WHAT’S IN A NAME?
First of all, The name in of itself is a holy name is the Traditional Japanese religion. In fact, many aspects of Wakandan culture are Japanese — or East Asian in origin.
Their shooting part of the flick in South Korea looks like a non sequitur, but the structure of their society is a mix of cultural elements. The structure of their city is East Asian if it is anything.
SHURI IS A PLACE IN OKINAWA.
There is this fascination with martial arts in Wakandan culture. The first recording assembly of fighters practicing was in Spanish cave paintings, but modern Eastern martial arts have their roots in China and India.
That said the fight scenes were really a lot of capoeira and Brazilian jujitsu to my mind.
"Capoeira was born as a simple method of survival. It was a tool with which an escaped slave, completely unequipped, could survive in the hostile, unknown land and face the hunt of the capitães-do-mato, the armed and mounted colonial agents who were charged with finding and capturing escapees,"
They told what was going to happen in a funny way when Shuri challenged her brother which was funny in terms of the movie. In terms of the comic, the comedic angle is lost because Shuri is as good a fighter as her brother in the real MCU.
“Is there any member of a royal blood who wishes to challenge for the throne?"
"This corset is really uncomfortable, so could we all just wrap it up and go home?"(Zuri and Shuri exchange from the 2018 BP movie)
In the comics, the stage is set early for Shuri to become the Black Panther. She defeats Klaue and his army upon their attempt to invade Wakanda.
In the comic, her power actually surpasses her brother's power due to spending time in Djalia.
