Thang-TaFManipuri Martial Arts
Thang-Ta is a traditional martial arts of Manipur State in North- eastern India. Itfs ancient name is known as HUYEN LALLONG.
In 2010, we discovered a school of Thang-ta in Amravati Maharashtra under teaching of Master Mahavir(video above), who is the disciple of Grand Master Prem Kumar from Manipur.
Thang-ta literally means gThe art of sword and the spearh. Thus it preserves many kind of weaponry system still now, and rich bodily technique & exercises also. It looks like just between kalaripayattu and Shaolin Kung-Fu.
We donft have much information about Thang-ta, so will try to research it more in future. But social condition is not stable in the North-eastern India, so it will take time with difficulty.
