To be hosted by Jason Chambers (a mixed martial-artist and professional fighter) and Bill Duff (former professional football player and wrestler), the series would have episodes on martial art forms ranging from Kung Fu, Karate, Taekwondo, Judo, Muay Thai, Nijitsu, Cambodian Bloodsport and Savate Street Fighting.

Apart from this, consumers can also take part in online and on-air contests, where the winner would win an Xbox 360.

In addition, the programme will also have on-ground presence with professional martial arts experts showcasing the different techniques of combat to audiences in select malls across Delhi and Mumbai.
