For all those HDTV subscribers, there's a new-ish show on Discovery HD Theater called Fight Quest. It follows two martial artists (Doug and Jimmy) across the globe, as they sample train in various styles. The show usually culminates with the pair, squaring off against stiff competition in the respective styles at the show's end.

Newish? It's been canceled for more than a year. New in HD, maybe.

I googled Fight Quest & it looks like the show was on in 2008. It does look like an interesting show! Hopefully I can find the full episodes on youtube.

Ok, well it's new to me (never seen or heard about it until a couple months ago).

Everything's new to someone, I guess. I wish I were just discovering Fight Quest- it's a really amazing show.

If you're interested, another very good show to look up on youtube is History Channels' "Human Weapon", it's a forerunner of Fight Quest.

Human Weapon was cancelled right around the same time as Fight Quest. It's such a shame, they really were two great shows.

Anyone know when season III of "The Contender - Asia" will be debuting? On what channel?

I watched the Fight Quest episode for Pencak Silat last week, it got me even more excited about spring coming. I'm really looking forward to some outdoor training.
