    Nabard The Persian art of combat

    I was asked by a friend to look into schools in his area as he wants to start his kid in martial arts. When looking for schools I came across This Master Safakhoo and the Persian art of combat called Nabard. I tried doing more searches on it in Bullshido but found nothing. Just wondering if anyone else has heard of this? If there is a thread can you please point me in the right direction thanks.

    Here is the link to the website

    That site is pure gold. From the quotes:

    When tradition meets innovation; History is made."-Master Safakhoo

    Nabard is the strategy by which we survive the modern day war on the intellectual battlefield.
    -Master Safakhoo


    It goes on and on. If your friend wants his kid to be taught by someone narcissistic enough to think every emanation from his ass is a quote, then this is the place.

    Poorly performed pseudo-Chinese poo... If it's so Persian, why are they wearing Chinese-looking uniforms and sashes, why are they using Chinese weapons, and why are they doing Chinese techniques?

    Guess it ain't so "Persian" after all...

    Why do people do this? Don't they realize damn near everyone has access to th3 int3rw3bz these days?

    Thats quite obviously bad kung-fu rebranded as "ancient persian". A relatively stupid move, considering how many persians live in diaspora, and how hard they cling to their traditions. Any persian will almost instantly call bullshit on this one.

    Persian martial arts are heavily influenced by India. So much they even resemble each other in the names.

    The traditional system, often called Varzesh-e Pahlavani, which is supposed to translate to "Sport of the Heroes" is a mixture of strongmen exercises and "Koshti" wrestling. Persians totally dig wrestling anyhow.

    Kosthi looks like this:

    YouTube- koshti iran قهرمان ایران امید امیری.dat

    or this (Kosthi wrestler at international tournaments):

    YouTube- iran wrestling

    finally this is Pahlavani:

    YouTube- Varzeshe Pahlevani

    The only influence china has on Persia/Iran lies in delivering surface-to-air missile systems and toasters to the country.
