In the ultimate search for a HUMAN WEAPON, mixed martial artist Jason Chambers and former football pro Bill Duff put their bodies on the line as they train in the most lethal forms of combat.

HISTORY follows Jason and Bill across the globe to learn the history, style, and methodology behind 16 unique forms of combat. On their quest to master everything from karate to Muay Thai and Eskrima Stickfighting, Jason and Bill explore ancient relics, unusual villages, breathtaking landscapes, and hidden pasts in order to truly understand the complex development of each individual form. They study with legendary masters and face intense challenges before putting their newfound skills to the test in a final bout with a master in the discipline.

With crisp CGI blow-by-blow simulations and fascinating factual details, HUMAN WEAPON is an action-packed series that pairs history and culture with down and dirty combat.

Human Weapon is a show that aired late last year on the History Channel and is hosted by martial arts fighter Jason Chambers and former football pro Bill Duff. They put their bodies on the line in every episode of this show and it was entertaining and informative on every style of fighting they learned. The best part of each episode was the end where one of the two hosts would take on a master in the martial art they just learned. Certain episodes feature such MMA stars as Cung Le, Randy Couture and Fedor Emelianenko!

Episodes include:
DISC 1: Muay Thai: Ultimate Striking; Eskrima Stickfighting; Karate; Savate Streetfighting; Bonus: Master Fights
DISC 2: Judo: Samurai Legacy; Pankration: The Original Martial Art; Krav Maga of the Israeli Commandos; Marine Corps Martial Arts; Bonus: Additional Footage
DISC 3: MMA: America's Extreme Fighting; Kung Fu; Sambo: Russia's Extreme Fighting; Cambodian Blood Sport
DISC 4: Silat: Martial Art of Malaysia; Passport to Pain; Ninjutsu; Taekwondo; Bonus: Master Moves

This show is awesome! The formula is simple, each week, Jason and Bill go and learn about a new martial art from the people who really know. As one would expect from the History channel, not only do they learn about each fighting style, but also the history behind each style and how it fits into the history and culture of the people who developed it. As Jason and Bill learn various moves from a particular style, they show a 3-dimension demonstration of how each move works. These computer graphics really illustrate the power and skill of each martial art. Then at the end of each episode, either Bill or Jason have to go up against a real master in their art to see how well they learned. Simple, but awesome! I can't wait for the next season of Human Weapon.

I'm 74 and live in Australia. My daughter Alex. is 50 and still trains daily doing Kung-Fu, so she bought this DVD for me to understand her love for her style.
This show brilliantly showed me many styles and gave me an insight into her love for Martial Arts.
Thank You.
When's Season 2 coming out?

As a former Tae Kwon Do student myself, I found this series very entertaining, and unfortunately was another History Channel series (such as Dogfights) that was replaced by other unworthy surrogates.

Both of the hosts (Bill Duff, a former college football player for the University of Tennessee) and Jason Chambers (a Jeet Kun Do expert) travel everywhere from the far reaches of Asia to even Europe (Greece, Russia) to learn various martial arts techniques and go up against an expert of their respective martial arts at the end of the show. What was interesting about this series was the computer animations that served as a visual aide in elaborating how certain techniques are performed.

The only thing that I was slightly disappointed in was the fact that this show could have showed more basic moves while cutting back on the chatter that both hosts had with martial arts experts. However, this is a very slight blemish (and I emphasize slight) because I realize this show was developed to provide a general outlook to those who may not have ever been exposed to the fighting styles that were aired with show (such as Eskrima which is better known by my Pilipino brethren as Arnis [pronounced are - niece]).

All in all, this was a great series and I truly recommend it for anyone with the slightest interest in martial arts. I have a 5 month old son who I plan to enroll in a martial arts discipline by the time he reaches 4 years of age. This show helped me revive my interest.

I've only watched about one-third of the episodes, but I love this show. The show gets five stars. The hosts provide enough commentary, but do not overwhelm the show, and the computer animation sequences allow you to follow along and practice the moves.

Several of the chapters on the DVD are missing the first several minutes, which included the introduction and origin of the martial arts (Silat, Ninjitsu, Savate). These chapters started with Chambers and Duff in the dojo practicing, but the missing parts left the viewers wondering what is the name of the dojo, who is the master teaching them, what is the master's background and what was the origin of the martial arts. It would have been a very good documentary DVD, if they included the beginning/missing parts.

This is an AWESOME show. Too bad it only had ONE season. Thats the only thing lame about this series is its only One season.
Two guys who go mainly around southeast asia as well as france, U.S.A., Isreal and Russia to learn, train and later put their newly learned skills to the test in a final battle with a local champion. Eskrima, Silat, Krav maga, MMA, Cambodian martial arts, Muy Thai kickbboxing, and USMC martial arts are highly entertaining episodes. I love how it also goes into the history of the style that the guys are learning in each episode. The CGI animation though is a pretty clever idea.
The USMC segment was pretty interesting and awesome. I was highly impressed. I love how they train in an area doused in CS gas and how the Marines condition themselves in between sparing rounds with kettle bells. God bless the Corps! Wish the army couldve thought of that(Army Combatives is just a rip off of BJJ). Again I love the CGI animation that explains each move on this show. Makes it easier to see and understand the moves being practiced. If you're into martial arts and learning about newer ones and the history of them, this DVD set is for you. They couldve covered Brazilian Jui Jitsu, Kempo Karate, Hap Kido and maybe even Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do and anything else I havent mentioned.
