I have been surfing the internet and came across the martial art called Abir.At first, I thought what's this but doing independent research its very legit and on the level. Its the martial art of the pharohs, brought to eygpt by the relatives of Joseph, in the bible. Hyrocliffs support this to be true but due to prejudices in the region you wont hear much about this. However, Funikoshi, in letters to his earliest students mentioned this when discussing the origin's of Karate. To find out more google search for Abir Warriors.

I did a google search (gots to luv me some google) and found some more information with a different opinion:

This is from ryukenkan.co.il:

What is “Abir”?

Abir is the fantasy cult “Martial Art ” developed by Yehoshua Sofer. While its effectiveness is as good as any Hapkido or derivative Kuk Sool Won system, its fantastic claim that it comes from the twelve tribes, handed down in total secrecy amongst religious Jews, and is now being taught as the Sofer family system pushes the limits past all credibility. The second claim that a religious Jew should not study any other system because they come from idol worship, hammers in the final nail of Abir's coffin and plants it firmly in the “cult” category. This latter claim begs the question, “If, as they claim, a religious Jew should not study any other arts due to idol worship; why does Yehoshua Sofer have 7th Degree black belts in Korean Kuk Sool Won, Hapkido and a 6th Degree black belt in TukGong Musool?” Do as I say, not as I do?

Here is the official site. Haven't read it yet.

Edit to add -

Ok, now I have looked at it. My BS-o-meter is ringing quite strongly on this stuff.

Guys,
I've studied Abir. I studied it for about 2 minutes. Then I cracked open two more.
