History of Martial Arts
The name Martial Arts comes from Latin and refers to Mars, the Roman God of war arts of Mars. That name is a bit misleading because many Martial Arts are and were never actually used in warfare or battle. Nowadays, Martial Arts are often synonymous with East Asian fighting sports.
However, Martial Arts' history covers the entire world and spans many thousands of years. Depictions from Ancient Egypt dating as far back as 3400 BC show some combat.
Archaeological evidence from places as far apart as Babylonia and Vietnam proves that combat and struggles with swords, sticks, and spears also took place in ancient times. Chinese Martial Arts came into existence some 4,000 years ago.
The earliest forms of Martial Arts in Europe date from Ancient Greece, where boxing and wrestling were some of the earliest Olympic Games.
In Ancient Rome, Gladiators used Martial Arts to make it out of the Colosseum alive. Martial Arts developed and evolved all over Asia and Europe, from Samurai Sword Fighting and Indian Combat Arts in Asia to Medieval Swordsmanship in Europe.
Modern Martial Arts evolved from existing combat systems in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
This was when popular Martial Arts such as Judo, Kendo, Karate, jiujutsu and Muay Thai got their current rules and regulations.
Martial Arts are considered excellent sports for physical, mental and spiritual development because they often require physical and psychological training.
As physical fitness improves, mental health usually improves, and there is always a strong focus on concentration, determination, self-esteem and self-control.
Although some Martial Arts schools focus on mental well-being and physical fitness and have eliminated the competitive aspect of sports, there are still many Martial Arts that are executed competitively.
