    Native American martial arts?

    Does anyone have any reliable sources as to if Native Americans had any indigenous fighting styles?

    Also, has anyone trained in "ABIR?"

    PS-Ashida kim is real AND being sued? haha

    The only authoritative source I know of for Native American Martial Arts is a guy named Owl Goingback who is a native american historian who has compiled a lot of info on their martial arts. I have never had the privilege of seeing any of his work so though, so I don't know anything about its content or accuracy. Only that he supposedly has done it.

    Some of the discussion in that thread is retarded beyond description, but overall, there are some good posts, like the one quoted below:

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Watch brotherhood of the Wolf and you will find that native americans kick hella ass, with a style that kinda looks like Savate.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."
