This review is from: Human Weapon Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I am very pleased to see they've decided to release "Human Weapon" onto Region 2 DVD. As a martial arts documentary series it was outstanding and it's a great shame that they didn't choose to continue it into a second season.
It is a little Americanised for my usual tastes in documentaries but makes up for that with the content. I was particularly pleased they included an episode on the US Marine Corps MCMAP system and an episode on Sambo. Two martial arts which in my opinion don't get enough exposure and are of particular interest to me.
As a TV series I would give it 5 stars. HOWEVER I've decided to knock off a star in this review due to the fact that the Region 2 DVD set is missing 3 episodes. For some strange reason the episodes "Passport to Pain", Taekwondo and Ninjitsu are not included in this DVD release, despite being included on the Region 1 DVD set (or so I've been told).
A highly recommended series but just be warned that this DVD release is missing 3 episodes.

You're right, those episodes are missing! I'm a Kyokushin (Karate) fighter so love the stand up arts, and thought that the taekwondo episode was very good and I'm surprised it was left out as it is so popular compared to perhaps Eskrima and Pankration... Great post, although I'll do my own due to bumping up the ratings for this great series.

Yeah it's strange to me that they'd do that. I've seen both the Taekwondo and Ninjitsu episodes and both are very good.
Definitely do your own review, this is a brilliant series and deserves the recognition. Why oh why didn't they do a second series?
