They should've gotten a host that resembled Bear Grylls from Man vs. Wild. Now he's a great host. Smart as hell, maintains professionalism, while making the show a whole lot of fun.

yeah.. but hey it could be worse they could have the host from future weapon XD he has no soul

huh thought it was just me that thought they were kinda whiny. they're in 3rd world countries and they're like "this is our locker room?" wtf? but when they're not bitching, they're sort of cool.

I'd like to see the people they fight NOT go easy on them.

I watched the Karate one just a day or 2 ago. I like how they don't protect their face and buddy just came over the top and landed one on the chin lol. Karate fights are kinda weird though.

Lol, yeah. Those dudes are damn tough though. I mean, their bodies and whatnot. Their fighting style might not be too great...but did you see that karate teacher beating the hell out of his students to toughen up their bodies? Insane.

The Savate one disappointed me, too. In the beginning, they showed how tough the art is, and they showed that one man who continued fighting with broken arms and ended up winning. The fight in the end was plain retarded. The so-called champion wasn't doing anything too special, and the fight ended up a draw. Yeah, all that hype for nothing - no one's going to try learning Savate after that episode.

I agree with the Savate comments. Bill Duff landed one of those leg pushes on the big, bad champ after only a week of training? It'd be kind of understandable if Chambers pulled it off since he's an MMA fighter, but Duff is a football player...

i'm downloading the judo episode as we speak. Hopefully watch it tonight. There isn't a lot of MA where I live mostly TKD and karate. But there is judo, it starts up in september and I'm thinking I'm going to start training it.

Yet Duff seems to be the only one who wins the fights in the end. Seriously, when he wins in the end, it destroys the purpose of the damn show. It's like, yeah, those guys are human weapons...but their wasting their life practicing techniques that won't even help them defend against a former wrestler and football player. For God's sake, Duff doesn't even wrestle with those guys, and he still comes out on top.
