Western Martial Arts Discussion Forum

Some people believe the Chinese invented the Martial Arts. It's more likely that they were spread to Asia by Alexander the Great when he stuck phalanges all up in the continent's wet parts.

Either way, only idiots would ignore the massive contribution the west has made to the science of hurting people.

Boxing, Bartitsu, Fencing, Pankration, Wrestling, and more.
