Obscure Martial Arts of Interest
After some research, I've discovered some martial arts that are interesting to me, and would love some further insight if anyone has some.
Bare knuckle boxing from northern India.
Tamil empty-handed art similar, but older, than karate.
Burmese folk wrestling art that seems to be the bridge between Indian and Chinese martial arts.
Similar to judo but developed independently in Europe during the 15th century.
Norwegian martial art similar to taijiquan supposedly developed in the 6th century.
Egyptian Stick Fighting
Supposedly can trace its roots back to the ancient Egyptians.
From Sudan. Blends stick fighting and wrestling. Neither pinning or submissions are allowed.
Turkish oil wrestling. Yes, that's right. Oil wrestling.
Mani Stick Fighting
Native to Cuba, but derived from Africa. Allegedly, Spanish slave owners would watch their slaves beat each other to death doing it.
If any of my descriptions are inaccurate, please let me know. Would love to separate the fact from fiction.
