Jason and Bill travel to Israel to study one of the deadliest and most effective hand-to-hand combat systems in the world. Specifically designed for the Israeli Defense Forces in the 1940s, Krav Maga is dirty, anything-goes fighting meant to disarm and destroy assailants carrying multiple weapons.
Our hosts journey to some of the most sacred religious sites in the world while learning to escape deadly chokes, deflect weapons, and perfect ruthless counterattacks in their quest to become true HUMAN WEAPONS. And urban assault exercises put them through their paces in a real-world environment. Our hosts discover Krav Maga is not only physically demanding, but also a necessity in its war-torn homeland.
They've had a week, the Israelis have had about half a century, so how do you think Jason and Bill will do in the final showdown against an entire unit of elite-level Krav Maga professionals? Medic!
