My previous post, An unlikely source, got me to thinking and researching about African and African Diaspora traditions that could serve as fighting styles for action and martial arts movies.
Here are some articles dealing with African/African Diaspora Martial Arts, Combat Games, or sports. Many are interesting, especially if you are unfamiliar with these traditions. Read, share, and enjoy.
