Afrikan Combat Arts: The Oldest in the World

Welcome to our Capoeira lesson for today! 
Beni Hasan Wrestler Mural
Did you know that the image above is that of the oldest combat arts in human history? If the practitioners don't look like Bruce Lee to you, it's because they're not Asian. If they look Afrikan to you, it's because they are. Don't mind the so-called white "historians" and their lackeys: 
white
Coincidentally, note Cheikh Anta Diop and Theophile Obenga who turned the whole world of such rabid racist terrorist white "historians" upside down with the revelation that with a determinative of "town", the word Kmt 'Egypt' (iconograph is a piece of burnt wood) itself translates to Land of the Blacks.

When said rabid racist terrorist white "historians" countered with the preposterous assertion that it meant Black Soil, Diop and Obenga showed them in writing Kmt with a determinative of human beings/plural demonstrating that the people of Kmt themselves referred to themselves as Black people using the irrefutable research of their own white scholars and the writings of the people of Kmt themselves:

Case closed. 
But that is tangential to our discussion here which is that Afrikan people, Black people (synonyms), your very own Afrikan Ancestors practiced the first combat arts known to humanity on the face of the planet earth. Congratulations!
So below, find these line drawings which were made for Hugh Leonard's (1897) wrestling manual "A Handbook of Wrestling." The manual itself is available online for free at: http://www.archive.org/details/AHand-bookOfWrestling

According to Petrie (2013), these tomb scenes date back to 3396 BCE late in the reign of Senusert I with the burial recorded as occurring in his 43rd year of rule. This is before the founding of Kmt (Ancient Egypt) as the two lands Upper Kmt and Lower Kmt were united later by this Afrikan named Narmer:

Coincidentally, Narmer was no slouch when it came to combat arts himself as the Narmer Palette clearly shows:

Also you may notice how we intentionally shy away from using the term "martial arts" not because the concept itself doesn't fit, but rather due to disdain for the identification of the Roman "god" Mars from which the term "martial" is derived. As an Afrikan proverb states: "It is a silly daughter who tries to teach her mother how to bear children." By the same token, it would be silly to define an older, more ancient phenomenon based on that which came later and unabashedly plagiarized from the original. This would be the equivalent of using such oxymoronic terms as Egyptian Kung-Fu, Afrikan Judo, Black Karate, Nubian Jiu-Jitsu, Kemetic Yoga, kwk.
Know yourself, get some pride in yourself based on the facts and quit pretending to be europeans, asians, eurasians, hebrews, greeks, british, americans, kwk. Learn your history and quit basing your reality on fantasy, fiction, fairy tales, movies, novels, myths, legends, bibles, korans, talmuds, science-fiction and other eurasian mixtures of plagiarism combined with outright lies!
So, now that you know combat arts all began with you, now you're left to decide whether or not it continues with you.
