Cold Steel Challenge 2010

Cold Steel Challenge 2010

Cold Steel, Inc. of Ventura, California is known around the world as the leader in hard-use knives and tools for outdoor, utility, military, law enforcement, and martial arts.

On September 25th, 2010, Cold Steel hosted its 6th Annual COLD STEEL CHALLENGE international weapons fighting competition. It is a celebration of the warrior lifestyle. It's a place where our friends and customers can get together to fight in a controlled, respectful, and friendly environment.

This year's event was a rousing success. Competitors came in from as far away as Belgium, Hungary, and England, as well as from all over the United States. One of the international competitors, Andy Smith from Great Britain, participated in the event as the final chapter of a documentary film, "Is It 'Cos I'm Fat?" chronicling his nine month journey from "couch potato" to competing in the ring with some of the best martial artists in the world. Andy participated in all four fighting events.

G4 Television Network was also in attendance. Host Weston Scott not only visited the event, but also participated in the knife and stick fighting divisions. An extensive segment was filmed for the very popular "Attack of the Show" program for future broadcast on G4.... More
