    Now that my ears have stopped bleeding from the zurna music... I'm curious what the nature of the dance is. It doesn't appear to be very "martial".

    Its a folk dance, seen in some near-East Islamic countries. Its possible to see similar dances in the Baltics as well. Its sometimes even done in Greece...a relic of the Turkish domination.

    It symbolizes a boy coming of age. ;)

    I don't see alot of translation to the self defense arts in the videos, but thank you for the social aspect of the knife used in the cultures of the world.

    Lots of cultures have knife dances, as it turns out.
