Take ten beautiful girls, five grueling fights, one master Muay Thai trainer and unlimited perseverance and what do you get?
Fight Girls chronicles ten tough female fighters who are out for the fight of their lives and attempt the impossible - to beat the best female fighters in the world in a battle for the World Muay Thai Championship.
Trained by Muay Thai guru Master Toddy, a champion and Thai native, ten women fight for the opportunity to travel to Thailand and compete in the country's historic sport also known as Thai Boxing.
The eight one hour episodes place the women in Sin City where two girls battle in elimination fights in front of a live Las Vegas crowd each week determining who earns the right to fight in Thailand. Living together in a Vegas mansion, the fighters are put through extreme physical training but also the emotional challenges they deal with day to day. Within the seven week challenge, the girls experience everything from relationship break-ups, morale-busting injuries, roommate confrontations to wedding planning.
The series is based on the Fight Girls reality movie in which Master Toddy hand-picked three women to compete in Thailand. The fighters, facing more than they anticipated, returned to the U.S. bloodied, battered and defeated. Two of the experienced fighters from the movie impart their wisdom to this season's fighters each week as they prepare for their elimination fights.
Fight Girls gives an inside look into the rise of women who practice martial arts in the United States - with the numbers of frequent participants increasing 115% from 2002 to 2004 for women 18-24 years old.
