    Persian martial arts are heavily influenced by India. So much they even resemble each other in the names.

    The traditional system, often called Varzesh-e Pahlavani, which is supposed to translate to "Sport of the Heroes" is a mixture of strongmen exercises and "Koshti" wrestling. Persians totally dig wrestling anyhow.

    Kosthi looks like this:

    or this (Kosthi wrestler at international tournaments):

    finally this is Pahlavani:

    The only influence china has on Persia/Iran lies in delivering surface-to-air missile systems and toasters to the country.
    I heard they like sanda over there, so that might not be true.
