This show brilliantly showed me many styles and gave me an insight into her love for Martial Arts.
When's Season 2 coming out?
Both of the hosts (Bill Duff, a former college football player for the University of Tennessee) and Jason Chambers (a Jeet Kun Do expert) travel everywhere from the far reaches of Asia to even Europe (Greece, Russia) to learn various martial arts techniques and go up against an expert of their respective martial arts at the end of the show. What was interesting about this series was the computer animations that served as a visual aide in elaborating how certain techniques are performed.
The only thing that I was slightly disappointed in was the fact that this show could have showed more basic moves while cutting back on the chatter that both hosts had with martial arts experts. However, this is a very slight blemish (and I emphasize slight) because I realize this show was developed to provide a general outlook to those who may not have ever been exposed to the fighting styles that were aired with show (such as Eskrima which is better known by my Pilipino brethren as Arnis [pronounced are - niece]).
All in all, this was a great series and I truly recommend it for anyone with the slightest interest in martial arts. I have a 5 month old son who I plan to enroll in a martial arts discipline by the time he reaches 4 years of age. This show helped me revive my interest.
