Summary Violence in ice hockey is legitimised through the culture of the game. However, much research on this area has been undertaken through statistical quantitative research which is unable to assess the extent to which culture and character impact on the occurrence of violence in the game. This research takes a qualitative ethnographic methodology which focuses on in-depth observation and accounts of players in how they justify their violent behaviour and the extent of violent acts within the sport
