    "Yah mean like karate, and that? Nah, maybe some wrestlin', and how to use a lance and a shield, and a bow and arrow-or a knife, but nothin' so fancy. Heck, mostly it was all about counting coup for the longest time-just get close enough to touch someone-Plains Indians wasn't too concerned with killing each other most of the time, and when they did, it was a by the numbers, straight forward, bash their skulls in while they lay sleeping sort of thing. Gins chaged all of that, anyway."

    This guy's honesty was really refreshing. I learned long ago that people are very smart and ingenious. It wouldn't surprise me at all if there have been systemized fighting methods in certain Native American cultures that have been lost to antiquity. This side of eternity we may never know.
