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.

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.
