 Pan Kau Rau Shen is a Montu ( Martial) art. Montu ( Mtnjw) was the Lord ( war god)of Kemet ( Egypt). Montu possessed great war skills and was the protector of the other gods ( Bastet, Seknet, Ma'at) and others. In war, Ra could be in two forms ( a Falcon or Hawk) as the solar bird or as a raging bull known as Bkha ( Buchis) as the force or strength of Ra's power. He ( Mntjw) was a master of weapons who could use hand to hand combat, a baton, knife, sword, or bow and arrows. There are many pictures of him carrying weapons. 

On the battlefield of Kadesh, Ramses the great or ( Ursaa Satepen Ra Ramsseu Maat Merit Amen) was said to have seen the enemy and raged like Montu Lord of Thebes. In the 18th dynasty other warrior Pharaohs like Thutmosis the III ( Napoleon of Egypt) is described as " A valiant warrior of Montu". It was written that Amenhotep the the II  had appeared in his chariot like Montu with his power, he reached for his bow and grabbed four arrows with one hand". 

 The history of Pan Kau Rau Shen traces all the way back to the Kushites (Sudan and Ethiopia) that stretched from Nubia to the southern part of Kemet ( Egypt). This hand to hand and weapon system was a combination of conditioning, wrestling, free-fighting, , the use of weapons, and battlefield tactics. There are many references of the Greeks who borrowed many concepts from the Egyptians and used them for war and their sports.

  Pan Kau Rau Shen I  From the Past to the Presernt Montu (Martial ) Arts Weapons

Tactical Use Weapons: The Ancients
In ancient Egypt, a soldier was trained in a variety of weapons such as the spear, knife, vows and arrows, slings, maces, and how to ride a chariot if need be. 

Pan Kau Rau Shen is Kemetic ( Egyptian) that means " Total Combat" or defeating your enemy with arms. In ancient Egypt, Ramses ( Ursuaa Stepen Ra Ramessu Maat Meri Amen ) used four main divisions in battle. One of them Bering Ra ( P' re or many armed). This group was known as the Nakhtu-aa ' strong armed men' who were the roughest and toughest shock troops of the Pharaoh. They carried broad head spears, short axes, small bronze heads, and short - topped wooden shields. The Egyptians also had the Kent-nedu- or Kings brave appeared to have been the Egyptian equivalent to the US Army Rangers, elite special operations units of heavy infantry used especially for over coming difficult positions. There are  outstanding scenes from the tombs of the princes of the Antelope District in Middle Egypt (in Bani Hassan). In the tomb of BMoII the wrestling is painted across the east wall.

Pan Kau Rau Shen I Modern Options on New Tactical Weapons or ' M.O.N.T.W ' The Modern Montu ( Martial) art: From the ancients to the modern world. 

 This concept uses a name of the war diety of Kemet ( Egypt) who the Egyptian Kings took to war such as : Ramses The Great, Thutmosis the III, and Amenhotep the II. They used the most effective and high technological weapons of their day. In the 21 st century, weapons has evolved into 3 main areas: Non Lethal, Less than Lethal, and Lethal force. SDR studies such tools for today's urban battle field. We focus on using Non and Less Lethal Weapons to neutralize escalating threats. Weapons has evolved but, the goal stays the same: de- escalate the threat and save lives. What makes our times unique is, there is always options. 

                     THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A - MARTIAL ART and COMBAT SPORT

  The difference between a " Martial Art" and a " Combat Sport. What many do not know is, the term " Martial Art" literally means a Roman god of war. Mars ( as he is called) watched over farmers and soldiers. When a soldier went to battle, they took full armour, weapons, and tactics to the battle field. A combat sport is between two people with rules, no weapons, and for entertainment ( MMA, UFC, TAP OUT, etc). These are not in anyway as martial art. It is a combat sport. Martial arts is deemed as self - defense or a military action against one or more opponents. 

Our above pics show soldiers who are in full modern gear. The special forces seen in this pic are using hand to hand preparedness with weapons. Pan Kau Rau Shen uses " All Powers" that consist of less than lethal or lethal force weapons. This includes tasers , pepper spray, batons, fire arms, edged weapons, etc. Weapons have evolved but the principle of combat has stayed the same: Neutralize the threat as soon as it presents itself with the proper force  needed. 

                                                           
    Modern Pan Kau Rau Shen is broken down into 3 distinct phases:

 1. Non Lethal:  This is the know how on applying the SDR ' Spontaneous Defense Response' to corrective postures, basic blunt force strikes, and pain compliance to decrease threat from increasing at its early stages. Hot hard, fast and fierce to reduce risk of threats or aggression.

 2. Less Lethal: Attacks that continue to increase without stopping may need additional increase in the use of force. This can include harder blunt force direct, dislocating, or disfiguring. Decreasing threat is to deal with the aggression of attacks.

 3. Lethal Force: When there is no other option in decreasing, reducing, or the attacker stopping. The only other alternative is to use deadly force. Applications of any un orthodox methods maybe applied. Anything to survive the fight. Self defense is not personal, its taking care of business. Serious business.
