    The first martial art was wrestling. There are examples of this that predate 1200 BCE by over a thousand years. Here are a few links for your edification:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_wrestling

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belt_wrestling

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epic_of_Gilgamesh

    That first link quotes a date of 2300 BCE.

    In conclusion, you have no idea what you're talking about and are a poor student of history. Thank you and have a nice day.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Many people say many things about the origins of martial arts, but this fact remains: in 20 years I will build a time machine and travel back to the dawn of humanity. There I will teach Cain the martial skills he needs to defend himself from his sheep herding asshole brother Abel. That knowledge will be passed down and form all the martial arts we know and lo(ath/v)e today. I know this because I visited myself in a dream and and informed myself of my mistake, however I dare not change my course for fear of a paradox that will rip the time-stream asunder.

    Edit: Darn. Preceded by a serious post.

    There is a thread on this theme, perhaps you might contribute to it?

    Incidentally

    TaeBo -> Korea-> pankration -> śastravidyā -> kung fu -> jjj -> judo -> bjj -> TaeBo. Direct lineage.

    This is established fact (Well...according to TaeBo Master, anyway)

    They developed seperately.
    Asians and Europeans both started to form combat systems around vaguely the same time - most date Chinese martial arts origins at about 1000 bc (similar for Greco-roman wrestling, Celtic societies also wrestled), Alexander wasn't till the 300s.

    TBH it's just a pretty logical chain of events: men fight, men realise there's ways of fighting that are better than others, men develop fighting system as a result of experience/observation, system becomes sport cause, hell, who doesn't like beating on their buddies for fun?
