Martial arts,human body and physics
19 November 2006 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

If you like martial arts and anatomy of the human body also physics, you cannot take your eyes from this documentary film. This documentary combines art and science like an action movie. You can learn how much damage a kung-fu master, boxer, taekwando world champion, mui thai warrior or a ninjitsu master cause to a dummy human model. You can also learn the speed of their hits.

In the second part of the documentary, we get information about the weapons of martial arts ; Katanas, nunchakus , shrikes , bows and etc. They use jel models also used in ballistics to show the harm they get from a weapon.

I really enjoyed and learned when I watch this one.
