Gatka

India
Gatka — is a Punjabi martial art. Gatka originated from an ancient Indian battlefield science - shastar vidya. The bout can be held against several opponents at the same time, so it requires using arms with both hands. It uses physical training and special meditations. Pantra, a warrior dance (from pa-tantra, or ideal tantra — interaction with the opponent) is at the heart of Gatka. In addition, the competitors may use up to 40 types of weapons (tabar, an axe; khand, a double-edge sword, chakram, a circular edged weapon, an iron bracelet (kara, which is also a symbol of faith), marhati, a training weapon, kirpan, a dagger, etc.)
