    Let's not go nuts here, if that was deadliest warrior the capoeira guy would have kicked a bag, the muay thai guy would have kicked a hanging pig carcas, the karateka would have kicked a wooden cutout of a man and the taekwondo guy would have kicked a melon stuck on a pole.

    Then a Krav Maga Israeli commando would come in and disarm all of their guns while some Russian dude shot Ballistic Knives into a wall while giggling.

    I hate this show.

    YouTube - Fight Science - Qi Gong Tested

    Striking with the bat was half the force of a punch.

    What I hate most about these measure of force segments on these crap shows is they never take the size of the fighter into account. Even though the Karate guy's front kick sucked, he was also way smaller than the other guys. Same with the episode where they tested punches, of course the little kung fu guy isn't gonna punch as hard a the huge boxer. Then of course there's averages that should be taken into account. Have the fighter perform 10 strikes or so and then see how the strikes look. I think most real experiments require multiple trials before something can be excepted as an accurate result.

    There are so many holes in the science of these shows I don't even know why I bother.

    It's not as bad as the time they "proved" a female boxer could hit as hard as a male one by making him throw a jab and having her throw a haymaker with a huge windup.
