Pao Jiang - Pow Jang is a wicked new type of hard core dodgeball

Piao Jiang is a wicked new type of dodgeball where they throw spiked balls! The little spikes can make you bleed, but trying to dodge them is sure to warm your meridians! After the game the players get together and drink hot chocolate that is so hot it causes pain - that's how tough they are!
