No Holds Barred: Dr. Shaka Zulu on Kemetic Masters of the Martial Arts 2014 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with martial artist, and producer and co-host of the Official True School Radio Show on WHCR 90.3 FM in New York, Dr. Shaka Zulu.

Dr. Shaka Zulu is also part of the Universal Zulu Nation, and is an organizer of the 12th annual Kemetic Masters of the Martial Arts.

Kemet, as he explained in this interview, is the original and indigenous name for what is now called Egypt.

This event takes place this Saturday, February 22, from 2 PM to 6 PM, at the National Black Theatre at 2031-2033 5th Avenue between 125th and 126th Streets in Harlem, New York 10035.

We spoke with Dr. Shaka Zulu by phone Friday.

"I have some of the greatest martial artists that are living on this Earth that are going to come out and demonstrate martial arts to the community," he said.

"This is a beautiful thing. So we're going to have demonstrations in karate, kung fu, jujutsu, ninjitsu, and a few others, and also capoeira, and also demonstrating and showing the hip-hop connections to capoeira, hip-hop, and martial arts."

This family-friendly event will also feature a salute to the warriors of the past, present, and future, as well as holistic health and historical information and much more. All ages are welcome, with admission being just $5 for youth and $10 for adults.

We also discussed many topics, including how the history about the real origins of the martial arts and combat sports in Africa thousands of years ago has been concealed despite mountainous documentation; how martial arts promotes positivity rather than negativity; how many of the commercial events, especially in MMA, have veered from this path; the history and background of the many warriors being honored at this event; Malcolm X and the martial arts; the need for holistic health and good nutrition; and much more.
