Fight Quest is a television show on the Discovery Channel that had a preview episode air on December 28, 2007 and began airing weekly on January 4, 2008. The show followed Jimmy Smith and Doug Anderson as they travel around the world learning different styles of martial arts, spending five days training with notable masters of the styles they are studying, before exhibiting what they have learned in a final demonstration and/or fight. According to quotes by the hosts,[1] the show was mostly unscripted and a true challenge. At the end of February an updated DVD box set was released that included the final three episodes not in the original release.[2] The series was canceled at the beginning of the second season and only three episodes aired, the last one ended on October 3, 2008.
