2.0 out of 5 stars INCOMPLETE SET - Be Forewarned! February 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
As much as I enjoyed this series, I really bought it for two very brilliant episodes: the one on Stealth and the one on the Chinese Animal Styles. However, neither of those episodes are on this DVD and that is why I'm returning it. There are only 3....THREE...episodes on this disc out of the total 8 episodes. National Geographic is saying that they couldn't work out a deal with the producers of Fight Science to release more than 3 episodes. Really?! Then why bother releasing it at all when it's so incomplete?! Strangely, some portions of those other episodes are on NG's site for viewing but they're not allowed to be on the DVD? I have never heard of a TV series releasing a DVD with less than half the episodes on it. Can you imagine getting the first season of "Lost" and not only getting half the season's episodes but they're not even in order? Boggles the mind.

I can't believe I paid $16 for 3 episodes. You're better off watching portions of all 8 episodes on National Geographics' site for free.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only three episodes June 13, 2011
By Maurine
Includes Mixed Martial Arts, Fighting Back, and Special Ops. Interesting shows, but does not include the ep that Bren Foster appeared in so very disappointing in that respect. Wish those eps would be released as it's quite spectacular and interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating! March 31, 2009
I would not believe some of the feats performed by the martial artists on this video were possible if I hadn't seen them here - for anyone interested in martial arts, military special forces, or human physiology, this will be extremely interesting viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it December 13, 2010
By SaK
I have 25 years in various martial arts, 11 years military, and 8 years law enforcement (6 on tactical teams). This is the best show I have ever seen on TV, and the only video of a TV series I have ever purchased. Fantastic.
It is important to realize what this video is and isn't. The reviewer who gave this a one star, completely missed the point of the show. It is not an instructional video - in fact, never, ever buy an instructional video. Go take a class from a live instructor if that is what you are after.
It merely shows what the human mind and body are cabable of. If you are a martial artist or fighter, in law enforcement, or in the military - this DVD is worth checking out. (Or just interested in the above subjects.)

5.0 out of 5 stars MMA September 5, 2009

The best thing about this dvd is the MMA episode, it's worth getting just for that. The other 2 are worth watching, but maybe only once.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a load of &&^%$
This DVD is SUPPOSED to teach techniques for self defense then show what the human body is capable of.

I will take the self defense portion apart first.
