    I'd like to see MCMAP training (Marine Corps Martial Arts Program) since I was in the marines a few months ago. Whoever they challenged would be capable of killing them within 20 seconds if he wanted to.

    Haha, thats funny FastLikeMe! They just aired that episode last week.
    They didn't face off against anyone...they went through the final USMC bootcamp excercise...that 3 mile hike up the hill in full gear. Once up there they teamed up and walked through a trail and got ambushed multiple times by the USMC instructors.
    Jason & Bill had to fend them off using what they learned.

    Mcmap was a good episode really eye opening on why the Marines are so tough.

    Bear in mind they mentioned that NOT ALL the marines go through the ENTIRE program. Most of them only get a limited portion, just enough to keep them alive on the field.

    Wow I didn't think the MMA episode would be that good but it was real fun and informative shows how tough those guys are an out of shape six pack a day champ is still a champ and he whooped on Bill big time. Everytime I think of that beer gut flowing over the trunks going toe for toe with bill I laugh.

    Haha, he was kinda chubby. But alot of fighting styles don't rely on you being ripped.

    I just can't see them doing Capoeira or Kung Fu. The guys don't seem that fluid.

    I'd like to see their take on Sumo wrestling and Tae Kwon Do.


    There are like a thousand styles of kung fu out there. They've already done karate which has its core components derived from southern kung fu styles.

    I'm waiting for the Silat episode, and Capoeira would be fun to watch too.

    I would like to see them with weapons, kind of like the Escrima episode. Maybe they could do Kendo.
