National Geographic presents: Scientists and masters of self-defense use cutting-edge technology to analyze fighting techniques.
Fight Science brings together a dream team of scientists, motion-capture specialists and CGI animators, along with a cross-section of champion martial artists, to analyze the world's greatest fight techniques in ways never before possible.
Mixed Martial Arts
Fight Science analyzes the unique fighting styles and capabilities of legendary UFC heavyweight champions like Randy Couture and Bas Rutten, UFC former light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz and two-time World Submission Grappling Champion, Dean Lister.
Special operations are elite military units trained for unconventional warfare, often to execute dangerous, covert missions behind enemy lines. They must excel beyond normal human capabilities, and display extraordinary mental ability.
Using crash test dummies, state-of-the-art high-speed photography and 3-D computer animation, a group of scientists will examine the techniques used when six self-defense experts react to actual scenarios.
Special operations forces are an elite breed of soldiers with the ultimate military training, superior physicality and extraordinary mental ability, especially under stress. The Fight Science team pushes these fighters past their breaking point.
Fight Like an Animal
For centuries, martial artists have been inspired by the animal kingdom. But can a human strike as fast as a snake, be as nimble as a monkey or as powerful as a tiger? The Fight Science team tests whether kung fu experts stack up.
The Fight Science team explores the deadly art of stealth fighters, from attacks and hidden defenses to infiltration and escape skills and discovers some results that defy science.
To examine methods of turning victims into victors, a team of self-defense experts employ a variety of advanced biomechanical sensors, high-speed photography and 3D animation in the custom-designed Fight Science lab.
They keep our streets safe using high-tech equipment, knowledge of human behavior and nerves of steel. The Fight Science team invites SWAT officers to the lab to put police techniques and equipment through the ultimate stress test.
