  • A great show that opens the various martial arts of the world to a Western audience, sometimes for the first time! And with a second season starting 9/26/2008, there is more to come!

    Really a fantastic show. Hosts Jimmy and Doug, a professional fighter and a veteran soldier, respectively, travel the world in search of tutalage in myriad different forms of martial arts.

    What I think is particularly great is the fact that unlike copy-cat show Human Weapon, Jimmy and Doug seperate at the beginning of their training. While studying the same art, they found time to study different branches.

    At the end of an episode, each of them face off with a regional expert on the form they've been studying. A downside of the show's format is that they only spend a week in training. It's brutal, but it's only a crash course in the form. Still, it gives the audience a rough idea of what the martial art is all about, a bit of it's history, and the potential to go off and learn more about it!
