Yes. The Maharaja you see above? Is Black. Why? Because the original people, the original civilization, the original fighting and healing arts like Yoga...all were created by we Afrikans. Prior to the caste color system compounded by extreme British racism propelled Black people to the bottom of the social and political ladder in "India".
I have a very distant family member who lives in India. When he told me that knife, saber and cutlass fights happen semiregularly in the smaller cities there? I had a problem believing it. I was like...Nahhhhh.
Then he showed me this:
This is pretty crazy, right? A single troublemaker is armed with a cutlass...a long old skool dueling blade...and he gets set upon and smacked around by the group he apparently threatened.
My distant cousin said that not even the modern Silat schools teach how to run from and/or fight a group of big men. He asked me to share one of my videos with him, so he could share his friends.
jaise aap chaahen, mere chachere bhaee. [ I'm pretty sure I wrote: "As you wish, my cousin." But my HIndi really sucks, sooo...don't hold it against me if I wrote: "You are a lizard testicle" or something crazy ].
