WATCH: Awesome New Combat Sport with Real Weapons and High Tech Armor

New technology allows martial artists to fight with real weapons, while high-tech armor measures the hits like a video game.

If you ever wondered what it would be like to fight with real weapons without the fear of getting injured, you are going to love this new technology. High tech armor is used in a new full-contact weapons martial arts combat sport called Unified Weapons Master (UWM). Two "weapons masters" (maybe one of them is you) go head to head in competition while intelligent armor, called Lorica, measures the force of blows and monitors the location of strikes from an opponent's weapons—from a light damage hit to a kill shot. It's like a video game or action movie brought to life.
