Rites of Passage: No Holds Barred Fighting is a documentary that explores the extreme sport of bare-knuckle fighting from a world-wide perspective. Directed by Bobby Razak and released in 1999, this 94 minute film is distributed by Vision Films and produced by Craig Caryl and Oliver Withoft. While considered a sport by most, no holds barred (NHB) fighting exists in many cultures. Similar to the life or death fights of the ancient gladiators, NHB participants literally risk their lives while battling for the win. This warrior attitude is explored in-depth while chronicling how the fighters prepare, the fight itself and the aftermath, both physical and emotional, for specific NHB athletes. The film is organized in three separate sections. In the first section the film gets up close and personal with the Inoue brothers. Section two explores the 2000 World Vale Tudo Championship held in Brazil and the third section reviews the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC23) held November 1999, in Tokyo, Japan.moreless
