The principle of 'sshi(soden )one karate master could pass on his knowledge to only one person* kept the art dormant. +ut now, anyone can learn $arate.!any countries have their own brand of martial arts. $arate, &udo, &u(&itsu, and Ninutsu originated from &apan- $ung u )ushu*, Tai /hi come from /hina. Thailand is the home of !uay Thai( one of the most deadly of all martial arts. +ra0il has developed its own form of &u(&itsu called +ra0ilian &u(&itsu, which mi#es the standing strikes and throws in &u(&itsu with fighting on the ground. /apoeira is another form of martial arts from +ra0il which combines acrobatics, music and dance. 'nterestingly, /apoeira was developed by the people of 1frican descent, who were brought in as slaves to +ra0il. The sport of 2avate originated in rance, more specifically in the port town of !arseilles where it was  practiced by sailors. The deadly martial art form of $rav !aga was developed by the 'sraeli Defense orces. 't is now taught to military and law enforcement personnel all over the world. The fighting technique used by +atman in /hristopher Nolan3s +atman films is called the $eysi fighting technique.

Martial arts teach life skills
!any individuals are learning a martial art for the life skills it imparts.

't can give you control over your life and improve your well being. 1s a martial art student or a competitor, you learn how difficult it is to beat your opponent, how much hard work it takes for you to win a contest and begin to empathi0e and respect practitioners and trainers from other forms. 1s students, you will learn to bond with others of your doo and grow together. Note that to reach proficiency in $arate or any other martial arts, you will have to do a lot of practice. !artial arts are not for the impatient and those who want quick results.
Choosing a martial art to learn
 
1ll types of martial arts have their advantages and disadvantages. No one martial art is better than the other, but since some of them train you in certain techniques, you will be better placed if you are confronted with that situation. !!1 is one of the best techniques if you are fighting on the ground.

The %lympics and other international sporting events have done a great deal to bring martial art lovers together. !artial art practitioners from across the globe compete against each other in their chosen sport, from 2avate to ing /hun. %ften, martial artists serve as brand ambassadors for their respective nations. 1 !uay Thai artist can tell you a lot about Thailand, its customs and rituals while an 'aido artist will be able to enlighten you about &apan and its rich cultural heritage. 1lso, there are martial arts schools in every maor city across the world, and as a martial artist, you can go anywhere in the world and speak one common language 5 your love for you chosen martial art.
