MOʻOLELO: KUʻI A LUA

Ku’i A Lua
Aloha kākou!
Today’s Moʻolelo / #tbt is a throwback from Jan. 2009 as a part of our Kuʻi A Lua pack. Kuʻi A Lua roughly translates to “The Art Of Lua Fighting", where Lua is the ancient art / practice of “a type of hand-to-hand fighting in which the fighters broke bones.” Weapons were scarcely used in this type of warfare, just straight up 1-on-1 scrapping with a more ferocious fringe, although a much more conventional variety of combat. Kuʻi A Lua was also the divine deity (God) who versified, educated and trained the select few who practiced this style of fighting; so you see, this ‘gift of jab’ has been passed down by the Gods.
