Pillow fighting is not just for slumber parties. Pillow Fight is a real-life semi-professional women-only sporting event that is all about pillow fighting, founded by Pillow Fight League (PFL) Commissioners Stacey P. Case and Craig Daniels in February 2004. It is based in Toronto, Canada.
As long as the fighter uses a pillow to attack, leg drops, submission holds, punching and other moves are prohibited within the match. The fighter is not allowed to hold her attacker's arm when she decides to attack with a pillow, if that happens, she will most likely to be warned or disqualified from the match.
A prestigious military academy's annual pillow fight resulted in 24 concussions and other injuries in late August, when some students placed hard objects into the pillow sacks. Since 1897 the United States Military Academy commonly known as West Point has held an annual overnight pillow fight for freshman.
