Is anybody out there interested in Afrakan/Afrakan Centered Martial Arts, and accompanying Warrior Culture and related Philosophy? If so, can I hear from you? I am currently studying/researching/practicing an Afrakan Centered martial art called "Ahuti Kefa". I have been looking at Kupigana Ngumi, but have no one where I live who teaches or practices (as far as I have been able to find out).

Hey Afrodaze, I'm curious about what the art you're studying and have a few questions if you don't mind...

Do yall spar ?

Is your sparring standup only or do yall do groundwork and takedowns also?

Are you studying in the US or abroad?

Are there any video's of yall's sparring sessions or workouts or anything I can have a look at?

Do yall enter tournaments ?


Thanks in advance for any information ....

Did the Africans ever call their practices Martial Arts, or could that be a bastardization from a Eurasian perspective of African practices?

Unfortuanately, we don't have any videos, right now. As for sparring..."whatever works" is our philosophy. We do not claim that Ahuti Kefa is a "traditional" Afrakan combat art. It is what we call "neo-traditional" taking from the old and creating the new, so that it is ever growing and fresh. If and when we come out with any videos, I will try to keep you aware of such.

Since the term "martial art" is derived from the european language, I doubt if Afrakans used the term themselves. We use it because we are here in Ameraka, and this is the language we were assimilated with. From our understanding, Ahuti Kefa translates into "Fist of One Who Strikes with the Power of the Neters".
