I saw on MT a post about this series running on fitTV with Josette Normandeau as host. I watched the episode on Kalaripayattu, which featured a lot of wooden and metallic weapons training, including staves, clubs, swords and shields, and an odd two-pronged cross between a sword and a whip. I amright now watching the episode on capoeira. I missed the episode on savate which evidently included a fair amount of la canne. I'll keep watching Deadly Arts--it's a pretty good series so far! The host is from a Shotokan and Aikido background but tries different arts each week.
