Interview with Kemetic Martial Arts Grand Master,
Mfundishi Ka n Heru Jhutyms El-Salim

When virtually everyone thinks of the martial arts, they
think of Asian cultures in China, Japan, and more recently
Korea.  In fact, when martial artists of African descent are
considered, most of these individuals are primarily trained
in these more popular Asian forms.  Africa and its
descendants are usually no more than a footnote in the
history of these forms.

What if the world knew that the martial arts originated in
Africa?  Furthermore, these African forms are not simply
ancient arts which are so remote the they disappeared
millenia ago.  There are individuals who continue to study
African Martial Arts forms.

This episode features an interview and demonstration by
Mfundishi Jhutyms Ka n Heru El-Salim, African Martial Arts
Grand Master.  Mfundishi is the author of

Interview with Nur Ankh Amen, Author of "The Ankh:
The African Origins of Electromagnetism"

When the book "The Ankh:  The African Origins of
Electromagnetism"  was published over a decade ago, it
sent shock waves through the African centered

electrical diagrams.  He revises the analysis of popular
symbols including the shen, djed, and ankh.

Since publishing The Ankh, Brother Nur Ankh Amen has
