Re: What is a Martial Art?

My thank to those who responded, Perhaps it was too tought a question for some, they had to depend on an external source for their opinion?
Mary Malmros, Don't you have any Certificates? Is there not a governing body to say who can and who can't teach!
therefore it has to be approved, and therefore is officially recognised

For a concept to become a Martial Art, it must benefit the individual, benefit the local community, and benefit society as a whole.

A Martial Art (or Military Skill) must benefit the individual, his squad, his Regiment.

For me I see little difference between these two answers, so I would be inclined to say that the first answer encompasses both

now let the fireworks begin!
