Smash Brothers

Kogarah, Australia

“Break room” in a nine-to-five existence might be limited to the confines where lunch and coffee is had and the latest office gossip is spread.

Smash Brothers took it more literally: A room where one breaks things to release stress, let off steam and unleash the beast in a controlled environment without running danger of being apprehended for your actions or having to clean up the mess you leave behind all while being serenaded by your favourite tunes.

After entering Smash Brothers’ etablissement in the backyard of an industrial area of southern Sydney, the attentive and helpful staff equips you with a boiler suit, helmet, vise guard and a metal baseball bat to ward off any loose shrapnel before you are sent on your way to vent your frustrations.

Sounds basic, appealing to your lower instinct and not exactly constructive?

Well, that is the point – anger and stress management taken to the most primal level, resulting in the same outcome, i.e. deflecting and channeling physical arousal that anger can cause.

While hitting up Smash Brothers is of course not going to cure the roots of stress and anger and while for most of you wreaking havoc and putting the steel capped front of your Doc Martens to use is not unknown and was probably a rite of passage during your formative years as a young delinquent, it certainly is a fun activity to unleash your inner beast in a controlled environment with sessions typically lasting between 15-30 minutes. Depending on how much effort you put into it, the session can also serve as a bit of a physical workout.

All items, e.g. glassware, TV’s, toasters, bottles, cups, plates, blenders, etc., are usually sourced from restaurants, scrapyards or eBay and the remnants are being recycled after each day of mayhemic performances.
