What Can Be Done To Inspire Sikhs To Be More Martial


Recommended Posts

sikhi requires Sikhs to learn combat and to have martial characteristics

but today Sikh youth are becoming less and less martial

their are alot of pathetic losers who think their martial but just losers aka the Punjabi gangster wannabe's who think their black from compton who get drunk an think their hard if its 10 on 1 but run away if the odds are even or against them

what can be done to turn this around

how about asking local gurdwaras to partner up with professional mma gyms and boxing gyms to allow Sikh youth from once who don't attend gurdwara an cut their hair to Sikhs who do attend and are amritdhari to attend classes

Before we can become martial again(which we must) we must realize that we have to become Spiritual again. Sant Siphai first is Sant and every true Sant is a Siphai(all of them, Bachittar Singh looked like a weak guy, but still beat an elephant). If you don't believe in the Bachittar Singh story: Guru Gobind Singh Ji first asked a really bulk and muscular guy to take on the elephant and he said no; and later died by a snakebite. Bachittar Singh was a Sewadar and he decided that this was a mission to do Sewa. Another story is the Musket and Guru Gobind Sibgh Ji. http://www.sikhnet.com/stories/audio/guru-gobind-singh-and-new-musket

In the UK, very few, if any Gurdwaras in my experience are willing to make such provisions, as they firstly deem it unnecessary and secondly wouldn't want to fund it.

I don't know any Gurdwara in the UK, that is prepared to pay a proper Gurmat Sangeet teacher to hold a weekly class, never mind paying someone to teach self-defence/martial arts.

The only way you will see this happening is by making it happen, and that is by either getting the sangat on your side, or even better joiing the committee and making it happen.

But it's something that should happen. Along with kabaddi and wrestling. Long-term horse-riding and archery.

Why rely on committees who have other agendas ...there are many masters of different arts out there why not create a knowledge net for sikhs to plug into so that we can learn as much as possible from all the martial arts places..I wouldn't mind paying for outside classes if I knew they were quality. Plus if we hire spaces for our akaras no committee politics will interfere with our job of learning. It is obvious GOI wants SIkhi warrior spirit to deflate and die that's why their agents here infiltrate and mess with our sangat's learning and actioning these skills even teaching dasam bani arth.

We teach an intelligent fighting system based on traditional battlefield and street fighting principles.
Various weaponry is taught, including modern and traditional blades (sword and knife), axe, spear/staff.
Hand to hand fighting using internal striking methods, mastery of body mechanics and strategy is taught.

Alongside kara and puratan shastar are taught, as well as street psychology and tactics’.

All variations of weaponry and hand to hand scenario is based on one fundamental set of fighting principles, movement and energy.

Classes are only for those who are prepared to treat them as a high priority in their life. They are not for hobbyists or those wanting to tick a cultural or Sikh tick box.
The Yudh Vidhya is taught to those who wish to become ‘Abhiyaasi’ of it.

Classes are taught in a strictly respectful and family atmosphere. No rude or inappropriate behaviour is tolerated. All are brother and sisters.

Girls are taught with boys, but practice and train separately.

We teach in West London, East London, London Bridge and Coventry.

We are not affiliated with any personalities or any jathaa. All classes start and end with ardaas to Akaal.

If you are SERIOUS about learning, send an email to elusivefighting@gmail.com.

State your prior MA experience and speak a little bit about yourself. Tell us why you would like to learn.

Dhanvaad.

Sri Akaal Ji Sahae

    • We need to squarely face that given our current numbers, we'll have to deal with 'economies of scale' so we'll be unlikely to be able to sell at prices comparable to similar mass produced mainstream items that have a large consumer base. I think the above sells at around £20 for instance. I'd say we have enough exemplar career types right now, we need to connect kids to their heritage more than this in whichever way we can.  You point about relatability depends on where the kids are growing up and the character of Sikhs around them.  I don't know about the current generation, but in the recent past there were strong, brave Sikhs who confronted things like race attacks etc., so it shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Plus I noticed that a lot of Sikhs seem overtly 'nerdy' in the US - outright braces, cheesy gormless grins and bifocals - parents should take take to sharpen them out of this at a young age if they can. Was talking to someone who was thinking of trying produce some kids books, andthe point about have puerile, non-based sakhis came out, the conclusion was that such works need to incorporate a slight gritty dark edge to avoid the kids turning into unrealistic lulloos when older.  Been thinking about that graphic novel I posted about previously, it's such a shame that the diaspora panth (who would be the main consumers) couldn't forkout the £9000 being asked for. That's like £3000 each from the UK, US and Canada - where we all know we have plenty of loaded apnay. If anyone reading is one of these loaded apnay - please support and fund these things and maybe have one less flash motor or slightly less designer clothes. 
    • They are identify culturally Hindu but non-believers in God. Usually liberal brahmins psychos in India journalists, Gandhi supporters.  noticed too with Punjabi left liberal journalists too anti Sikh but religion in Panjabi
    • Those toys of regular jobs aren't profitable from a purely business perspective. When have western toys been relatable to bache?
    • Yeah, typical of self-hating Sikhs to kvetch and squirm about our martial heritage at a time when we proudly stood on our own.  Instead, let's glorify being nameless cogs in the Western apparatus that looks at us sideways while glorifying their preferred pet minorities. Nothing wrong with worldly jobs at all, but it's hardly something to get little kids inspired about their history.
    • Very strange. At that age why would he go after his wife with such force? Unless she'd made his life unbearable behind closed doors for their entire life together, and he just snapped?
