Anyone ever heard of it? There's not much information available on the net but it's supposed to be a Basque art of self-defense.

From The Way of the Warrior by Chris Crudelli:
"Despite Zipota's disputed origins, experts believe this little known Basque fighting style was similar to the French sport of Savate and included stick fighting, mostly with a Basque walking stick. The name probably refers to the Basque word for 'shoe' and, although literature on the subject is scarce, it is thought the art probably included a number of leaping and kicking techniques combined with throwing and punching, as seen in Savate."
