This is on the History Channel for a reason. Extremely educational and interesting as these shows go. I think it definitely serves it's purpose in showing the development of the martial art and the creators. I think that the hosts show the proper respect to each of the forms and their teachers. I also enjoy how they use the CGI to run through the move and how it works. True, the "master fights" are a little ludicrous but these individuals aren't totally new to these art forms. The one host especially is a MMA fighter which gives him experience in several different styles covered.
Over all an interesting take on the martial arts world. I enjoy the show.
