two combatants and a referee. The combatants face each other. The referee says the words "capital letter" and the opponents bow to each other saying the same phrase.

The winner is the one who puts together all three moves and their accompanying sounds in the quickest time. Good luck! Put your hands together and take a bow. Say the words:
"CAPITAL LETTER". Throw a short, right-handed punch in the air in front of you. Make the noise, 'Ha!'
