    Cold Steels CEO Lyn Thompson invited Nidar Singh to demonstrate and teach the Sikh Warrior Arts - Sanatan Shastarvidiya. The video of what they thought of the experience begins when the channel opens.

    This month's Black Belt Magazine has an article on Indian martial arts and Gatka.

    Mentions "The Art of Katka" by Akali. Far as I know, I'm the only one who's republished it and the PDF is free download. :)

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    Hi Frank

    Nidar Singh will be conducting regular Seminars in Canada Ottowa, and will be returning next month I believe.

    If your interested in attending, I will send you the details when they are finalised.

    Thank you

    Great video, never heard of this martial art before, and very interested in the battlefield techniques.

    I feel like I would be doing a disservice to not mention this.

    First, I think these videos are great. Awesome.
    That said, please don't shoot the messenger.

    If you go to youtube and search "nihang nidar singh", the very first video that pops up is a video proclaiming Nihang Nidar Singh's fakeness as a Nihang. None of it has anything to do with martial arts. Apparently, his cultural teachings are counter to what the Sikh teach. For that reason, he was excommunicated from them.

    Not saying his martial arts are fake or ineffective or aren't what they ought to be in any way. I only feel that, for the sake of completeness, anyone who chooses to research Shastarvidya or the Sikh further should know that he's officially removed from the teachings he teaches.

    I'm subscribing to that channel though.

    Fraud busting is against the rules here on MT, this appears to be a private argument between people we don't know about a subject we know nothing of, to post up as 'truth' is extremely unfair. It's not a case of 'shooting the messenger' it's more that the messenger should have read the rules here.

    Ah. Sorry.

    I think I'm going to give them a re read in case I missed anything else.

    The Mods get a bit miffed if they think people are fraud busting, too much like certain other sites methinks :D

    For the record, I was not, am not suggesting this person is a fraud. I only thought it relevant information to know. Regardless, I see the mistake. Again, sorry everyone.

    It seems to be a private argument amongst themselves, lets just hope that they keep weapons out of it :eek:
