Nihungs, Surely They Would Have Had A System Of Unarmed Combat!


Recommended Posts

I am sure the Nihungs would have had a system of unarmed combat, after all they were warriors and what if someone sneaked up on them or they were wihout shastar or had no time to use a kirpan. And I am sure someone somewhere will know what is it and how effective it is. Please share your thoughts on this topic and lets not argue esepcially since some people start slagging of or approving of Niddar Singh.

I personally don't believe he is the only one with the knowldedge of Shastar Vidya. There are probably others. What about Damdami Taksal?

Ive not heard anyone from Damdami Taksal, state that they teaching Shastar Vidya, as for other people teaching it, yea maybe but none i know of are within the Uk, india is another matter.

Taksal is a university ..not a martial arts training centre..when they split with the nihang singhs to protect the art of santhiya they lost much of their battlefield / combat knowledge

All i have to say is Niddar Singh is awesome, but his views are miles away from True Sikhi, like learning from a Monk, you go there for the War Art not the Philosophy

Bhai Gurdas ji Vaars tells us:

If someone enters a room full of soot his face is sure to be blackened.

In terms of martial arts he knows his stuff.... footwork and movement

I think back in the day if in unarmed combat Singhs would have been going straight for the kill as well.

"Va Khalsa, Va Fateh"

Nidar Singh seems to have his own way of Saying Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, waheguru Ji ki Fateh lol

Also for someone who does so much Martial arts he has a large tidh

Exactly what I thought when I saw the vid yesterday.

To beginwith Nihungs and Damdami taksal were one and same.But later damdami taksal separated and was a sikh seminary.

Niddar is certainly not only Nihung who knows about martial art.There must be more sikhs from Nihung jathebandis in India

who knows about this art far better than Niddar. There are many shashtars named in shashtar nam mala in Dasam Granth sahib

and only those puratan Nihungs know the meanings of their names.

Baba Ram Singh, former Jathedar of Akali Phoola Singh Burj under Budha Dal Jathedar Akali Baba Sahib Singh discusses Shastarvidiya with Nidar Singh Nihang. Audio recorded in September 1998.
