It was probably in Chinese, so the exact dating will be pretty hard. Shanghai and Canton were two centers for early Martial Arts films that dominated the Chinese films in the 1920's.

Martial arts began the first time someone hit someone else. Ever since then man has worked to find more efficient ways of winning fights with others. Over time they shared what they learned and passed on the ideas to those that came behind them. It would be virtually impossible to determine what the first 'martial art' was and the time frame, but probably the first time two humans fought each other would be the date.More informationOf the martial arts most known today, the Asian martial arts are said to have started, as a compiled discipline, in India, from where they were carried to China, Japan, Korea and other parts of Asia. However, there are also influences of Polynesian martial arts in the Far East martial arts of today, as well as local influences from continental China, the Ryukyu islands and the Jomon people among others.There are claims that European martial arts resulted from those practiced by Celtic tribes and Indo-european tribes. In Africa and the Middle East, many martial disciplines were developed by Arabian tribes, and in the Americas many native tribes had their own martial arts, transmitted through generations.

Calling someone "Master" is a common in Martial Arts. It's more a sign of respect than of subservients. However, it is debatable by some. Many martial arts instructors prefer a translation equivalent to "Teacher" in the respective language, such as "Sensei" in Japanese, "Sifu" in Chinese, "Sabeomnim" in Korean and so on. The belief is one truly never masters the martial arts as it is an ever learning experience.

I dont think so. He is pursuing a Mixed Martial Arts career

I have never seen any indication that Bruce Lee ever visited or studied a martial art in Burma.

I suspect most martial arts fans would say Bruce Lee's "Enter The Dragon", because Bruce Lee is just such an explosive character and the film is chocked full of action. But in the end it is down to personal choice and one of my favourites is "Kiss Of The Dragon" with Jet Li.

There is really no such thing as a best discipline/form of martial arts. With martial arts, each form has strengths and weaknesses. It also depends on what type of a learner you are. For example, there are some martial arts forms that get you out on the mat and fighting from the start; they tend to be the types of martial arts forms that are focused on grappling (sort of like wrestling). On the other hand, other martial arts forms will have you practicing for months if not years before you ever spar (Practice fight). It can also be said that some martial arts are easy to pick up, but difficult to master, which others might be extremely difficult at first, but plateau at the end. All in all, I think it's fair to say that you have to go with what appeals to you, and that's where YOU will be most successful. By the way, since you asked, I like Taekwondo for it's power and flexibility.

Martial arts didn't originate in any one country. Virtually every culture that has ever existed has had an indigenous form of fighting. Any time someone had to fight, they quickly figured out what worked and what did not and taught that to the other folks in the village.

He is widely considered the greatest martial artist in living memory. he also competed in many martial arts competitions and won them all with relative ease. he was a pioneer and reinvented the way the world looks upon Asia and martial arts, along with his amazing philosophy it is hard to say he isn't one of if not the greatest martial artist of all time.

No. It is not a fighting technique. That being said, in a more general sense (and not a sense that people ever use the term "martial arts"), there is a potential martial (military) value to parkor. There is overlap between the two where breaking falls and rolling are concerned.

possibly she was picked for charlie in the chocolate factory because she did gymnastics. She has competed in gymnastics since she was five. i got that from imdb: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1455681/bio

Probably as a result of the promotion of Far Eastern martial Arts in the West. Throughout a period that spanned roughly the late '70s to the mid '90s, interest grew in Western society regarding the martial arts that were practiced in the Far Eastern countries such as Korea, China, and Japan. This was promoted by some of the martial arts films that came out of the same period and starred the likes of David Carradine, etc. Karate and Judo had always been a minority martial arts sport that had been persued in Western countries ever since Victorian times, but US popular culture accelerated the level of interest in martial arts via film and TV shows. People who were not particularly physically strong suddenly realised that they could defend themselves by the use of Oriental martial arts if they found themselves to be bullied, threatened or abused, and the enthusiasm for the technique found itself a new following in Western society.

The total number would be very difficult to estimate. And the number of active practitioners is going to be different then the total that have ever studied a martial art. And how many classes would be required to say yes to the question?

The first movie Kristen Stewart has ever been in was a movie called ''Catch that kid''.

Not according to Chuck Norris. He greatly respected Bruce Lee and there was no question in his mind that Bruce could beat him in a match. However, Mr. Norris has done a great deal of good for the martial arts community and certainly ranks high on the list of great martial artists.

The first movie he was ever in was Animal House(1978).

Bruce LeeSecond answerChuck NorrisThird answerThe answer is very, very subjective. To claim Bruce Lee is to forget the 2,000 years of recorded martial arts history that preceded him. There is no way of telling if he was the pinnacle of practitioners if other famous martial artists died before him. Regarding Chuck, he can't be included in the running considering that he didn't even practice Chinese martial arts.

Nosferatu was the first Dracula movie ever made which came out in 1922. There was a silent film featuring a vampire released in 1913 called the Vampire, which to my knowledge was actually the first vampire movie. Vampire of the coast in (1909) was the first vampire movie ever made and it was a silent movie.
