    Hopefully there be more interests in Indian martail arts. Theres a few Indian Martial art schools on the U.K. I hear. But nothing in North America as of yet. I have seen Indian martail arts some of it looks like wushu mixed in with yoga. Indian wrestling is nice. Looks like North American freestyle wrestling.

    my best friend is indian; years ago he told me about these wrestlers in his family's village in gujarat who would train using these telephone pole things - i guess the sthambhasrama mentioned in the article. they would climb up and down the pole by reverse-bear-hugging it, flipping their legs up and wrapping 'em around it, flipping back up into the bear-hug thing, etc. sounds... challenging. but i guess if you're training to get punched in the face with a spiked ivory knuckleduster you're probably up for a challenge.

    IIRC, The BBC did a story about 6 months ago, on a guy from India who ran a native martial art association. He seemed to have a lot of students. There was also some documentary on an Australian Channel on Kalaripayat (SP?) another native Indian Martial Art. The flexible sword/whip thing is quite cool to look at.

    It would be too bad if these cultural legacies disappear.

    Anyway, here's an article on Gama, a really tough Indian/Pakistani wrestler.
