Alot of this reminds of the some XMA documentary I saw some time ago...except this looks interesting to me. I love watching stuff about the capabilities of the human body. I'll be watching it.

Matt,

Will you give a heads up to us all when it comes up?

I'd dearly appreciate it (can't remember anything these days! )

yea I'm pretty excited about the show, hopefully it wont be anything like that XMA Discovery did a while back. This one seems ok because in that trailer they actually read out data that they got, Discovery didnt. High expectations

This seems much better than that XMA documentary. This looks really amazing, and useful too, havent you ever wondered what damage you could cause with a full power shot? Yea you hit a bag, but you dont really know what that would do to a person?

It has to said:

Crash test dummies, dont hit back

The XMA documentary was good for what it was.. a documentary on XMA. Some of the cutscenes describing the body mechanics behind some basic techniques were cool, but the majority was an insight on XMA forms and etc.

Has anyone got any available clips of it so I can get a look at it.

This show is awesome...you can see the trailer at www.ngcfightscience.com
They also have podcasts interviewing the fighters, scientists and directors of the film. Pretty cool stuff. Can't wait to see it on Sunday!
