Discovery/Travel Channel did a series a while back based on a Sensei who travelled to different places in the world to study the roots of various martial arts. It has not played in the US yet but did play in Canada and the UK as I understand. I saw the Russian episode but not the others - based on that one alone, I thought it was quite good....but then, I'm partial to my art of course. In any event, the series is called, "Go Warrior" and I think a lot of you would like it - even if you're not a martial arts fanatic. Watch for it to come to the US eventually on Discovery or Travel channels.
