With THN's Fighting Issue hitting newsstands this week, it's a good time to look back on one of the craziest on-ice brawls you will ever see.

Who knew that when it comes to hockey, Japan and China are rivals the likes of Canada and Russia.

There’s little in the way of details about the brawl, and it looks like it’s taking place between teams that aren’t much older than 14 or 15. There are a few memorable moments in the video, several of which are players leaping in to the aid of a teammate.

Let’s hope everyone was all right at the end of the punch-up and that the two teams got it out of their system after letting loose on each other.
