One day, our Physics professor decided to show us this documentary in class. My first thought was "I hope we don't have to sit through a Chuck Norris or Steven Seagal movie." I was absolutely amazed at the special effects and the detail to which the program went. We learned about things like torque, efficiency of the different weapons, as well as similarities and differences between Chinese and Japanese weaponry - for example, the Chinese broadsword is mainly a thrusting or stabbing weapon, whereas the Japanese broadsword, or kitana, is a parrying and chopping weapon. Demonstrations of the bo staff and other weapons were also given.
All this culminated in the Extreme Martial Arts championship. Multiple champion Matt Mullins, who had been away from competition for a number of years, seeks another title. However, he's up against very stiff competition.
