Gatka is the art of sword fighting and is the traditional martial art of the Khalsa. It has been taught from teacher to student for hundreds of years. Jathadar Sahib Baba Nihal Singh was once asked if the art of Gatka was ever written down, and he answered, "Of course. It is all in the Jaap Sahib."
This book is the first attempt at documenting the sword techniques of Gatka in written form for us mere mortals. I will let someone else be the judge if it is successful or not. This book is highly collectable as it never enjoyed a second printing and there has never been an other one like it.
