Hi All, I have always been a big fan of cultural and language differences as well as the things we all have in common. So I am looking for terms and words from other cultures and languages that mean or describe Fighting and Grappling.
Please list the word/term, the language and territory it's from and the meaning.
Mano a mano - Spanish - Hand to hand.
Scrap - English/US - East coast/Boston - to Fight
Tatakai - Japanese - Fight
Lutar - Portuguese - Fight
I would love to compile a huge list and I think this is the place to do it.
