People think spiritual masters all have to be weak. Their are warrior priests too.

http://m.youtube.com/watch...

Eager to fight ,secret sociotiess created a network of Martial arts schools in Chinese Monesteries and villages.
While the Manchus feared the Shaolin Priests and their revolutionary activities,they refused to harm them. 10,000 Manchu troops were no match for 128 Warrior monks.

Wu-Tang martial arts is an ancient art with the mystical Chi-Kung(Internal power arts)

"Martial arts without underlying form is like a building with out foundations - it may look impressive, but it has no permanence or inner strength.Observe the twelve celestial forms, and master their different roles, and your wushu will be ten times stronger!

Chinese Zodiac correspond to the elements which have many uses in different Martial arts. For instance: Rat: Wood Shao Yang, Gallbladder

Ox: Wood Jue Yin, Liver

Tiger: Metal Tai Yin, Lung

Rabbit: Metal Yang Ming, Large Intestine

Dragon: Earth Yang Ming, Stomach

Snake: Earth Tai Yin, Spleen

Horse: Fire Shao Yin, Heart

Ram: Fire Tai Yang, Small Intestine

Monkey: Water Tai Yang, Bladder

Rooster: Water Shao Yin, Kidneys

Dog: Fire Jue Yin, Pericardium

Boar: Fire Shao Yang, Triple Heat Stance of the Harmonious Ram

There actually is a nature based on the five elements responding to the Yin of the five emotions: Anger (Wood, Liver), Joy (Fire, Heart), Distress/Worry (Earth, Spleen), Grief/Sadness (Metal, Lungs), and Fear (Water, Kidneys). There is also five spirits of the 5 Yin Organs/Elements; soul, spirit, logic, courage and will for wood, fire, earth, metal and water respectively. In the Chinese Zodiac, not only is there an animal for every month there's also on for every year, season, and day (sunday and monday being day of yin and yang). The elements (thus corresponding animal) cycles throughout the day every 2 hours, for instance; 11:00pm to 1:00am is the time of the rat (Wood, Gallbladder), etc. etc. in the same order as above every two hour

In time, animal kung fu stances will become widespread across the middle kingdom. At present, such techniques are still rare .

The Monkey Stance is a almost drunken-seeming capering martialarts form, replete with howling and shrieking noises, graceless tumbling and flurries of undisciplined attacks. Of course, in reality a great degree of control required to appear so uncontrolled!

The moon is waxing in scorpio,the fearless warrior.
Different parts of Akebulan/Africa/TaMare/MU developed their own unique ancient fighting styles.

ANGOLA

"N'golo originated in Angola where it was developed as a right of passage for the male members of its society. Patterned after the movements of Zebra's in combat, two young male members would dance against each other to earn the right of marriage. It's plight followed its way to Brazil where it was transformed by African slaves into what is now called Capoeira Angola. Capoeira Angola was a martial art that was disguised as dance. It's primary purpose was to resist and over throw slavery".

EGYPT:- Kemet Mariama:

"Kemet Mariama which means, the black one. Gods gift was practiced 2800 years before our blessed Christ. This form of martial arts which includes Spiritial meditation, empty hands, weapons as well as fortification, blossomed in Kemet which is now known as Egypt. Mariama is a form of ground play. Not to be confused with grappling. The energies of Mariama are based on the Snake, Monkey and Cat which are commonly seen in Kemet ( Egyptian ) Culture. The ground play aspects of Kemet which are most commonly seen in the art are based on the snake. There are several different energies of the Snake. Mariama does not focus on fighting or grabbing its preditor but focuses on sensitivity and controlling energy the same way you would see an anaconda subduing a panther."

- Kuta/Hikuta (Professional Kuta):- Naboot - Sebekkha :- Tahteeb:

"In upper Egypt (actually the highlands to the south), there is a centuries old martial art system using stick and swords, called tahteeb. In fact, it can be traced to the time of the Pharaoh, as drawings on the walls of the ancient tombs of kings from that era show figures practicing the art using kendo style postures. Nowadays, members of the Ikhwaan-al-Muslimeen (Muslim Brotherhood) practice it at their religious schools"

ERITREA:- Testa

ETHIOPIA:-Donga Stick Fighting:

"The donga, is a male-only, stick sport which takes place from November until February (in between growing seasons). Each competitor carves their own six foot long stick to be used as a weapon with the only protection coming in the form of body paint. The event involves the top men of each village competing one on one, each trying to knock down his opponent. The rules are few and far between the main one being that you may only maim - not kill - your opponent. If an accidental fatality occurs, the killer and his family are banished from the village and all of their property is taken away from them. So what's the point of the donga? Simple ... manhood is proved, quarrels are resolved and honor is defended. When all is said and done however, the real reason for the fights lies elsewhere... "The tournament winner is borne on a platform of fighting sticks to a group of young women, who decide which of them will offer herself in marriage to the champion".

- Dula Meketa - Re Efi Areh Ehsee

GAMBIA:- Borreh

"Grappling art of the Mandinga tribe, it consists of knees, head butts, kicks and holds to break the neck, leg, collar bone and arm"

- Maratabeen

NIJERIA:- Dambe - Gidigbo (Yoruba martial art)- Igba Magba:

' The Igbos believe that "A man is said to be a man only when he has efficiently and effectively handled trying situations" They also believe that a man should fight his aggressors be they human or spiritual, to the best of his ability. It is always a privilege for young men to have the courage to engage in a wrestling match. For one has the opportunity to distinguish themselves and to attain a statues in the community as a star, warrior or a distinguish wrestler. Throughout Igboland wrestling is an important sport. Wresting has been known to be used not just as a sport but for other purposes. At times, disputes are settled with this all-important sport. An extremely popular girl, who has had several approaches from suitors, may find it difficult to choose the one she will marry. What happens in this case, is that; a wrestling competition is arranged for all the suitors and whoever emerges victorious marries the girl. Inter-village wrestling competitions are not uncommon. Each village has its own wrestling ground, which is very soft and well looked after. The wrestlers are grouped according to their records of achievements. All the villagers are informed of any competitions, which usually are in the in the evenings. A ring is made and spectators sit around this ring. The chief, titled men, the boy providing the music and the wrestlers all sit inside the ring. Boys who have been specially trained provide a brand of music. The wrestlers squat and chat together. The competition is started by the two principal wrestlers from the two villages. Various techniques are employed and a wrestler can easily win the applause of the spectators with his adroit styles. Any competitor that is carried up and if his legs are no longer touching the ground is declared defeated. If it appears that no competitor is defeating the other, the wrestlers are said to be evenly matched. It's declared a draw and another set of wrestlers comes in. Meanwhile, the music provided by the boys' plays an important role on the occasion. It has been once described as heart stirring, capable of giving added strength to the weak. The total successes and failures of each team go to determine the result of the competition. The team that has the greatest number of' successes becomes the winner and the chief presents the prize, which can take any form".

As you can see from reading the above information,in some of us come from warrior bloodlines. For a man to have access to the finest nubian Goddess of royal lineage,he had to win a hand to hand contest with the best warriors. And you know she was bad to come royal stock.lol.

This is why some of our goddesses today are wired to like the warrior in the black man. Today if that energy is harnessed the wrong way you may see it in todays "thug" or "bad boy". But you don't have to be either of those to be a warrior or have heart. My father was neither and I seen him punk out many of those who where acting that way(I use the word "acting"). My mother (a capricorn)used to joke and say she had all the most handsomest,educated men chasing her back in thee day,but the only reason she married our ugly father was because he had heart. She was joking about the ugly part. My father was an aries to the core. Even at his old age now,if he sees me,he wants to challenge me in slap boxing.,or wrsestling.He too took up boxing as a youngster.

The history of Zulu stick fightng&martial sciences.

The recent history of stick fighting is traced to the legacy of the Zulu king Shaka. Shaka lived from 1787 to 1828, and during his reign, he established the Zulu Empire and became Southern Africa’s most legendary warrior-king.

Until recently, historians credited Shaka with the development of Zulu warfare,with its emphasis on stabbing spears and phalanxes, but recent research suggests that the weapons, strategies, and tactics accredited to him were established before his rise to power. The great warriors preceding Shaka, like so many historical figures and events, are hidden from documented history, and forgotten even in the oral tradition
Traditionally, Zulu stick fighters prepared for a fight using medicine (intelezi) prepared by a herbalist (inyanga). In contemporary times, the widespread use of intelezi has been inhibited by changes in the social and religious structure of Zulu communities (Zulu, 1996). This is probably due to European and missionary influences.
he Zulu people believed that a woman lingers in a marginal state of existence during menstruation; she does not completely surface in life or death, but abides in a state of transition (Clegg, Personal Communication, 1996). In intelezi relating to stick fighting, menstrual fluids are combined with a number of other medicinal substances, and then applied to the sticks. This allegedly renders the opponent’s defence impotent (Zulu, Interview, 1996). The use of menstrual blood on sticks is known among stick fighters at Nongoma.
To keep opponents from working counter-spells, the exact nature of the medicinal plants used for intelezi is secret.

Nonetheless, some generalisations are possible. For example, the ingredients generally consist of a number of herbs and plant extracts, and an inyanga can obtain ingredients for the medicine from as far afield as Zanzibar (Mzobe, Interview, 1996

AUSTRALIA:

- Koonomon Togip Baip :

"An Aboriginal martial art, almost lost to history, is being revived in Victoria. The fighting art, called "Koonomon togip baip" in the Wurundjeri language, includes moves that mimic those of Australian animals such as kangaroos, emus and wedge-tailed eagles. Chris Hume, a member of the Yorta Yorta tribe, said white settlement almost wiped out any memories of the indigenous Australian martial art. Martial arts, once thought to be the preserve of Asian countries, were common throughout the world, Mr Hume said. Mr Hume was alerted to the existence of an indigenous Australian martial art by Darrell Stosegan, a martial arts fanatic, who noticed Aboriginal dances seemed to include martial arts moves. But in Victoria it was more a wrestling style of fighting that included kangaroo, kite hawk and wedge-tailed eagle moves. Another move, common throughout Australia, was based on fishing where the fighter struck out with one arm (casting the line) and then followed up with a series of blows to the stomach (reeling the line in). Originally, the martial art would have been used to settle disputes between neighboring tribes that could not resolve their differences through talking."
