The Violent, Graceful, Ancient Art.

What is the essence of the Badger-thrower and his art? It is the animal, the king of the dirt, the monarch of the burrow, that the Badger-thrower dethrones and defenestrates.
Is the monarch of the burrow.

The Badger-thrower slides his feet, dressed in soft leather, caresses the earth, moves like wind across the steppe. No sound betrays his voyage. He brings his hand down sharply, his strong muscular back flexes, his head is up and the deed is done. A diminishing shape tumbles in the bright blue sky a moment.

It is bliss.
