In case you haven't seen it yet, History Channel is running a really cool series called "Human Weapon." The show features a different martial arts style every week, and the two hosts learn from various instructors and fight other folks every episode. The show includes very cool moves and discussion of the science behind the various fighting styles. They already ran shows on Muay Thai and Escrima. Upcoming episodes include karate, judo, krav maga and others.

I caught the Muay Thai episode. Really cool, never really payed attention to how much of it is about blocking and striking at the same time.

I have watched the show. Bill Duff (the big guy) went to my high school. He was a great HS wrestler. It is great to see a show that gets into the real parts of martial arts.

you should watch the biography on escrima on youtube its way more brutal than the human weapon episode. they show you how to train your knuckles where you have to do one arm push ups on broken glass.

Yeah I've noticed that Bill Duff has no wrestling what so ever and he's supposed to be a great wrestler from what I hear. The other guy is actually a pretty decent MMA fighter with a 16-4 record. Those were not MMA fights to say the least they were sparring matches.

Yeah, Chambers is no joke. My brother called me up all excited because he tapped the dude with the Twister.

The dude tapped out 2 seconds after he let go of the sub, looked silly. who taps after they let go of a sub attempt. Didn't look like they were going full out on either fights.

Fight Quest by Discovery Channel is far superior. They do way harder MA.
And get their asses beat down.
