    Which is your favorite episode so far?

    Originally I said Muay Thai but that was only because there had been 4 episodes but now I have to change my vote...my favorite is again a tie but between two completely different episodes, Pankration and Krav Maga.


    Krav Maga is awesome for self-defense and I wish I could learn it but I would have to say overall Pankration is my favorite between the two if I had to pick because I am a huge fan of wrestling based martial arts.

    I agree i think the Karate episode was the least appealing for me. Savate has been the most informative and ineresting to watch. Nice balance of fighting and hisorical context.

    I liked Muay Thai the best followed by Karate. The Savate episode was really interesting as well. It's nice to see a blend of Eastern and Western martial arts.

    The new Judo episode that came out last night is my favorite, because that is the only fighting style that I'm really familar with.

    I liked the episode Karate, but mainly cause the fight. I also like the eskrima(spelling?) episode. I don't think I saw the Muay Tai episode.

    Well if you haven't seen the Muay Thai episode you still have a chance to because of the Marathon before the Krav Maga episode.

    We have a new winner. Krav Maga. I love that style because it is based on actual combat situations. Not to say that Muay Thai (my second fav) and Karate aren't lethal in their own right, but Maga looks like how a real battle would turn out. They teach you to fight multiple opponents at once and to use anyhing and everything to your advantage. Just like real combat.

    The Muy Thai episode is my favorite at the moment.
    Followed by the Judo, then Karate, then Escrima, next Pankration.

    The Krav Maga & Savate style didn't really seem like a complete fighting system. They were more like combinations of various other systems. They somehow seemed incomplete...sure they are effective, but they just are missing that little something in my eyes.

    I'm gonna have to change my answer....the Taekwondo episode is my all time favorite! Neither Jason nor Bill escaped unscathed.

    My favorite episode has to be the Sambo episode. In the begining Fedor Emilenko said that Bill and Jason were in danger of getting their *** kicked. And yet, Bill crushed the guy in the fight at the end. The stunned looks on the Russian crowd's faces where hilarious.

    i really liked krav maga the most, i liked how it had a lot of practical applications. it's not what most people think of when they hear martial arts, but it's no less deadly.

    i also liked pankration (extreme mountain training) and mma (my first episode - thanks xbl marketplace) because it showed the various techniques an mma fighter needs (striking, takedowns, takedown defense, and submissions) an mma fighter needs to be successful. and both jason and bill did well in that ep. going up against a former ufc champ? one that beat randy couture? not easy. props to bill on that
