Okay, now that the wood goat year has started I've got a lot to say. But first let me get some of this stuff I've piled up for you out of the way.
1.) This is a martial art dance form from East India. It has material that I know from Indian Dance and from Chinese martial arts. China and India have a lot in common culturally, but they may be a few hundred years out of sinc. Indian is much more comfortable with its religious localism than China is, that might be the biggest difference in the current era.
2.) Here is some footage from the Chinese demonstration at the 1936 Olympics. Awesome, some choreography, some games, Guan Gong wielding a halberd? what else?
