which show do you guys prefer since its essentially the exact same thing?
I've seen Human weapon, and it was a bit cheesy, and looked more like a half-baked biopic of each Martial art topped off with a "fight" at the end, which often looked like sparring. I thought there wasn't enough focus on each martial arts strengths, like in the Sanda episode, they talked on and on about the sweep, but didn't say why it was really useful as a technique outside of San Shou matches. Likewise in Muay Thai, they just sloppily did some exercises rather than explaining why Muay Thai is the strongest striking art because of the way the fighters move.
I havn't seen fight quest yet, I've been told its more scientific though. I saw a clip the other day, possibly on break.com
oh how being hit in the testicles can affect someone, which I believe was from the show. I've heard it's a decent production, but as always with these kind of things I'd advise anyone watching to take the pseudo-science with a pinch of salt; the kind of tests these kind of shows perform are often scientifically flawed and are only for demonstrating a point, not collecting quantifiable data. Actually, try not to see it from a scientists point of view (because I'm one) and just try and enjoy it!
