Zachary Holland Baker,
Ever wonder how that dude pulled off that powerful swing kick? Jason Chambers and Bill Duff travel the world to show you on the history channel the unique styles of martial arts. The two know basics of fighting; which make it good, because no one wants to see some know it all host for an hour rather, they learn as you learn and they actually participate as though they were new students each time.
Every episode; they study with a master of the particular style and challenge a selected fighter to a bout that takes place at the end of the hour. Only one of the hosts gets to enter the fight.
During the show it reveals several fights of the discussed style which is a really awesome feature in the program and makes it exciting. The fight at the end isn't always that great because Chambers and Duff don't have a lot of time to train: but I have seen them get hurt; i.e. broken bones and sometimes they'll bleed.
The styles consist of: Kung Fu, French Savate, Muay Thai, varies karate, along with much more.
The show is worth watching if you're into thehistory of martial arts. I've even seen some that I didn't know this was surprising. If you're a UFC fan you might also enjoy this show for the fact of knowing where some of the fighting styles came from.
