Okichitaw is a martial art based on the fighting techniques of the Plains Cree First Nations, It was founded and first developed by Canadian martial artist, George J. Lépine.
As in many martial arts, much of training is based upon one-to-one combat. the attacker initiates the combat, offering a physical threat using basic weapons – tomahawk and knife attacks, or a punch. The student demonstrating the technique responds to the attack, usually by immediately moving into the attacker's space with a combination of blocks, strikes, holds, rolls or throws to complete the technique.
As in other grappling arts, rolls, flips and body dives are means of extricating oneself from an attack. In Okichitaw, these manoeuvers are also methods of moving into a technique - the flip, roll or body dive are part of the (takedown).
