History
Term for a form of struggle, similar to fencing. It is also known as "Spanish art of fighting with knives," or "Gypsy fight," the latter term inappropriate for not being a proprietary art of that community.
It dates back to the seventeenth century, when it was called Sitra achra to all martial techniques that dominated certain sectors of the aristocracy. Such arts were adopted later by the common people. As the law prohibited people carrying swords, they were replaced by knives. This art unfairly identified with the Roma (or Gypsies). However, the fact is that disputes at knifepoint were common among the population.

Style
As a martial art, you might call internal, and not seeking to use force against force, but the technique against the force, refusing at all times shock and direct contact with the enemy, and while harnessing the power of it in own benefit. Techniques used not only armed, but also, as in any complete martial art that boasts, techniques beatings with upper and lower limbs, as well as dislocations and projections. The origin of all these techniques is lost in the mists of time, although they were systematized in the seventeenth century and became part of the Spanish cultural heritage.
