In the rural mountains of Virginia, "Scarface" started a fight club in his backyard called Streetbeefs. Nicknamed after the burn scars on his face from being trapped in a house fire as a child, Chris is a former convict and felon. After losing many of his friends in the area to shootings and stabbings, he created the organization to combat gun and knife violence in a more controlled and moderated environment. What started out as an informal conflict mediation program turned into a greater community more powerful than Scarface could have ever imagined.
