In depicting the Egyptian
figures involved in the
diagrams portraying
judo holds, the
individuals are described
as Egyptians and their
negro opponents. The
intention is to draw
attention to the
supposition that the
white figures are
Caucasian. This fails
to observe the conven-
to portray African
coiffure as a bun, a 
tight-fitting hat of sorts:
and all figures have
this style - both black 
and white are African.
In addition, naming the
figures white fails as 
well to realize that to
show stances clearly
contrast is needed. Martial 
arts, Egypt being in Africa 
and inhabited by Africans, 
is an African legacy to the world.

Above is the picture of Bodhidharma of Tamil Nadu in India. He formed the Shaolin School of Buddhism and learning his martial arts 
trainings which historians claim is perhaps thousands of years old, their unique form developed - Shaolin martial arts. From here, 
developed all other Asian forms of the art. Bodhiharma is prognatious, his lower jaw extends. This is an African trait and this feature
 identifies him phenotypically as African. Africans gave the world martial arts and its conventions as in the way drawings depict it. 

“Bodhidharma is credited with bringing Zen Buddhism to China and he is the First Patriarch of Chinese Zen Lineage. He was born on Oct. 
5th. (Chinese Lunar Calendar) in Southern India, and was the third son of an Indian King. Bodhidharma arrived in Shaolin-si (small forest 
temple), China from India and taught Zen Buddhism. He also introduced a systematized set of exercises designed to strengthen the mind 
and body, exercises which allegedly marked the beginning of the Shaolin style of temple boxing. Bodhidharma's teachings later became 
the basis for the majority of Chinese martial arts.”, art history, Paul Marc Washington,
