    I suspect bullshit, I don't see why the Raj would have banned Sikh martial arts when they amongst others were designated 'martial races' and prized for the fighting abilities as recruits into the Army. Doesn't make sense to make your martial race less martial and less deadly.

    British Sikhs revive deadly art banned by the Raj
    The warrior art of Shastar Vidya (weapon science) once practiced by Sikhs in the Punjab, was banned by the ruling British, who were intimidated by the success, bravery and sheer aggression of the martial art. The blue turbans were forbidden and only a ceremonial form of the art was allowed in the Raj. The closely guarded secrets of the true form went underground.

    Lebell has some good stories about the MA atmosphere in India. Has someone tagged him yet? He might have some good insight.

    You know, you can authenticate pretty much any art by screaming Dan Inosanto's name at people who are asking questions.

    I don't see any reason why the Raj would have banned Sikhs from practising martial arts, because they were a designated 'martial race'.

    This means they were drafted into the British army and were some of the most trusted and most loyal soldiers. We gave them guns and cannons for gods sake, why would we be worried about them doing a bit of playing about with swords and spears and stabby shoes when in the same time period we were actively arming them with the latest European weaponry.

    Britain gained control of the Sikh territories in 1849, 8 years later when the Indian Mutiny erupted in 1857 and we nearly lost the whole of India. The Sikhs stayed loyal to the British and helped us recapture Delhi and other crucial sites.

    It makes no sense for the Raj to have banned a Sikh martial art.

    Because:
    1: We gave them shitloads of high tech weaponry.
    2. They were intensely loyal.

    I also haven't seen any reference to a specific act, proclamation etc... about it.

    Searching in google scholar for this martial art renders no results.
