Fight Quest: From Viewer to Fan

Posted on Updated on

Many if not most BJJ enthusiasts are not only grapplers they are also fans of MMA or some martial art. At the least, they hold respect for them. I am no different.

I started off watching Fight Quest with hesitation; thinking I was watching a carbon copy of Human Weapon. For all intents and purposes it was, except they split them up as Crosschoke pointed out.

However, I found myself anticipating the next episode after seeing the first. After watching the boxing episode, filmed in Mexico City, I am a fan. I think they are able to cover more ground and you can see more locales by splitting the two up. Also, the training and locations seem more gritty on Fight Quest. I have always been a boxing enthusiast, not as much as of late, but the way they presented it showed me why I appreciated it so much in the past…

The above footage is not in the actual show. It just shows one of the main characters at a boxing match while they are in Mexico City.
