    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Lutta Corsa

    This is a really suspect MA. Unfortianitlly I don't read french but this sounds like It might be Corsican nationalist bullshido. There is a website in french:

    http://ftev.ifrance.com/

    And A wikipedia entry

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lutta_corsa

    From what little french I know I think the founders of Lutta Corsa are claiming a Roman/greek orgin but then again I don't speak French.

    Maybe their is some one out there who in bullshido who can read French.

    I suspect people are going to want to know your beef with the art.... what is fraudelant about it. They probably will be a lot more sarcstic and mean spirited about this inquiry.... So ask yourself a question or two. First, there are arts that are reconstructions.

    Ironickly enough Pankreton (spelling?) is an art that was done as a reconstruction by Jim Arvantis with quite a bit of success. To my knowledge JIm Arvantis never claimed otherwise and is well respected based on his reconstruction/interpretation of the ancient Hellinic Greek Arts.

    Reconstructions are not fraudelent when the creator is honest about the arts origins.

    So first question is: is this art a reconstruction?

    Start there..... As I suspect that this might be your beef with the art. If it is, ask the founders (email) if they are reconstructing an art or claiming a connection to the art otherwise.

    I have no beef. I just want the truth. Also If it is a reconstruction I will admit I'm wrong and apologize . The that makes me angry is when people invent false histories for their own personal agendas ( It distorts the real legitimate history). I will do email him. I'm new at this stuff.

    update: I emailed him but my email has been acting screwy lately so I will email him from a different email acount. I'll tell you his response. I hope I'm wrong and that
    this thread is a mistake.

    Probably unintentionally, but I think you are out of line here by posting in this forum first instead of posting the question about what is going on. I used babelfish ( a machine translator) and it might be an attempt to recreate/preserve a traditional "fight". It may be wrestling or it may be a dance like fight that was a cultural thing. I could not tell for sure. Either way, be careful about making accusations. There have been top notch investigations done here and I don't want to see this forum lose credibility.

    haha easy... no need to fall on your sword!

    One problem is definitely the language thing. This adds an element to it. I will ask my Cajun wife (she speaks/reads French) to have a look at the website and see what the guy is saying.



    EDIT:

    Ok that was quick. It is a reconstruction. In the primary mission statement he says that the mission is to reconstruct the art.


    So the guy is on the level AM... I can't speak for everybody but don't be so hard on yourself. And you have just learned that it is a legitimate enterprise under some circumstances to reconstruct an older art.

    Thank you. I won't be to quick to point the finger next time. I was wrong.
