Sikh/Indian internal martial art This particular clip of Shastar Vidiya seems to be practicing just some external drills, but some folks have reported seeing videos that demonstrate more of an internal connection. I'll see if I can dig up some of that footage.

It would be interesting to find out whether there is a direct historic link between Indian and Chinese/Japanese internal martial arts, especially given that esoteric Buddhist and Hindu practices were carried East to China and beyond.

Indian history is so vast and might be there some link between china japan and India. In early time India was a hub of knowledge. Many great university were there in India like Nalanda University.

The roots of many Eastern traditions, belief systems and practices (physical and mental) originated in India, and were carried by religious/spiritual types to Tibet, Mongolia, China, Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia. There are lots of stories of traveling monks and holy men, et al. The more I have seen over the years, the more compelling the theory is that that the foundation of internal processes in the Far Eastern martial arts came from India.
