I want to share with you about a new show "Fight Quest", which has just completed its first season on The Discovery Channel. Fight Quest is the newest show to highlight martial arts and fighting. Other shows that have come before such as Extreme Martial Arts and Human Weapon have been excellent in the way they real martial arts and their applications. It seems The Discovery Channel has a winner in its new weekly series FIGHT QUEST. I have been featured on The Discovery Channel on several occasions teaching martial arts & self defense.
Fight Quest follows two guys Jimmy Smith a veteran mixed martial artist and Iraq Army Veteran Doug Anderson in their World Adventure to train and then fight in The Worlds top martial arts. Both Doug and Jimmy arrive in the Homeland of a Martial Art such as (Isreal) Krav Magna. and then split up and train with different masters . They train for a full week of grueling hard martial art workouts. On the last day they test their training against expert fighters in that art.
By watching the show you get a feel for the art of training that week, such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu against The World Famous Gracie Family. You have to gives these guys alot of respect . They take alot of punishment in both training and fighting. But they also get true knowledge of that art and its fighting techniques.
The First season just ended and Ive been informed new episodes are already being filmed . The last episode was my favorite "Kajukempo" or Kempo , my art and the art we teach in The American Academy of Self Defense. It was filmed in California where James Mitose brought the art of Kempo in 1947 from Hawaii. Both Doug and Jimmy had all they could handle facing Kempos Dragon Circle . But as usual they did great and taught the viewing public alot about the art.
