The OCTAGON
Blood & Steel
The Genesis of Mixed Martial Arts

This documentary reveals, for the first time, facts and historical information

about the origins of MMA that have never been told to the public. With
exclusive interviews with Martial Arts Historians, magazine editors,
journalists, and legendary Martial Arts teachers, the truth about where the MMA
comes from, is finally unveiled.

On October 23rd 1951, the legendary Helio Gracie fought the Japanese Champion
Masahiko Kimura in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This event changed the history of
combat sports. Forty-two years, later in 1993 the first "Ultimate Fighting
Championship", a more refined version of the fights originally known aw "Vale
Tudo" (*no-holds-barred") - took place in Denver. Colorado. Some described it
as the "wildest event in the history of sport fighting"... but before that
night on November 12th, a family name had already been established and their
members were considered as the "toughest fighters in the world." They set the
foundation of blood and steel for what today is known as MIXED MARTIAL ARTS,
the fastest growing sport in the world.

This documentary takes you back to the true origins of the UFC and MMA as we
know them today. The original concept was forged in Brazil, until one man
decided that it was the right time to finally answer the age-old question of
"what is the most effective style of Martial Arts"... and changed the world of
fighting sports forever.

Dennis Alexio 

Professional Karate's Greatest Fights

Featuring DENNIS ALEXIO

Alexio vs Al Mim's, Homsey, Kochergin & Salazar

 

Presented by Bob Wall

 

Dennis Alexio, One of the world's greatest professional karate fighters (often dressed in his native Hawaiian grass skirt) had an outstanding record of 60-1 "tough ass" attitude in the ring made him one of the most formidable fighters, if not the most formidable, to ever step inside the squared circle. His round house kicks to the head often delivered the "good night" to his opponents, and there was no avoiding his phenomenal power. These devastating high kicks were matched only by his axe-chopping low kicks ti the thigh that were absolutely paralyzing to his opponents. This is a must-watch DVD for any karate aficionado!
