Martial Arts developed by the Roma?

I'm writing a fic in which my character knows some obscure martial arts. He's of Roma descent, and proud of it. Are there any weaponless combat systems which were developed by the Roma or other groups that would have been referred to as 'gypsy' not so long ago? I should point out that my character has grown up as a typical American, and has not had contact with his biological family since early childhood. He identifies with his heritage, but he doesn't know whether his family hailed originally from Hungary, Croatia, etc. He has learned other combat systems, but if there is one specifically created/developped by the Roma people, he would go out of his way to master it. came up empty.
