Documentary currently in post-production.  Trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAz2jUOmGlc

Judging by the trailer, it appears this documentary examines the dichotomy between Christianity as a peaceful religion and the violent/competitive world of combat sports.  The deeper message explored seems to be whether today's Christian men have lost their masculinity.  I am interested in it, although I don't know if there will be an Orthodox voice represented.  Does seem to be a Catholic priest, though.

Thoughts?

From what I have seen, there is a masculine, fight-y branch of Christianity.  It is called "the Serbian Orthodox Church".

Yeah, though I can't imagine any Orthodox clergyman maintaining a build like the guy sin Fight Church.  Just too much fasting (or feasting).
