July 13 is the day the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman verdict was announced. I consider the not guilty verdict a WAKE UP call to all black people worldwide. It’s seems to me a message was being sent. Was anyone listening?? I hope so. We need to learn how ro protect ourselves and our families. We need to have weapons and learn some type of self defense. We need to be prepared for any type of assault on us. We do NOT want to be siting ducks. Which is what a lot of us are at the moment. Learning how to defend ourselves is nothing new. We have been doing it for thousands of years. Here is a great video by Ashra Kwesi. This video is from a tour out in Kemet(Egypt). He talks about how the martial arts have been in Africa a very long time.
Everybody believes today that Martial Arts come mainly from China and Japan. However that is not true, the origin of all self-defense systems comes from Kemet now called Egypt around 50,000 years ago.
The Kemetans(Egyptians) used many forms of what today called martial arts, which consist of three levels, spiritual, mental, and physical.
The definition of “Martial” means-Roman god of war.
The Kemetians (Egyptian’s) call this system Montu, which is an African defense system.This system was not made for “War” purposes because we had no enemies, it was made because we were putting our power away, and allowing the negative with an intelligence to rule. In putting our power away we started using the hands, which before 50,000 years ago we were not(more on this subject at a later date).
Montu Art form encompassed all forms and levels of self-defense from, the spiritual, mental, down to the physical such as using the fist, chops, flips, throws, takedowns, grappling, ground fighting, joint locks, choke holds, sticks, weapons.
Many masters studied in the Kemetian (Egyptian) universities and temples. These Masters taught their sons and those sons taught their sons. The lineage came all the way down to Masters such as Master Tomo, from what is now called Northern Africa, Bodhi Dharma from what is now called India travelled thru many lands sharing the spiritual, mental, and physical sciences of Montu (martial arts) art form.
The Nuba’s who live in the highlands of the Sudan practice the Montu art form.
Now there are martial arts in many other countries from this lineage. Thus there is a martial art from Vietnam: Viet-Vo-Dao, we also have an Art even less known to us, the Vajra-Mukti just India that existed 1500 years BC-AD.
In Chinathe Shaolin Monks constructed there first monastery. This monastery is built on the summit of Mount Chao-Che in the province of Ho-Nan.Il is ideally located overlooking them because the main road that runs through China. It is also close to many water sources.
To protect against the wind, very violent at the summit, the monks decide to plant trees (which was revolutionary for its time). The temple is known as: the young forest, or Chao-Lin in Chinese.
Later, the monks erected a wall of 3 km in circumference to protect themselves from any attack.
Always to protect themselves, the monks will plant a forest of bamboo they regularly sharpen razor, hoping that their attackers could not cross them.
But the patriarch was not convinced of the effectiveness of this passive protection, so he decided to hire two experts in unarmed combat they taught their art to his monks. Thus, in case of attack, the monks could repel the aggressors out of the monastery.
In Japan the Imperial Japanese government encouraged immigrants to develop the country. Indeed, immigrants made weaving, pottery, blacksmithing … Along with production technology and the performing arts, all were booming.
Thus Kugutsu, specialized in mobile entertainment, immigrated to Japan. They excelled at archery, horse riding, hunting, handling the knife. They were also capable, they say, in transforming the Silver Sand (magician) and make puppets live (illusionist).
The Kugutsu representations are called Sangakus. These shows, very complete, include a number of dancing, music, magic, but also said to be energy exercises.
To perform these exercises, the nomads had to be very strong physically and mentally to control their bodies. They therefore developed a specific training to enable them to achieve their numbers of great feats. It is from these exercises that will train warriors in Martial Arts.
The US government has unbound the legal regulations against using propaganda against foreign audiences and American citizens. The intention is to sway public opinion by using television, radio, newspapers, and social media targeting the American and foreign people in controlled psy-ops.
The newest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has an amendment added that negates the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (SMA) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987.
These laws made propaganda used to influence foreigners and US citizens illegal. Without these laws, disinformation could run rampant throughout our information junkets.

This is a great lecture with Ron Finley. This brother really breaks down the importance of growing your own food. He says must of us in this country live in a “food desert”. It’s really hard to disagree with him. I can’t stress this point enough. Must of us rely on our local grocery stores to supply us with food. We have all become too domesticated. We have to change this attitude if we want to survive. What if all the grocery stores closed?? How would you feed your children? Where would you water? These are the questions you need to ask yourself. You need to grow your own garden, if you haven’t started already. Check out the video and tell me what you think. I found it very educational.
We know that we need black men to stand up and defend their families at all cost. Brothers will have to be prepared mentally and physically when the time comes. We need our sistas to be there to protect and nurture the babies. The children are the future. Without them we have NO future. But I also know there are many black women that are single and struggling to make it day to day. But the time may(and will) come when they will have to get involved in the fight for our survival. The responsibility doesn’t fall all on black women. I’m not saying they have to be the leaders in this quest for our survival. But they do play a huge part in it. We have to get our minds right for what’s sure to come. And we’ll need the help of our female warriors to get the job done. Our collective survival is at stake. The question is–will we be ready?
Do you want to know the truth behind gun control? This film is very informative.
The narrator of this video is Ahati Kilindi Iyi. He explains different Martial art techniques. As well as the history of African martial arts. I learned quite a lot from this video. I hope you enjoy it.
This is a father son sparring with each other. This is good to see. All of our people should be teaching our children this. It’s important that we all learn some type of self defense technique. Karate,Kung Fu, etc. Any type of hand to hand combat is important. You never know when you’ll need it.
