a truly amazing documentary, made by truly amazing people
15 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This documentary is one of very few good documentaries on the martial arts. This documentary is mainly about the science behind the martial arts, the body mechanics, your physiological structure etc. XMA uses advanced CGI special effects to show us whats happening inside your body. What happens to your bones and muscles when fighting, breaking or performing demonstrations? XMA gives you all the answers. Fight scenes are very well choreographed, and individual demonstrations even better. Alongside the science is the story of an ex-martial arts champion Matt Mullins, a 5 time martial arts world champion who is coming out of a 2 year retirement to compete once again, with his world renowned trainer and good friend Mike Chat (7 time world martial arts champion). And as a third treat a little history on the way too!!

I recommend this documentary to any martial arts lover or student (like myself), mainly because what you see is real, all the kicks and flips are no illusion, its all real and truly breath-taking. When you see it you'll know why I give it 10/10.
