Eddie Vuittonet insist that American Rumi Maki Kickboxing is not a MARTIAL ART..! Unless you have a Time Machine and can go back in History and train as a Solider in the Inca Army.. No one will ever know the TRUTH about the origin of Rumi Maki.. ( excerpt ) taken from the book by Sinchi Mike Akens.
American Rumi Maki Kickboxing is a Hybrid Fighting Style. Created by analogizing and critiquing the Body English used to telegraph the Strikes, Kicks, and Blocks... EXCUTED within the TAKANAKUY, by the various contestants of those events.
Eddie Vuittonet, was the first person to redefined those movements.. so that they could be used in a premeditated AND structured manner. To this application he used the name ( American Rumi Maki ) as a motif in order to give an expression of Honor to the Legacy of the Peruvian Inca Warriors.
Sinchi Mike Akens teaches these fighting techniques so that they can be used by his students, known as the Team Sun Warriors in the ( MMA ) tournament events.
American Rumi Maki Kickboxing
Was invented by Eddie ( STONE HANDS ) Vuittonet in the early part of the 1970ties. It was based upon his personal interpretation and research into the various fighting styles, including those of the TAKANAKUY. An indigenous blood sport performed throughout South America.
GRAND MASTER: EDDIE VUITTONET - SEEN PICTURED BELOW
Eddie Vuittonet developed the Muryo Waza fighting style in 1971.
It is one of the first forms of total mixed martial arts (MMA) in America. The fighting tactics were designed to be deployed with a para-military application, as the techniques are too deadly for sport use. Dr. Vuittonet felt that traditional Asian martial arts were to restrictive and limited, thus he incorporated what he felt were the best and deadliest techniques from all cultures and areas of the world.
With the help of his two best students Ruben Supulveda and James Thomas - Eddie Vuittonet expanded the teaching of Muryo Waza into West Texas, Eagles Pass and also into Mexico... Piedras Negras.
At that time, the Latino culture in the United States was also embracing the Asian martial arts. Many of the Hispanic immigrants migrating into Mexico from Central and South America were not interested in Asian Martial Arts; thus Dr. Vuittonet recruited many of them by focusing on a fighting festival known as the Tinku - a far cry from the traditional karate tournaments of the day.
While in California teaching Muro Waza at he Mosqueda Center in Fresno, Eddie Vuittonet and another one of his students JamesThomas began to research the fighting festival of the Tinku taking place in Boliva and Peru.
Eddie Vuittonet saw this as an opportunity to merge his fighting style of Muro Waza into a new and more streamlined form of Kickboxing.. This merger would tone down the paramilitary military aspects of Muro Maza, and give it a more practical application as a combative sport, with a competition style agenda.
American Rumi Maki - A.R.M. is based upon the Takanakuy.
Pronounced - ta - can - akey
The TAKANAKUY is associated with the battle of MAULE between the ancient people of MAPUCHE and the Inca Warriors under the reign of Tupac Yupanqui.The Words Rumi Maki, come from the ancient Inca Language known a Quecha. Which means ( Stone Hands )In the early part of the 1980ties, Eddie Vuittonet started his first American Rumi Maki Kickboxing school called the MarkaWasi Fighting Club. See Web Link
It was located in Raymondville Texas and spread into the city of Paterson New Jersey. AKA, Little Lima. Markawasi is an ancient city in Peru were all the fighting arts were born. It's legend says that the Inca Warriors were given the power to turn their hands into solid stone. The greatest fighters were giving the secret knowledge of the (Agape Sun Warriors) and became known as the Sinchi Runa.
Paterson N.J. has the largest population of American Peruvian citizens in the United States of America. This is the birthplace of the Muryo Waza training lineage for American Rumi Maki Kickboxing.

Because our association is still in the pioneering stages of it's development, we have tried to address a few of it's basic concepts within the Question & Answer format listed below.
If you would like to learn more about N.A.R.M.A. or to find out how you can become a member, please go to our contact information page and send us your request by email.
What is American RUMI MAKI Kickboxing.?
American Rumi Maki , is a modern version of the ancient Inca Fighting System, which has manifested into the competition fighting sport for the MMA among it's practitioners here in the United States.
A.R.M. was created into a Martial Sport based upon the fighting festivals of the Takanakuy held in Bolivia and Peru.
What is the TAKANAKUY.? Please see the web link for more info.
It is for this reason that ( A. R. M. ) is classified as both Competition Fighting System, and a cultural blood sport in South America, since no boxing gloves are required in their full contact fighting events.
HOWEVER: In American Rumi Maki Kickboxing
Boxing Gloves are worn for protection by all MMA Inti Runa competitors. Inti Runa is a person who trains in American Rumi Maki
Today, N.A.R.M.A. is actively seeking to establish a second organization in the country of Peru called S.A.R.M.A. - For - South American Rumi Maki Association. This new association will serve as a foundation for teaching Dr. Eddie Vuittonet's training lineage to MMA fighters in the IFC events. (AKA)
Inka Fighting Championship tournaments in Peru.
HOW DID IT COME IN TO EXISTENCE?
( American Rumi Maki ) was designed as a motif, in order to capture the imagination of the mythological legends, surrounding the high altitude physical conditioning and the military fighting concept of the ancient Inca Warriors.
The words Rumi Maki are actually derived from the ancient Inca Language, which means " Stone Hand " The words Inti Runa, is also derived from the Quecha Language and means.. Sun Warrior
American Rumi Maki Kickboxing, was designed by Grand Master: Eddie Vuittonet based upon his personal interpretation of the various fighting styles performed by professional practitioners of the TAKANAKUY, as seen in the picture posted below.
American Rumi Maki Kickboxing
Also uses specialized shamanic breathing techniques, designed to control the rush of adrenaline released into a persons body during the Fight or Flight responses to all combat related situations.
What is Soroche Breathing?
The Shamanic Breathing Technique use in the Rumi Maki Kickboxing is called " Soroche Breathing TM"
Soroche Breathing is a shamanic practice for high altitude endurance which allows you to shift your breathing rate by alternating from mouth to nose and then varying the lengths of you exhale in order to change your breathing patterns, helping you to flood the body with oxygen. The ancient Inca shaman practiced these techniques in order to prevent altitude sickness.
Applying this technique during a competition sparing match will help train you to stimulate the body's parasympathetic response.
The human body has an inborn, "pre-wired" response for dealing with dangerous situations - it is called the "fight or flight" response. Both fighting and fleeing require the same activities on the part of the body's organs. The purpose of this response is to prepare the individual for vigorous muscular activity in response to a perceived threat.
By itself, this response is normal, healthy, and adaptive. But when the "fight or flight" response occurs while engaged in a physical altercation, we easily begin to experience the negative effects of battle fatigue and stress. Instead of breathing slowly from our lower lungs, we begin to breathe rapidly and shallowly from our upper lungs which can produce a phenomenon called hyperventilation.
Hyperventilation is something that every competition fighter must avoid in order to prevent the symptoms of shortness of breath, dizziness and a host of other respiratory problems.The good news is that with a little practice and training, you can easily reverse the symptoms of hyperventilation, which has an effect similar to altitude sickness.
The human nervous system has a component that works automatically which is called the autonomic nervous system.
The autonomic nervous system has two divisions: The 'sympathetic' and 'parasympathetic' divisions.
When the sympathetic division is active, we experience the fight / flight response, and when the parasympathetic division is active, we experience the exact opposite. One produces chemicals into the body which causes tension & stress, and the other which produces a calming effect of rest & relaxation. These two systems work to help us maintain our physical balance.
Through a shift in your consciousness, and by practicing these Shamanic breathing techniques, you can change your bodies reaction to the ( autonomic nervous system ) responses. When Competition Sparing with Soroche Breathing Techniques:
- oxygen consumption decreases
- breathing slows
- heart rate slows
- blood pressure decreases
- muscle tension decreases
- plus you feel a growing sense of ease in body, and calmness in the mind.

Over the past two decades, Acachi Sinchi: Eddie Vuittonet has cataloged and perfected the components of his training lineage into five different levels. Each of the five training levels have been modified into a new and more stream lined competition fighting system of which he calls " American Rumi Maki " Sinchi Mike Akens makes it clear, that this work is a declaration of his own interpretation of the Inca Fighting System, based upon the re-codified techniques of various Peruvian Combatants participating in the Takanakuy.
As a note:
Just as the Peruvian Fighting Style of ( Vacón ) which is an adaptation of
( CQC ) for the Peruvian Military. Developed in the 1980s which is a mixture between Asian martial arts like jujitsu along with vicious street fighting techniques. As well as Tony DeSouza who created ( Cholitzu ) from an adaption of Muay Thai Kickboxing. More recently we see ( Lu Ju Tai ) coming to the forefront for ( MAA ) fighters in Peru.
The application of American Rumi Maki as a Martial Sport is now the primary focus. The modern version these Stone Hand techniques are more correctly called, ( A.R.M. - C.Q.F. ) American Rumi Maki - Close Quarter Fighting.
A.R.M. - Is a Sports FIGHTING SYSTEM for the MMA - It is not a Martial Art. But it must be placed under some kind of a heading so it falls under that category.
Is there anyone living in the United States who has knowledge about the actual Ancient Inca Fighting System?
The answer to that question is Yes!. There are many people living in the city of Patterson N.J. who are from other training lineages. The City of Paterson New Jersey, also known as Little Lima, has the largest Population of American Peruvian Citizens in the United States. Paterson New Jersey is the Headquarters of the North American Rumi Maki Association.
As a note:
The North American Rumi Maki Association was created in order to pursue the knowledge of the Inca warrior. Sinchi Mike Akens has been diligently researching it's history. Juan Florez of Peru, has written a book about some of it's history, and through his organization ( Auka Wasi ) has reunited many of the scattered training lineages in Peru in order to help him re- codify the ( Ancient ) Form of Rumi Maki and share it with the world.!
In addition to the work of Jaun Flores:
Sinchi Mike Akens has also written a book on the history and development of the modern version of American Rumi Maki explaining Dr. Eddie Vuittonets Adaptions of the ancient five degrees into the categories listed below.
These techniques are now Trade Marked in behalf of N.A.R.M.A. under the law offices of Chris Stewart PC. in Amarillo Texas.

HOW DID IT BECOME A COMPETITION SPARING SPORT?
The original purpose for our sparing events were meant to improve the practitioners workout and thus create better stamina and endurance. As students from other schools begin to spar against one another during special events held by our sports club.
Numerous rules and regulations were set up in order to control the level of force applied by each opponent.
These rules for the game have now been adapted as the official regulations for our sport. As the concept of American Rumi Maki Kickboxing began to grow, both the exercise aspects and the sparing aspects were copy righted into a Health and Fitness Journal.
This journal is now governed by the members and managers on the board of certification and training for the N.A.R.M.A. organization.
As in all sports, American Rumi Maki Kickboxing has a strict set of rules that governs competition and ensures safety.
For those who want to test their skills, American Rumi Maki Kickboxing offers the opportunity for competition at all skill levels, from Sparing clubs to national MMA tournaments.
American Rumi Maki Kickboxing provides the means for learning self-confidence, concentration, and leadership skills, as well as physical coordination, power, and flexibility.
From a sparing sport it has evolved into the Mixed Martial Arts because it develops complete body control, fine balance, and fast reflexive action. Above all, it develops a sharp reacting mind well-coordinated with the same kind of body.
Training in American Rumi Maki Kickboxing gives a person an effective self-defense system if the need arises.
DO INSTRUCTORS CALL THEMSELVES,
Guru - Sensei - or Sifu?
( Neither ) The correct title for an Instructor is Sinchi which is the Quecha word for Leader or Chief.
