Martial Arts are systems of organized practices and traditional fighting methods. Even though the year of origin is debatable, many people are surprised to discover that martial arts began in India. These concepts spread through China, then Japan & Korea, as people traveled for commerce and shared religious and spiritual beliefs, and finally became known throughout the world. Over time, these environmental influences directed the evolution of each individual Asian martial art. Today’s modern arts are a blend of early Chinese and Indian martial arts with no adherence to any religion or belief system.
Regardless of the original intent behind martial arts, we at the Martial Arts of the Palm Beaches recognize that combat and competition is not the only part of the picture. A large number of people participating in our martial art classes do so for physical, mental and emotional development, for recreation, and for self-defense. One area is no more or less important in our eyes.
