What is AWUD?

AWUD (also Duey Awud) is the umbrella term for armed Pahuyuth.

Background

The weapon disciplines of the Pahuyuth (AWUD) are based on the physical characteristics of the respective non-bodily weapons.

  • Hand-length objects – Knives (MEED)
  • Forearm-length objects – Shield (MAI SAWK)
  • Arm-length objects – Sword (DAAB)
  • Body-length objects – Staff (GRABONG)
  • Flexible Objects – Scarf (SABAI)

Analogous to the traditional combat methodology of the Gleeh-Warriors, this assignment is explicitly not about the use of a particular weapon, but above all about the nature and functioning of an object. The respective fighting style always allows to be executed with improvised weapons. In order to qualify as an AWUD-Warrior, knowledge of all Pahuyuth weapons disciplines is required.

The weaponless disciplines of the Pahuyuth (MUAI or LING LOM) are summarized under the term LING LOM (umbrella term).
