The Deadliest Warrior

Anyone else watch this program on Spike TV? I don't watch much TV at all, but I enjoy this show. I'm very much into weaponry and fighting styles, growing up w/a mother who collects medival swords and myself later being interested in martial arts. I enjoy watching them scientifically analyze the weapons in use, but I don't put much stock into the final computerized battle (unless my chosen side wins! ). Most, if not all of the time, it's the warrior, not the weapon.

I have seen it several times, my favorite episode was Knights vs. Ninjas, or was it Knights vs. Samurai.......I don't remember. Very good show.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

It was Knight vs. Pirate. That was one episode I was disgruntled at the end...I believed the Knight would/should win! Plus, I kinda' didn't get them saying Pirates were "warriors". Pirate is an occupation, not a fighting style.

The other disgruntled ending of mine was the Spartan vs. Ninja. The Ninja didn't win but that was to be expected. It was completely not a fair match up...Spartans were Battle Tanks and Ninjas were Assassins. I love the one Ninja kid, too...he was sooo~o cute!! A little too cocky, but still cute!

One I was happy with was Samurai vs. Viking!! Samurai prevailed and I just love how much smack talk the Samurai descendant gave the two Viking experts!! It was so funny!

I have seen all of those and I guess I was kinda mixing them all up. LOL. I had forgotten all about the pirate. I agree, they weren't warriors.

I have seen a couple of episole and I had a every mixed opinon of the show. I question the test of them, and how accurite those test are. I did find the IRA vs the Talabin enjoyable. The Green Berets vs the Spec Naz was one I had to question the test and weapons that choose to test.

MirriorStage 2009 this is a website you/ your mom would enjoy and the is a thread about that show in the forum part of it: Association for Renaissance Martial Arts - Swords & Swordsmanship

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Oh I've seen one episode! My bf was the one who told me about the show and showed me the episode of the Knight vs Pirate. It was the coolest show I had seen in a long time! I don't watch tv so I would miss a lot
