Fight Science (2006): S01E06 – Fight Like an Animal


Introduction

Fight Science is a television programme shown on the National Geographic Channel in which scientists and martial arts masters work together to analyse the world’s fighting techniques, to compare the disciplines and to find out which one has the strongest hits, kicks and deadliest weapons.

Narrator by Robert Leigh, the series featured fighters including Melchor Menor, Tito Ortiz, Bas Rutten, Randy Couture, Alex Huynh, Amir Perets, Mindy Kelly, Bren Foster, Amir Solsky, Glen Levy and Dan Inosanto.

Outline

Some of the oldest fighting styles in martial arts are based on the animal kingdom’s most effective fighters. The movements of the snake, the crane, the praying mantis, the monkey, and the tiger have inspired kung fu masters for hundreds of years – but how do humans really stack up to their animal counterparts? Fight Science will bring a menagerie of nature’s best athletes into the lab, to determine if a martial arts master can really fight like an animal.
