    :D Well, I don't believe it was an infomercial as much as it was a documentary with some information added.

    "See the one were the "insinuate" a cracked rib from the jumping side kick? and the guys is walking about, stretching his arms over his head !!!! what a fucking joke"

    I laughed when they explained due to " golden bell " and " iron shirt " traing thier ribs were able to take the 2200lbs force of the kick.

    I liked the arm bar.

    I liked how they used the same effect you see in TUMS commericials ("TUMS using scientifically-designed glowing blue stuff to neutralize the bad glowing red stuff in your stomach") to illustrate a hyperextended elbow.

    I liked when the one Power Ranger says "Wow! I kick like a car crash!"

    I liked how the praying mantis master was unable to perform even his own form without wobbling.

    HEY NOW!!! He's one of the LIVING LEGENDS of kung fu! Right there, in the flesh! And that's just basics, and the wobble is supposed to be there. Yeah right.

    I was amused by the dude spitting his water into the air before he did his katas/ sparring.

    He said, "I do it for two reasons: One, it helps me find balance; and, two, it's my thing, what I'm known for."

    Translation, I do it to get attention in an attempt to look cool, the same reason I do MA.

    Well, they themselves admitted that they do everything for flash and speed.

    But I do agree that it turned into one big infomercial for XMA.

    I was under the impression that it was called Extreme Martial Arts by Discovery. As in, it was about various martial arts around the world in their most "extreme" applications. Not the ACTUAL name of a SPECIFIC group/organization.

    I'm not discrediting Sharkey or the rest of them, but I was very disappointed. And miguk, I have to say I think it's bullshit to believe they didn't have any say in the narration. I'm quite sure that XMA has full control of what was sad, because they likely controlled the flow of information for Discovery. They performed the demos. They did everything in conjunction with Discovery.

    Now, having said that...

    The show WAS very graphically pleasing. The training hall looked great (although I think they used the same set from Black Sash, just different colour scheme). It definitely would've hyped me in my pre-training days. If they could bring that type of pizzazz to a "real" fighting documentary, THAT would be great. Something MAs and Non-MAs could both look at and enjoy and say "****, that's SO cool!"
