NEW TV show March 9, 2013 on full-contact weapons fighting
« on: February 19, 2013, 05:33:55 PM »
The MythBusters crew filmed this one in August 2012 and included the Phantom high frame-rate camera for crisp super-slow motion.  This show includes a group of San Francisco Bay Area fighters wielding sticks, chairs, keyboards and chains.  Have a laugh at some aging office workers fighting.

Hidden in America: Underground Fight Clubs Premieres Saturday, March 9 at 10 PM E/P From backyard brawls in Silicon Valley to kung fu battles in the backstreets of the Bronx, HIDDEN IN AMERICA investigates the codes and core values of America's underground fight clubs. What drives men to battle their fellow men in unrestricted hand-to-hand combat? Why are some fighting styles outlawed, forcing their proponents to operate in clandestine locations? And with the rise of no-rules Mixed Martial Arts, is America becoming addicted to violence? Experts explore the reasons and hidden desires behind fight club members' primal urges to do battle, and the heavy physical and emotional toll these often unsanctioned clashes can have.

It's on iTunes . See the super slo-motion chain fight. The hardest action was not included, probably to maintain a G violence rating for TV.
