    I was wondering if there was any kind of unarmed techniques used in gatka/ shastar vidiya? For example what if someone manages to disarm his opponent? It seems like Sikhs would have developed a unarmed technique to use as a last resort.

    I can't seem to find any information about platha, except for a brief mention on a website promoting hinduized Sikh cults such as udasis, nirmalas, etc.
