    Native American Martial Arts?

    I've seen fighting styles from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, but I've never seen any American Indian styles. I have no doubt they had them, but can anyone clue me in to what they were like? Do they still teach them? Much appreciated.

    I'm not sure which groups had single combat. But I think one of the forest tribes had some type of wrestling.

    I remember some kind of ad about native american tomahawk fighting in some old martial arts magazine. But I also remember an ad about Jailhouse rock fighting... and.... vikings...
    No doubt they had fighting arts, but I guess they either don't exist anymore or can only be found on indian reservations.

    My guess is Grappling or Wrestling, since grappling seems to be found in almost all culture.

    Others would be archery, stone throwing, tomohawk throwing, javelin throwing (very useful for hunting bison).

    Tomahawk throwing is only for the movies. There unbalanced and completely unaerodynamic. Tomahawks would have probably been used to only fight close range, although they were mainly used to cut wood.

    Here's a site that claims to be teaching it: http://www.ten-no-kishi.com/aifaa.htm

    It being legit or not, i have no idea, but it probably is a load of crap.

    ha just did a little research on the guy who runs the place, apparently he also runs an American New Age cult. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deer_Tribe_Metis

    "The only truly American martial arts system accredited by the International Society of Black Belts."
    Because all truely american indian arts end with -ryu.
    Nothing about that seems even slightly native american... what with the...gi and all.

    Grappling American Indian Martial Arts = t3h sexx lolz.

    "Sex seminars

    Reagan appeared on the HBO's program Real Sex in America in 1992, promoting his sex therapy "Chuluaqui Quodoushka " as a Cherokee ritual. The chief of the Cherokee Nation at the time, Wilma Mankiller, threatened to sue HBO for misrepresentation, and a resolution was passed by the Cherokee condemning Reagan and other "plastic shamans".[1] Reagan later claimed that Quodoushka is a blend of many ancient sexual traditions to avoid a lawsuit. In fact most of his practices are a clear imitation of the Kama Sutra.

    A Hard-Core Porn movie called Quodoushka, Native American Love Techniques (or Quodoushka) came out in 1991 (the year before Harley promoted "his" sex therapy), distributed by Vivid Video and starring such hard-core porn actresses as Ashley Nicole, Heather Hart, Hyapatia Lee, and Madison."
