Shaping Up On TV


Sixteen out of shape men will be given the opportunity to get fit via ancient Muaythai martial arts on M-Net Action’s new realty show produced by Gathered Moss Productions.

Launching on 15 February and presented by Collin Moss, the 13-part Way of the Warrior will see men between the ages of 30 and 45 embark on exciting adventures as part of their quest to become battle-ready warriors.

Muaythai originated in Thailand and is one of the oldest forms of martial arts. The TV show will push contestants to their physical and mental breaking points as they fight to survive elimination each week. The last man standing will be named “the “Ultimate Warrior’.

The judging panel for Way of the Warrior will be made up of Muaythai World Champion Sifu Quentin “The Dragon’ Chong, his trainers, a healthcare professional and a psychologist.

“M-Net Action is excited to be to be in partnership with Gathered Moss Productions in what we hope will become a signature show for the channel. We are always on the lookout for shows that will live true to the brand and offer an adrenalin rush for loyal viewers,’ says Channel Manager Khosi Khanyile.

The show will see 10 guys selected from Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg based on their video entries. These hopefuls will be interviewed by Sifu Quentin “The Dragon’ Chong, his trainers, a healthcare professional, a psychologist and the producers. They will then be put through their paces and depending on how they fare, 5 contestants from each city will then be chosen to start training at the Dragon Power Gym.

In the end, eight finalists will compete according to their points seeding and the show will culminate in a spectacular event fight night in the 4000 seater Grand Arena at Grandwest Casino.
