Martial arts are codified systems and traditions of combat practiced for a number of reasons such as for self-defence, military and law enforcement applications, competitions and physical, mental, and spiritual development. Although the term martial art has become associated with the fighting arts of East Asia, it originally referred to the combat systems of Europe as early as the 1550s. The term is derived from Latin and means "arts of Mars", the Roman god of war. It has been argued that the term “martial” is misleading as most martial arts were never used or created by professional warriors and the term fighting arts or fighting systems would be more appropriate.
