After the boom of the 90’s, which gradually receded, on everyone’s lips, the term «martial arts». It is believed that this phenomenon has come to us from Japan and China, but for those who can read the ancient writings of history, this fact is not so obvious. The origins of the ancient martial sacraments can be traced back in the «Mahabharata» which, according to current research, was composed at the time of the Aryans and among the Aryans, who came to the East in the middle of the II millennium BC From the book it is obvious that the Aryans possessed martial arts, in particular extraordinarily developed techniques of unarmed combat, bringing them off the shelf from its Eastern European ancestral home — Aratta.
In the territory of modern Ukraine Aryan civilization existed ploughmen, the legacy of which have absorbed all the civilized nations of our time. Ancient legends, tales of different nations show that the sacred center of this civilization was the island of the sun, modern Khortytsya.
Here in the Northern Black Sea origins of military culture can be traced to the VII century BC and this date is by far the oldest in the world. In the area of the Dnieper rapids are cemeteries where people are buried two physical types — local hunters and representatives of pastoralists tillers. Among the latter are very ancient graves of soldiers with guns battle, broken skulls, arrowheads in the bones, killed in the battle to end …
There are cemeteries that are over 8000 years old! This date is confirmed by the interpretation of Stone Grave stone tablets, it is far from this place, and archaeological finds of the Danube-Dnieper region. Such disposal indicates that at the time when the «enlightened» Europe still remained in the pristine wilderness, the ancient Slavs already existed social hierarchy — professional soldiers, priests, the lower classes. It is through such a fabulous antiquity comes top of the highest Zaporizhzhya Cossacks — the guardians of tradition and the teachers who were the mysterious Kharakternyky.
To this day, scientists are struggling with the deciphering of who are these Kharakternyky? The legends about this napuscheno much fog, but they say that it was a mysterious warrior-mages, who appeared out of the ground, they were immortal and extremely powerful. Since ancient times, they came to Khortytsya and taught men the art of war, creating a special caste of great warriors, but giving knowledge not only soldiers, but also simple husbandmen. They worshiped as gods. Turkish legends suggest that the Cossacks, ancient knowledge used by the world’s first submarine, which noiselessly swam to the Turkish galleys and cities, causing an unexpected, but a sure hit. Were de magic the Cossacks felt, that they could spread the water and walk as if on dry land. As legends say that could hide and characterniki breathe underwater for a long time to go without food and water, without losing strength. Some of them never grew older and were invincible in battle … But Kharakternyky not only personified the soldier, it was the harmonious development of personality is required to be a follower of tradition harakternitskih was the ability to play at least one musical instrument, the worship of the ancient elements, understanding the language of animals, especially relation to the knowledge and heritage of their ancestors. And it’s very recent knowledge, those that retained old, passing from mouth to mouth. It is known that at least 500 years old warrior-mage did not visit the sacred island, however, leaving the students.
For obvious reasons, this kind of dedicated will not be available on its own, but it is known that some of the mysterious caste survive today, having survived and Soviet power, wars and raids Tatar, and the defeat and disgrace of Zaporizhzhya Sich Slavic gods. One of the children immediately went to Canada where it belongs to so ancient caste ceased to be a secret. The motive was one — «I do not dare to talk about it with outsiders people» and all. I had to look up information in other places, as it turned out — it is. Often, in encrypted form, but as they say, «murder will out.»
In «The Tale of Bygone Years» tells about the young man who won a strong Pecheneg warrior, and got it done in history as Nikita Kozhemyaka.
Since ancient times there was a custom in our land battle, in which, in order to avoid unnecessary bloodshed, exhibited princes, one soldier to determine the «truth»: «That’s Pecheneg prince went to the river, called Vladimir and said to him:» With your husband and I am his, even once, if your husband give up my land, three years will not fight, but if I give up your land — will fight three years. » Prince started quickly search among his soldiers poedinschika, but says he one senior VFB: «Prince! I have a younger son at home alone, I went with four of the young lady left. Since childhood, he was not no one fought. Once cursed him when he squeezed the skin, so he was so angry that all the skin of his arms ripped bull. » Hearing this, the prince was delighted about, and sent for his son’s guard. Led, and that and said: «Prince! I do not know if I can win the Pechenegs. First, try me, do not you have big strong bull? «Found a suitable bull, teased his hot iron and released. Bull ran at the people, and the guy grabbed it on the run for his side and pulled his hand a large piece of meat with the skin. And the prince said this glyadyuchi: «Can the Pechenegs fight.» Pechenegs morning came and put his fighter, he was very big and fierce face. When he saw the boy, Prince Vladimir, who was both a growth and a normal body, Pechenegs laughed. The battle began, grappled enemies and become heavily compress each other, and … boy strangled to death by the Pechenegs and hit it on the ground. Cry, Pechenegs fled, and Russ pursued them, flogged them and drove away from his land. «
It is known that the prince gave generously Kozhemyako and made him a «great man.» Such actions demonstrate, in what high esteem by the ancient Slavs was military valor and skill. One could make a decent fight of the common people closer to the prince, noble warrior.
In the Old Slavonic «Volhovnike» describes some interesting Old Slavic priests, warriors, magicians:
«I came Mezhibor. And Mezhibor said: «The hand — the lightning, the foot — the thunder, the hand — a sword, a leg — a hammer. Falsehood for truth — death! «And hit Mezhibor Pecheneg prince’s face, and shouted Mezhibor scary, the prince of darkness calling for help. And punched Pechenegs under the heart. And fell dead prince. «Not for ratification this, but for the pure path that is true,» — said Mezhibor. And banged his fist on the oak. And staggered oak, and dropped leaves with acorns. And cried in the woods Div, and ran out of the forest tour. And fell at his feet Mezhiboru. And with great terror ran Pechenegs Mezhiborovoy terrified by the power … «
By the way, Mezhibor — precisely the same Magi, who prophesied the Kievan prince Oleg’s death on his own horse. Magus this turns out, was not only prescient future, but possessed the rare art of unarmed combat.
«He lived in the woods Drevlyansky Dobrogast magician. His quarrel somehow Prince Igor, which caused great anger Dobrogasta. Then said Dobrogast that it is dangerous to him to do so. And in proof of his words provoked a duel three dozen warriors’s Campaign against which went completely unarmed. And … like lightning sparkled. Thin, seemed quite weak, scattered Dobrogast stalwart warriors, some mutilated, and killed one, accidentally. Arms as he served only hands but legs. «
From ancient sources that often attacked our ancient temples, warlike nomadic aliens. Rusichi brought lavish gifts to their stone statues of the gods and the robbers knew where they were waiting for a long wait, but the temple guarded by unarmed soldiers, sorcerers, magicians. And, despite the disparity, but with cues (maces), these soldiers often won. Legends of the foreigners were that wise men helped their gods, without the help of a higher power is visible to the military skill of the person.
To the main fight to the death Slavic warrior preparing for since childhood, with no fear of death. Describes this custom and Zaporozhian Cossacks. Even chieftain out sometimes dvoboy — Hertz, so do not drop your honor. Described in the archives and Hertz Bohdan Khmelnytsky with the famous Polish knight in front of one of the battles:
«Khmelnytsky took the sword kind, nice horse and rode to the battlefield. He knew that his opponent is strong and brave, so let’s think first weaken knight. After a long tyagomotinu, angry Pole arrived at the Khmelnitsky, a rearing horse, so he jumped up, and in an instant like to chop the hetman. But he guessed his cunning plan, quickly, before the horse gentleman stood on Dybok, Bogdan ducked under his horse and got to the other side. Horse Pole already down on the ground and the rider was open before impact. Khmelnitsky fully exploit the benefits slashed enemy saber. Dead when he fell from his horse, he sent a messenger to pick up the body of the Poles. «
This story shows that the Ukrainian Hetman were not only military leaders and politicians, and to the soldiers than were particularly proud Cossacks.
Almost every Cossack family had its own secret methods to improve combat capabilities of numerous nicknames Cossack genera Zhburlyay (throws enemies), Blizzard (in battle fast as the wings of a butterfly), Pidkova (oppression enemies like horseshoes … According to testimony and foreign guests Ambassadors revels where demonstrated martial skill were traditional and mass to our ancestors, which speaks about the great culture of honoring the body — a container of the human spirit … Culture is since almost forgotten. From the very recent history is known decree of Catherine the Great, offended by the Cossacks for that they did not let the queen on his sacred island banning fights and vechornytsi in Little Russia.
Monographic study of authoritative Sanskrit scholars and linguists point to a surprising richness of register lists the Cossacks, even late (XIII century), the first and last names of Aryan origin. The number of such families over the ancient Indian sources. In addition, researchers have long pointed to the close relationship of the Indo-Aryan «Mahabharata» with pelazgo Greek «Iliad» and the Etruscan-Roman «Aeneid.» Many scholars have added to this list and ancient Sumerian «Epic of Gilgamesh». Historians believe that all these works are more recent rehashing of ancient Aryan legends. The word «Mahabharata», in South Russian variant preserved as «Magabgarata.» Word MAG — most ancient origin, etymological roots are lost in the mists of time. Ancient secret language media — pagans Magi, said: «Who can — and that MAG.» The name of one of the rulers of the northern peoples mentioned in the Bible, is designated as Magog, another simply called Gog. Russian word «mighty» is related to the verb «to be able to, I was able to …». Its derivatives is Latin magnus — «big, big, powerful.» Magister — «chief, the head, the governor,» plus, «tycoon», «magnet», «magnet», «Poppy» and the name of the great Slavic goddess «Makos» is also here. The Indian word maha means — «great», hence the traditional translation of «The Mahabharata» — «(Legend) of the great Bharata.» But from the point of view of the southern Russian etymology «Magabgarata» translates as — «Magic (sacrament) great Aratta.»
In Indo-European story about the Battle of the tribes, there is an amazing record of the tribes, totems were cranes and ants, the researchers found in the ancient sources, that the valley «Crane» of the people were near the river, «Kanka» and «Hera», is a modern river «Conca» and «Milk» in Kiev.
Described in the «Mahabharata» and the so-called Kiyan or Dandgary — «Zhezlonosnye arias» («cue» or «Dundee» in Sanskrit — is spear, mace, mace combat). They went from the Indo-Aryan and Kujawy Kiyanidy Khorezm and Persian, as well as many ancient Slavic Kiya «Veles Book» and «The Tale of Bygone Years». In the lower reaches of the Dnieper in Kujawy or Dandarike — to IV century, the century of origin of the Byzantine Empire existed Institute priests, warriors (Kharakternyky) — Privy Aryan homeland. No coincidence that there emerged the Cossacks, the origins of this phenomenon witnessed only archaic legends of heroes, ancestors, the rider of Savour-Graves, that rises above the once glorious river Conca.
It should be noted that one of the sacred names of Shiva drevneyndiyskogo — Keshava, meaning Longbraid, with long hair. Words from the name — a Cossack (kasak, Xhosa — ie «Oseledets»), and the name of the warrior caste — «kshatriya».
Ancient Slavic «Hopak» — a dance-code basic exercises and techniques of the ancient martial arts. As its name obvious affinity with the Indian «gomplitami» — protector of the cows, the Greeks it is called Infantry (pegota). Indo-European sources and sacred status hopak Gopalan name suggests — one of the names of the Indo-Aryan «protector of cows» — Krishna. Of it is the Greek name of the sun god Apollo, and Slavic Kupala Kupavona and Etruscan, and Roman Cupid. «Go» — in Sanskrit — a cow. The name of the great Greek poet Homer, means a man-cow (people with cows), ie — A shepherd. According to the latest scientific data, this great Greek born in the Ukrainian land, in the ancient Greek settlement near the city of Nikolaev.
Youth with delight watching videos and reading books of various Western and homegrown «masters» of martial arts, promoting an alien culture to the Slavs of Japan, China, Korea … Now the world is firmly formed postulate that only in the East, there are pockets of the ancient martial arts. But this is misleading, even in one of the pyramids and ancient Egyptian archaeologists have discovered more than 400 drawings of methods of struggle. Skill battle as old as mankind, and every nation has the skill. Do not look for the truth away, usually it is close by and offers to those who can understand it. It is in our genes, in the blood, in the memory, «Seek and you will be given.»
