state.

Other videos include stories about Real Dolls, Ping Pong and fallen business moguls. The stories are touching insights into the lives of Californians and give non-Californians a personal look at the unique group of people who inhabit the area. The project is ongoing and new videos are uploaded frequently. Stay tuned for more offerings.
