In a cramped Renton boxing ring, a group of masked men and two women are bouncing off ropes, body slamming each other and occasionally groaning in pain. All of them seem to be having the time of their lives. It’s the twice-weekly training session for the roughly 20 members of Lucha Libre Volcanica, an amateur league of Mexican-style wrestlers.

But whenever the subject comes up in America, it’s usually met with shock and revulsion. After all, insects in your food are something you complain about, not something you actually order.
