Imagine isolating ten models in a beautiful Caribbean resort, training them intensively in Kung-fu for one month by two of the finest martial arts masters in the world, then having them test these new skills by sparring against one another for a cash prize.

Welcome to Combat-Model-small-INSERT-80.

Combat Model is a 13×30 reality-based television series that will combine entertainment sleekness with character-building and emancipation through hard work to create an entertainment phenomenon unlike anything ever seen.

Combat Model will take ten models from ethnically diverse backgrounds and all walks of life. They will be separated into two teams, then trained for one month in Kung-Fu by two Kung-fu masters and four assistant trainers.

They will have no contact with the outside world. No cell phones, no internet, no technology.

There will be no make-up and hair. You will see the models as they are, with no artificial enhancements. When they sweat, it will be real.

Every episode will follow one model’s evolution, for Day 1 to Day 30, culminating in a series of round-robin sparring matches as she takes on every member of the opposite team. After the Round Robin, the four girls with the most points will proceed to the semi-finals. Then, the last two contenders will square off for the cash prize.

Combat Model asks of its combatants (and by extension, viewers) two very important questions:

What are you made of?

What can you make yourself into?

The show will take us on a life-changing journey, with a crucial emotional core that will resonate with anyone who has ever been intrigued by the road not taken and the empowerment only possible through a martial path.
