I really enjoyed watching this series regardless of the hosts or any lack of acting. Just strictly on the level of a Martial Arts interest and not picking everything apart the history was good although brief. There did not appear to be any favoritism from producers in glamourizing one Art over the other. I watched some clips on youtube first then found it for sale. I would really like to find the second season but even History channel won't comment back if its availble.

HASH(0x9e206f18) out of 5 stars Very Good Show and DVD Set! June 23 2008
By MMAfan - Published on
Format: DVD
Human Weapon is a show that aired late last year on the History Channel and is hosted by martial arts fighter Jason Chambers and former football pro Bill Duff. They put their bodies on the line in every episode of this show and it was entertaining and informative on every style of fighting they learned. The best part of each episode was the end where one of the two hosts would take on a master in the martial art they just learned. Certain episodes feature such MMA stars as Cung Le, Randy Couture and Fedor Emelianenko!

Episodes include:
DISC 1: Muay Thai: Ultimate Striking; Eskrima Stickfighting; Karate; Savate Streetfighting; Bonus: Master Fights
DISC 2: Judo: Samurai Legacy; Pankration: The Original Martial Art; Krav Maga of the Israeli Commandos; Marine Corps Martial Arts; Bonus: Additional Footage
DISC 3: MMA: America's Extreme Fighting; Kung Fu; Sambo: Russia's Extreme Fighting; Cambodian Blood Sport
DISC 4: Silat: Martial Art of Malaysia; Passport to Pain; Ninjutsu; Taekwondo; Bonus: Master Moves

HASH(0x9e206f6c) out of 5 stars Part History, Part Competition March 30 2008
By Eric D. Peterson - Published on
Format: DVD
This show is awesome! The formula is simple, each week, Jason and Bill go and learn about a new martial art from the people who really know. As one would expect from the History channel, not only do they learn about each fighting style, but also the history behind each style and how it fits into the history and culture of the people who developed it. As Jason and Bill learn various moves from a particular style, they show a 3-dimension demonstration of how each move works. These computer graphics really illustrate the power and skill of each martial art. Then at the end of each episode, either Bill or Jason have to go up against a real master in their art to see how well they learned. Simple, but awesome! I can't wait for the next season of Human Weapon.

I'm 74 and live in Australia. My daughter Alex. is 50 and still trains daily doing Kung-Fu, so she bought this DVD for me to understand her love for her style.
This show brilliantly showed me many styles and gave me an insight into her love for Martial Arts.
Thank You.
When's Season 2 coming out?

HASH(0x9e5193a8) out of 5 stars Martial Law Aug. 10 2008
By Jazzin Knight - Published on
Format: DVD
As a former Tae Kwon Do student myself, I found this series very entertaining, and unfortunately was another History Channel series (such as Dogfights) that was replaced by other unworthy surrogates.

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.

I've only watched about one-third of the episodes, but I love this show. The show gets five stars. The hosts provide enough commentary, but do not overwhelm the show, and the computer animation sequences allow you to follow along and practice the moves.
