In this detailed explanation of the practical fighting program, teaching basic hand-to-hand fighting skills to soldiers, host Antonio Graceffo goes back into the war zone of Burma with the Shan State Army, a rebel group protecting the Shan people from genocide committed by the Burmese government.
Practical fighting is a basic program of 18 strikes, beginning with the head, and working its way down, using each part of the body as a weapon. The system is very basic and easy for people to learn, even if they have no martial arts background at all.
Using martial arts, Antonio helps to educate the world about the plight of the Shan people of Burma. A lot of fight fans don’t get very involved with international politics. Hopefully featuring the Kung Fu of the Shan people will help call attention to the genocide in Burma.
