No, I am not. Just saying it's credible. Karate as we know it is certainly Okinawan, but every style is basically a mixture of previous ones and they all evolve over hundreds of years. Bouddhism has origins in India, (then went through China and reached Japan) so I suspect martial arts may have followed closely.tumor said:Are you sure about origins of martial arts in India ? how come they don't practice any, now ?
I think Indians do have styles of there own these days, but there still hasn't been a Jigoro Kano or Bruce Lee type figure to popularize the Indian styles in the west yet. I have seen at least one of them on TV, I forget the name but it seemed pretty rough.
