  • Answer: Each form of martial arts began in its own way. Some have said that kung fu (gong fu) originated in China over 2000 years ago, and was constantly being developped. This may or may not be true, however Gong fu is considered the grandfather of all martial arts.
    Judo was invented by a very small man in Japan around 1960. He was often picked on for his size, and he was unable to learn the combat arts that were offered. instead he invented judo (the gentle way), which involed using leverage, physics, and body mechanics to effectively throw and seize an opponent, which was perfect for a man of his stature. Now, judo is a world-wide competitive martial art, where people of all shapes and sizes can compete.
    Around 1950, Chogun Myagi created Okinawan Goju Ryu karate, from what he was taught by his naha-te karate teacher, all originating from Gong fu.
