anyone catch this god awful show yet? I couldnt sit through one episode.....basically its MTVs martial arts "tournyment" reality show thing

Yeah i've been watching it.

I didn't really think it was "god awful" but it definitely lacks realistic sparring matches. I think it would be alot more interesting if:

1. The girls and the guys weren't mixed.
2. Contact to the head was allowed (perhaps with headgear)
3. The competitors were a little less spread-out in terms of experience. They've got olympic medalists in there with people who just recieved black belts. It seems as if there are only a few people who know really know what they're doing.

Its poor point sparing with a dance off mixed in. Thanks MTV for teaching our children the meaning of martial arts.

The sparring was pretty awful and it kind of looked like most of the contestents are Tae Kwon Do. Would have been interesting if they threw different "traditional" styles in there.
