Mesoamerican Philosophy. Lessons from the Mexican Martial Art of Xilam

In this talk and demonstration, martial arts researcher George Jennings will highlight key elements of the pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican scientific worldview through the structure and performance of the fighting and human development system of Xilam.

The talk will uncover aspects of personal transformation and transcendence through a consideration of the elements, seven indigenous animals, and the numerical and pre-Colombian calendar systems that all form the basis of the philosophy of Xilam: To “remove the skin” and to discover oneself.

George Jennings, PhD, is a qualitative researcher interested in alternative and comparative philosophies. He is a lecturer in sport sociology/physical culture at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
