    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I'm not sure which one it was, but the "documentary" where they used crash-test equipment to assess which style was best at what was utter crap. The kung fu guy was tiny and the boxer was a beast, therefore "due to scientific evidence, boxing has stonger pucnhes". But because the kung fu guy could rapid fire his shitty little punches, they concluded that "kung fu has lightning quick strikes". He was a wushu guy! wushu! WTF?

    What's with this bullshit? If you measure a martial artist's strike, you can't just conclude that everyone in their style will be the same.

    I believe I saw the XMA show. They said something like "the best fighters in the country" being at the little point-sparring contest, with full gear. Give me a break.

    The only thing that those shows did, was make it look like if you know martial arts you should be able to do a backflip, if not your a fake. That is all they showed.
