The earliest documented evidence of martial arts practice and study dates back over 2000 years. Murals in the tombs of ancient Egypt depict fighting techniques being used in combat and competition. The first Olympics held by the Greeks in the 8th Century BCE included boxing, wrestling, and pankration. The development of martial arts has directly coincided with the spread of civilization across the globe, and every culture on Earth has engaged in the study of martial arts.
The development of fighting arts on the Asian continent is well-documented and includes a wide variety of styles, approaches, and techniques. These arts have been handed down through teachings and through written documents over the centuries, and all forms of modern martial arts can trace their roots back to the original Japanese, Chinese, and Korean methods of warfare.
Jung Shin Martial Arts honors the traditions of these early fighting arts through the study and practice of their history and techniques.
