    But isn't Cap from the west coast? Far from Shaka's shadow.

    West coast as in West Africa?

    I don't believe it has anything to do with Shaka, totally different area.

    Shaka would probably prefer a fighting style that was more direct with lots of pressure.

    Are there any documentaries on African Fighting arts? Would be something really interesting to see.
