Quite full of Bullshido. I know this show's been discussed before, but now us Yanks can take a peek at it. Here're three episodes, quite riddled with pseudoscience and chi-hugging. They seem to be trying to prove that chi exists or some crap like that.
Some of the highlights:
No Touch Kiai Knockouts
Standing on eggs
The list goes on, and that's just the first episode.

The only part I liked from that series was the mounted archery. I have an old long bow so I can respect those skills.
Other then that it looks like someone took a big **** on tv to me.

There is one where a master actually debuncks all the CHi tricks though, which along with the archery one is probably the only one worth something...

That thing where a bunch of people try to push Chris Crudelli is a rather simple trick. You only have to be able to hold off the very first person. All the others in the line don't add a bit of pressure.
I had a teacher in 5th grade teach the class and go through it with all of us.

The episodes on Escrima aren't too terrible.
Number of bottles of beer downed by me and my girlfriend within a half hour while playing the Channel 7 "how many times will they say 'snow' game" during the "Blizzard of '06": 3.5 each.

P.S. That show would be so much cooler if Matt Thornton was hosting it instead of Chris Crudelli.

Makes me laugh. Seriously, some of the stuff on that show is just too stupid.
Escrima/kali stuff pretty interesting tho. Except for the dancing version with blindfold slap fights.
Taiwanese version of SWAT doing CMA training is interesting too.
Mostly the show is full of ****, but there are a couple of good things.

What claim to Martial Arts brilliance does the host of the show make? I seem to remember him jumping around waving his arms about apparently showing off his skills.

You're gonna laugh....
Went to China in his teens and found an old-skool kung fu instructor to whom he apprenticed himself for a number of years at a small school in the mountains, and then travelled south east asia seeking to learn more about various martial arts.

Really? Then he must know how to do Fireballs, Dragon Punches and Hurrican kicks!
