    "this martial art was made famous by the Spartans and was first formed nearly 4000 years ago"

    How is this possible considering Hellenic civilization only dates back to 750 BCE? Whereas back in 1000 BCE, the Greeks were Mycenian and was in the Bronze ages. 4000 years ago they would've been living in villages and huts.

    And Spartans didn't create their super-soldiers until the 7th century BCE. And the city-state of Sparta of the ancient Greeks didn't exist before the 9th cent BCE...earlier city state being Mycenian and a different civilization...

    I can't think of all the discrepancies off the top of my head, but martial arts gurus can list numerous errors to each episode of this show. It is entertaining none the less.
