The martial arts have been practiced for centuries, forged out of an ancient Asian world of mayhem and intimidation, but in fact they are all about self defence, discipline and honour. Now, East meets West in a stunning application of visual technologies... and the biomechanical secrets behind the world's martial arts are revealed for the first time.
Using a unique graphic technique that allows for "in-the-body" animation of joints and muscles, experts demonstrate the basic principles behind muscular torque and leverage - creating fighting and sparring scenes unlike anything you've ever seen. Examine the physiology behind a roundhouse kick and witness how muscles spring and recoil during an attack.
Plus, masters showcase the fiercest weapon styles, such as the twin broad swords and they demonstrate how warriors can quickly master common household items - like a traditional Japanese hand fan - to devastate their opponents.
Wherever the martial arts are heading today the old masters would still be released. This is XMA the world of Xtreme Martial Arts.
