Aha’ Satash Qan Tapya – Combat of Seth First Attack
The Qan Tapya of Aha’ Satash is designed to shorten the distance between you and the opponent while creating an opening in their defenses, then completing the attack with strikes to the face. Qan Tapya was inspired by the Aha’tyw fighters of the ancient battlefield, finding themselves unarmed against an enemy equipped with a shield.

Tahtib stick fighting promoted as Olympic event hopeful
Modern Tahtib founder Adel Paul Boulad began researching tahtib since 2000 and has since established the worldwide network of tahtib practitioners with his teaching methods. From the rural regions of Upper Egypt Modern Tahtib designed a codified curriculum from the varieties known as Tashkila. The Modern Tahtib founder then drew more inspiration and formulated joust techniques called Abousir, and also 360 combat with two opponents. The founder decided on black shirts, pants, and a three tipped sash reminiscent of a red sash worn by ancient Egyptian fighters. Unlike traditional tahtib, MT allows women to compete. MT’s greatest achievement thus far has been successfully registered with UNESCO in 2016 as “intangible cultural heritage of humanity.” MT has now set a goal for tahtib to be a sanctioned Olympic sport by 2032.

After consultation among the Council of Nabwya in disseminating the knowledge of the Aha’atyw fighters of Ancient Egypt, we are pleased to announce our new Patreon account. Three new distinct tiers are available, which will blend the four disciplines of Aha’ Kamat lessons.
Our structure and hierarchy remain the same. Nafarw recruits will have access to the basic introductory lessons of Aha’ Kamat. Haryw Aha’ Masters of Combat have access to specialized training and techniques, as well as access to the community of training partners, and live training and testing events. Masha’a Har – Army of Horus tier are reserved for tested Haryw masters, teachers, and our yearly retreat with advanced training and spirituality.
Introduction to Aha’ Satash – Combat of Seth
Aha’ Satash is intended to be a reconstruction of the first and only unarmed form taught to new soldiers. Based from the relief of boxers in the tomb of Kheruef, Aha’ Satash formulated a limited number of Hwaw – Strikes, and Sharw – Blocks to provide an effective unarmed combat discipline designed to repel a forward attack. In a military environment a soldier would be issued weapons and would be expected to keep them with him and carry them into combat. Since basic training for new recruits focuses on developing skill with their weapons and instilling discipline and teamwork, unarmed combat would rightly be considered a secondary skill at best.
