Pan Kau Rau Shen, The Original Pankration
( #2 Excerpts from the Past to Present )
Beni Hasan (also written as Bani Hasan, or also Beni-Hassan) is an Ancient Egyptian cemetery site. It is located approximately
20 kilometers to the south of modern-day Minya in the region known as Middle Egypt, the area between Asyut and Memphis.
While there are some Old Kingdom burials at the site, it was primarily used during the Middle Kingdom, spanning the 21st to 17th centuries BCE (Middle Bronze Age).
To the south of the cemetery is a temple constructed by Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, dedicated to the local goddess Pakhet.
It is known as the Cave of Artemis, because the Greeks identified Pakhet with Artemis, and the temple is subterranean .The Martial Arts time line: 20th c. BC Murals in tomb 15 at Beni Hasan, depicting wrestling techniques. (Wikipedia.com) 18th c. BC The Babylonian Gilgamesh epic describes includes the major hand-held weapons (sword, axe, bow and spear) used prior to the gunpowder era.
Pan Kau Rau Shen ( All Spiritual Powers ' Force' ) Encompassing is a codified combat system the same is as the Greek Combat Sport, Pankration. We see the most popular Martial Art sport on TV called Mixed Martial Arts.
We consider Bruce Lee the father of MMA, but the ancestor of modern MMA goes back to the land Kush (modern-day Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Kenya) called Pan Kau Ra Shen translated as Fighting with the Spirit of Ra. Ra is Egypt’s deity, God of the Sun.
The Greeks were the first Europeans to encounter the Africans and learned the system from the Kushites and brought it back to Greece and renamed the Pankration (all force,
all powers), and they took with them Kemet’s and Kush’s deities and renamed them Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Ares, Apollo, Dionysus, Aphrodite etc.
So Pan Kau Ra Shen is the actual original Mixed Martial Art and the Kushites are the forefathers of MMA. https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2014/05/18/origins-of-martial-arts-the-real-history-by-jonathan-bynoe/.
