Not sure where to post this. Please move if this is the wrong spot.

I saw this on the Dog Brothers' Forum and decided to post here to get more exposure.

So they're asking for women who've been attacked and successfully defended themselves to come onto a reality show?

Then what? Have them duke it out amongst themselves, or will they be randomly attacked while navigating rope courses etc each episode?

I'm guessing it will teach others how to survive an encounter.

For some I think it can bring back some intense memories, so they probably will not want to be in this show.

For others they may want others to learn from their lessons.

The show is supposed to empower others.

My guess is they'll use a reenactment of the attack showing how it was countered. Then have an interview of sorts with the *victim* and discuss how their martial arts training was used to successfully thwart the attack.

Yep. Personally, I think it's a great idea.

I had often thought a reality show based on someone like me - a woman coming into martial arts at age 42 and the journey would be very interesting - (at least it would be to me if it were about someone else) but number one, I don't think the senseis would be very happy about the fiasco something like that would cause and number 2 - you see what "they've" done to other reality shows - skewed them to the point that it almost perverts the main theme of the show. Like with the tattoo shop shows - those have just turned into a joke. Used to be about the art and the stories behind it, but now it's got all these other side stories -the guys buying a bar (who cares????) and you are lucky to see 2 tattoos per show. I would not want that to happen to my journey (or anyone else's) Listen to me rambling on like it could happen...lol

I think shows like Fight Quest and Human Weapon demonstrated to advertisers that a martial art show is viable. A few now already exist and more are coming. Not sure how long this trend will continue.

well it sounds like it will either be very very good, and much better then the ones so far in many ways, or it will really really be horrible and a bad thing over all for the martial arts. I will be interested to see which.

Well, at least it's not one of those MMA reality shows on Spike where every other word is bleeped. That's exactly what I'd want to watch.

That's because they have English guys on and the American programme makers think what they say is rude! :roflmao:

Yep. This could go either way. Let's hope for the best. :asian:
