Borque K'tal
A somewhat ritualistic unarmed combat style found amongst some citizens of polities in the Sophic League. Borque K'tal is noted for its extreme self-control at all levels of application, from that of ordinary sophonts through to S1 transapients and even to a few S2 transapients who prefer a single physical form. It is a classic 'soft' style martial art, relying on subtlety more than physical force. It is known for being among the first martial arts to include explicit training/indoctrination/inoculation of memetic conflict as well as physical conflict. Practitioners of Borque K'tal, whatever their physical form, are notable for their extremely graceful movements.
