Indian Martial Arts - Ek Itihaas

India has a deep cultural heritage in mythological and historical battles fought for supremacy. The Hindu culture has a warrior clan called Kshatriyas whose main job was to practice the art of war and might. The Mahabharata war tale describes various forms of fighting with weapons such as maces, swords, lances, bows, arrows and even hand to hand combat like Mall yuddha or Dwand yuddha. Dhanurveda, a section found in the Vedas 1700 BCE - 1100 BCE contains references to martial arts. Around the 3rd century BC, the yoga sutras of Patanjali presented the technique of meditating single-mindedly on points located inside ones body, which were later used in martial arts. While various mudra finger movements were also taught in Yogacara Buddhism. These elements of yoga, as well as finger movements in the nata dances were incorporated into various Indian martial arts. The art of fighting is prominently mentioned in various ancient texts. From antiquity to the middle-ages and the modern era several techniques were indigenously developed in parts of India which are known as the Indian Martial arts. Indian martial arts refers to the fighting systems of the Indian subcontinent in South Asia. This now includes India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
