The best one I've seen ( and I can never find it on Youtube ) is the one where a guy claims he can hack at his arm with a machete and won't get cut.
Predictably, he takes a lump out of his arm and Chris looks on with a "well, what do you think was going to happen, muppet" sort of look on his face, before assuring the guy he'll be ok and calling for first aid in a really sarcastic manner.
I Bet he never fought a bear like John west though..
Ah ha, thank you. That was laziness on part, I admit.

I also liked his questioning approach and the episode where the "Master" sliced open his arm and looked incredulous when he sprang a leak was quite funny.
Crudelli doesn't take himself too seriously and has a dry sense of humour.
He also stepped on to the mat in the TKD arena and took some lumps. Full credit to him.
It's been a very long time since the BBC "The Way of the Warrior" series so fair play to him for exploring his interest and sharing it with the viewer.
What's not to like?
On a related note, the Last Man Standing series is being plugged pretty hard in the UK, and it looks quite interesting.
I think it airs Tuesday.
Any chance of a youtube link???

Derren Brown is a debunker, he specifically states that what he does is not mysticism and other such bullshit.

heres the one i presume he means

Chris Crudelli is one of the good guys of TMA. The first thing I ever saw of him was teaching some people self-defence. Which was really good. He was telling them to use their belt, and he threw a load of money in some guys face and insisted on hitting them again and again and again.
Personally If anyone ever attacked me I'd just palm strike their nose and kill them instantly. But only in emergencies.
Doh! Good thing he didn't follow through on that cut, his friends would be calling him righty...
Notice how the blade rebounds immediately after striking his arm? That was too fast to be the 'ouch that hurt' reaction. He intended to come right up to the skin (with what looks like a fierce swing) and retract quickly. Just like pulling a punch.
Maybe more practice....
