Finally, a reality show worth watching!
If you haven’t yet heard about “Human Weapon” on the History Channel, you’re not alone. I just heard about it last week and set my TiVo to record it.
It’s a show about two guys who travel the world learning various martial arts. I just watched the “JUDO” and “KARATE” episodes back to back. All I can say is “Wow!”
The hosts, are Jason Chambers and Bill Duff. Jason is a mixed-martial-artist and professional fighter while Bill is a former professional football player and wrestler. Quite the odd couple but still it shows how two people from different backgrounds adapt and put their moves to the real deal test. They learn from various masters in a particular discipline then at the end of show they choose which one is to fight one of the systems top black belts (or equivalent). What a great concept!
New episodes come on every Friday either at 7pm or 8pm (thanks to TiVo, I don’t have to keep track of when shows come on!). This season, the hosts train and fight in following martial arts:
- Muay Thai: Ultimate Striking
- Judo: Samurai Legacy
- Eskrima Stickfighting
- Savate Streetfighting
- Pankration: The Original Martial Art
- Krav Maga of the Israeli Commandos
- Marine Corps Martial Arts
- MMA: America’s Extreme Fighting
- Kung Fu
- Sambo: Russia’s Extreme Fighting
- Bokator: Cambodian Blood Sport
- Silat: Martial Art of Malaysia
Who knows, maybe next season they will feature AKKI Kenpo?! Now wouldn’t that be something.
Has anyone else seen the show? Let me know in the form of a comment below.
