    Martial Arts x Martial Systems


    #2
    I think it needs to be remembered how MANY martial arts have become more than straight self-defence to becoming "bushido" (wrong website to use that word). Many martial arts have been used for the purpose of "self-improvement" and physical/psychological well-being. Look at Tae Kwon Do, it's being taught as a sport at a great number of schools! (Noone argue with me on this one, in my district it's an ongoing point of discussion amongst the dojangs)

    From what I can fathom, Krav Maga grew in a society where national survival has been an issue up until the last two decades (my political/historical opinion). Many of the martial arts have evolved in societies where the pursuit of culture and the arts have been desired in times of 'peace'.

    When you live in fear and doubt, aesthetics sort of take a back seat!
