Fight Science is a
television program shown on the National Geographic Channel in which
scientists and martial arts masters work together to analyze the
world's fighting techniques, to compare the disciplines and to find
out which one has the strongest hits, kicks and deadliest weapons.
The show also tries to prove through science if certain legends in
fighting are possible, such as whether a one-punch knockout is
possible, or if ninja are as nimble and deadly as stories tell.
There is also a feature on human strength, wherein a man hits his
head on bricks in order to shatter them. This show has many
spin-offs such as Sport Science.
This documentary features fighters Rickson Gracie, Alex Huynh, Bren
Foster, Li Jing, Dan Inosanto and Glen Levy.
