Martial Arts Party Supplies – The Background

Martial Arts Party Supplies are based on martial arts, the extensive systems of traditional codified practices of combat. Martial arts are practiced for various reasons. Some of theme are self-defense, physical health and fitness, mental and spiritual development as well as competition. In the modern terms, martial art is not limited to Japanese or Asian techniques, but all forms of fighting arts. Some martial arts are “traditional” and tied to an ethnic. Other martial arts are modern systems developed by an association or the founder.

The earliest evidence of systematic training in the art of combat emerges in both Asia and Europe in the late 1st millennium BC. The foundation of the Asian martial arts was laid down during 480-221 BC, the Warring States period of Chinese history. It was the period of the origin of Shaolin Kung Fu. In Europe, at that time, Boxing, Wrestling and Pankration were developed and were represented in the Ancient Olympic Games. The Romans were very fond of combat arts and their gladiatorial combat was a public spectacle.

Various combat manuals from the European Middle Ages have survived. They depict various styles like two-handed swordfighting and word and shield etc. The basis of the German school of swordsmanship is formed on Johannes Lichtenauer’s Fechtbuch, a Fencing book of the 14th century. During the medieval period, Asian martial arts were also being well-documented. With the establishment of samurai nobility in 12th century, Japanese martial arts began. So did the Chinese martial arts during the Ming era. Indian martial arts were well-depicted in the Malla Purana and the Agni Purana.

The martial arts developed as modern sports out of traditional fighting systems from the mid 19th century. In Europe, boxing and fencing saw major development. During the same period, the foundation of the modern forms of judo, karate, jujitsu, and kendo was laid. In china, modern martial arts developed in the 1930s after the foundation of the Central Guoshu Institute by the Kuomintang government in 1928.

During the end of the 19th century trade between the United States with China and Japan grew widely. And so did the western interest in Asian martial arts. The first man to teach Asian martial arts in Europe was Edward William Barton-Wright. He was a railway engineer and had studied jujitsu while he was working in Japan between 1894 and 1897. He also developed an art and called it Bartitsu which combined judo, jujutsu, savate, boxing and stick fighting.

Bruce Lee was one of the first instructors to openly teach Chinese martial arts to Westerners. He also founded Jeet Kune Do system, its roots being in Wing Chun, savate, western boxing and fencing. His movies generated media interest in the Chinese fighting systems.

Martial Arts Party Supplies – The Options

You may select Basic Party Pack from our Martial Arts Party Supplies. It includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Martial Arts Kids Party Supplies. It has much more items than the Martial Arts Basic Pack. The Martial Arts deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Martial Arts Kids Birthday Party Supplies. It would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Martial Arts Party Pack Add-On. It contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Martial Arts Party Favor Boxes separately as well.

I’ve personally used Martial Arts Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Martial Arts lover kids.
