The Djokan is a form of Martial Art of the Amazon that comes from South America, precisely French Guiana. It was created in 2010 by a Guyanese named Yannick Théolade, also known as Gran Dôkô Sawani Makan.
The Djokan originates from war practices, traditional dances, and the customs and traditions of the native people, the Bushinengé and the Créoles of French Guiana.
It is the synthesis of the native people, the Bushinengé and the Creoles.
After many years of research and complications, the Djokan was born.
