The geography of martial arts.

List of martial arts in the world.

The whole world has developed according to its culture and the influences of neighboring countries and travelers of martial arts to defend themselves.

Reading this list you will realize how every people has always tried to develop and codify effective methods of combat with weapons and bare hands.

Unfortunately, some limbs have not been handed down and have been lost, but it remains a fascinating journey in the search for the most effective fighting arts.

This is an unso complete list but already with its own structure and importance of martial arts present in the world divided geographically.

If you don’t have to find a martial art that you know I ask you the courtesy to report it to me and send me an email to add this art and with its explanation to understand exactly what it is.
