9780895090874: Gatka: Dance of the Sword - Instruction Manual of Sword and Staff Fighting Techniques

Learn the ancient martial art of traditional Sikh sword fighting through this easy-to-follow guide with 21 step-by-step lessons and action photos. GATKA was developed at the primary source of defense by the Sikhs out of necessity. Since they were a society of farmers, with no standing army to protect them, they needed some form of defense which would compensate for their inferior numbers and lack of traditional military strategy. The book contains various chapters including: A brief historical background, Introduction, Gatka uniform, Simple Panthra, Stick panthra, Gatka Rhythm. Also includes information on diet and Sikh salutations from the Dasam Granth in combat. The death of a warrior includes the battle history of Baba Deep Singh. Extensive number of pictures and photographs by Subagh Kaur Khalsa are included to show the beginner how to use this art.
