The first rule of Brookings Fight Club is: Ask a guy in a bunny suit to serve as your referee.

Ever wanted to kick your boss's ass? Ever been so frustrated with an intern you just wanted to clock him? It's been one of those weeks at Brookings, so we started Brookings Fight Club. Intern Ben Bissell and I went a few rounds today. He's trained in krav maga. I've trained in taekwondo and aikido. Wells, who is not trained in anything, officiated.

Just another Friday at the world's greatest think tank.

Many thanks to the folks at Brookings Fight Club Productions for putting together the video.
