    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    MMA, Kickboxing, Capoeira, TKD Documentary miniseries

    For those of you in New England, Cox Sports has been airing a miniseries that follows the lives and experiences of four martial artists in their everyday lives. It's very interesting, not just because it features my capoeira instructor, but also because it delves into the psychological aspects of why martial artists train and the compulsions they have to deal with. The first season has already aired, but I think people can still get it On Demand if they are in the Northeast. The second season is supposed to start sometime in January.

    Everyone else can check out the shows website: www.3degrees.tv Plenty of trailers and interviews to get an idea of what it's all about.

    Those of us not in New England will just have to wait until the series is picked up nationally (which should be happening soon)

    Just FYI.

    The only REAL martial arts documentary show is the one that features Bill Duff punching tiny non American people in the face. Unless Bill Duff makes a special guest appearance to punch your capoeira teacher in the face during the rhoda (sp?) I'm not interested.

    I'm afraid you will be disappointed. Bill Duff was unavailable for the shoot, as he already had an appointment puching tiny non Americans in the face at the US-Mexican border. But maybe next season we'll get lucky.

    Perhaps Tank Abbot could be substituted?

    Sorry. What's the name of the show?

    Oops. Forgot to give the name. It's called "3 Degrees."

    I'm interested to know how notable the other martial artists are on the national radar, or if they are only regionally recognized. Master Sayed Najem was an Olympic medalist, but I don't know how well people know Manny Neves and John Marzullo. Do these names ring any bells to anyone here?

    i don't get the point of the show.

    the masters don't fight each other, right? is it just a big hug fest about how they are overcoming obstacles?

    Um, yeah, it's not them just fighting each other. Otherwise it wouldn't be much of a documentary. It would be a UFC event that would take an hour, or an episode of "Ultimate Fighter" (which deals with more drama than just fighting each other as well, BTW)

    Every story ever written is about people overcoming obstacles. Dealing with a conflict is the whole point.

    This is a story about the lives of martial artists and how their training and philosophies relate to their interactions in the real world. It's pretty interesting in my opinion, and not something you get to see very often.

    And, having seen the first season, I wouldn't describe it as a "hug fest." Especially in the MMA segments; it gets pretty brutal. And anyone who has trained through injuries or people questioning your motivations for training, etc. will be able to relate. Kinda like Rocky. Those movies weren't just boxing matches.

    If only there was a systema guy eating food day in and day out....

    One can dream. I think that's a neat idea for a show, and will give a lot of insight into the fact that most practicioners aren't always meditating when they're not taking classes.

    Gives a real human side to the martial artists, and could help the MMA.

    Haven't seen the show though.

    Ooooohhh, you said delves and psychological in the same sentence. That must make the show worthwhile.

    Well, theres 3 minutes I wasted. I should have taken a **** instead. It would have been the same end result.
