RAZMAFZAR





Led by internationally-acclaimed Professor Dr. Manouchehr Moshtagh Khorasani, Razmafzar has produced ground-breaking work in the reconstruction of Historical Persian Martial Arts.



The project of “Historical fencing and traditional Persian martial arts” deals with reviving the fighting techniques of Persian warriors based on an authentic and academic analysis of techniques described in Persian manuscripts from different time periods.



Reviving Persian swordsmanship and traditional martial arts of Iran is an important project that includes different combat and fighting arts that were employed by different Iranian tribes through centuries. Dr. Khorasani and the International Team of Razmafzars work in this regard is unparalleled and unprecedented.



The system is based on years of solid scientific research in the field of Iranian arms and armor and many published books and print articles related to the field. Razmafzār analyzes the application and techniques of weapons, empty-handed techniques applied on battlefields and moral codes followed by Iranian warriors such as Javānmardi principles.



Razmafzār is not only based on textual evidence but also on iconographic evidence. Razmafzār teaches historical archery based on iconographic evidence and also complete Persian manuscripts on archery from Safavid period. The techniques of this system of martial and combat arts extend from Ancient Iran to the end of the Qajar period. A number of techniques were repeated in many manuscripts be it the epic stories in form of poems, battle accounts by period court reporters or fighting manuals.

It is important to note that due to lack of any spirituality and faith which exists in almost all martial arts, I decided to leave this God forsaken group and chose not to associate myself with them any longer, The End.
