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, though, because many Martial Arts are and were never actually used in warfare or in battle. Nowadays, Martial Arts is often synonymous with East Asian fighting sports.

The history of Martial Arts, however, covers the entire world and spans many thousands of years. Depictions from Ancient Egypt dating as far back as 3400 BC show some kind of combat.

And archaeological evidence from places as far apart as Babylonia and Vietnam proves that combat and struggles with swords, sticks and spears took place in ancient times as well. 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 already existing combat systems in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

This is when popular Martial Arts such as Judo, Kendo, Karate, Jujutsu and Muay Thai got their current rules and regulations.

Boxing, Fencing and Wrestling became official sports in Europe. Later in the 1900s, Kick Boxing, Taekwondo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Capoeira were invented.

Martial Arts are considered to be excellent sports for physical, mental and spiritual development because they often require both physical and mental training.

As physical fitness improves, mental health usually gets better as well 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 the sports, there are still many Martial Arts that are executed competitively.
