    surprisingly, not all martial arts are related. crazy i know- its almost like how different populations that have never met invented the wheel.

      Alex, quit talking out of your ass, the americans invented the wheel, and freedom, and everything else.

      To the original poster:

      I highly doubt that martial arts share a common origin. Perhaps I should ask who invented the first language, which is the root of all others?

      The need for a martial art appears wherever there are people, especially back in the day. So I propose that people in many nations invented arts. If you want a list of the "first wave", well, I suspect many don't properly exist anymore or are forgotten. So why don't you just do what I do and amuse yourself by imagining that all arts came from the Pankration of ancient greece?
      "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
      A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."
      -A.J. Newton, Boxing.

          are you trolling or are you just thick?

          the chances of two peoples on opposite sides of the world that never met evolving seperate martial arts systems is VERY VERY HIGH. you could probably go find some tribe in the middle of untouched nowhere with their own form of fighting.

                    No-one knows and that is the way it will remain. CMA'ers will say China, Silat guys Indonesia, Certain people Greece (Pankration) and Dave Humm will say Korea!What would it acheive if you found out anyway? Try and concentrate more on what you are doing now.

                          Martial arts was invented the first time a caveman told another caveman to close his fist before hitting the cavemen from another tribe.

                          There really is no other answer since we've been fighting each other since before we had fire.
                          You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

                            Yeah, but was it an Art? Who was the 1st GrandMaster of Club Fu, and what was his linnage?
