    You didn't see the thread because it was a NINJA thread.

    Now THAT would make a good reality show! (OK, for a little while.)

    .

    if you look hard enough, you will see thier displeasure with it though.

    re-watch the "kung fu" episode again and look at the wing chun segment, he makes a comment about "but that punch can't end a fight" (something like that).

    I didn't see the ninja episode, but I'll have to watch it for subtilities.

    I don't think this show will last too long, because they aren't doing an episode for each sect of a martial arts. They had an episode of Kung Fu in general (I didn't see it, but what I heard they mostly covered sanda/san shou, wing chun, etc.) and Kung Fu I think just means art or skill that you can get better in (or something like that. Someone please correct me with the ACTUAL translation) so they could have covered painting and cooking in the episode too (the Ninjutsu episode they showed cooking for some stupid reason). And the Escrima episode, they also covered Kali. And in the Savate episode, I am sure they talked about Zipota (Basque version of Savate basically), etc. But, in hindsight, this has been a LONG first season, sixteen or seventeen episodes. That's a lot.

    They already have season 2 in the works. I know Sumo is one ep planned. There's also been talk of one for wrestling, one for BJJ and I wouldn't be surprised to see Systema either.

    Yea jus FYI..the skinny lil dude actually trained in the Bujinkan. He actually believes this stuff works, which is strange cuz he is actually a competitor in MMA..(plz note in all his fight he uses techniques he learned in MMA)..
    Also what does the genbukan have to say about this episode since they were left out and human weapon very explicitly stated hatsumi was the "last ninja"
    (i guess they were left out cuz the skinny dude actually trained in bbt)

    And if jus as friendly advice..if you wanna learn to sword fight..either take fencing (i did it in HS..awesoem sport) or Kendo (another awesome sport) any good fencer or kendo practitioner could of dominated that end sword fight challenge.

    Fencing and Kendo would hardly make one a swordsman.

    Are there any good youtube links to these programmes? we don't get them here.

    I'm not sayin ull be a good swordsman. But kendo/fencing guys are much better at sword figthin than the bujinkan guys showed in Human weapon. (maybe other bujinkan guys are better but im basing it jus on these guys they show). i had very limited sword experience and when I went up against a kendoist and i got my ass beat (my wrists and forearms hurt liek hell), and jus fyi i do train in Ninjutsu. and I'm willing to admit that other people in other aspects are better and kick my ass.

    Do you have any proof that Jason Chambers studied BBT? I have never heard that before.
