The art of vajra mushti is a collection of grappling and striking techniques. It is also the Sanskrit name for a knuckleduster weapon that historically was used by fighters. The earliest recorded writings on the art date back to the 5th century and can be found in the religious text Buddharata Sutra, although it is thought that the system predates those writings and was regularly practiced by the Kshatriya warrior caste.
Closely related to the ancient Tibetan martial art known as lion’s roar, vajra mushti is claimed to be the martial art of the historical Buddha’s bloodline.
