The Truth About Martial Arts -The God Mars

The Truth About Martial arts: By Teanis Tillmon.

If you have ever taken a karate class or have sent your kids there, what you may not know is the meaning of the word martial arts. it is a very popular word, but here is its true meaning. The word "martial arts " literally means " The Arts of Mars", a Roman god of war.

in my research of  ancient Rome, Mars was a god who watched over the soldiers and the farmers (crops). During war, Mars went to with the soldiers, he was their war god, and the Roman army used used his name in battle. Today , sports like MMA( Mixed Martial arts), UFC ( Ultimate Fighting Chamiponship ), Tap Out and others use the name " Mixed Martial Arts".

 This is NOT martial arts at all, it is full contact sports like boxing, wrestling, or other type sports. The true warriors of Mars used body amour, spears, swords, , tactics, bow and arrows, other weapons and, combatives ( killing techniques ), and even chariots in war.  

Today, Mars is even seen as a planet. it is named after the war deity  According  to ancient history book of Encyclopedia Mars was the Roman god of war and second to Jupiter in the Roman pantheon. Although most of the myths involving the god Ares, Mars, nevertheless, had some features which were uniquely Roman. As a protector of Rome way of life and as a defender of city borders and frontiers, important festivals connected to warfare were held in his hounour and the god also closely associated with the wolf and woodpecker.

Mars was considered the father of Romulus and Remus, the mythical twin founders of Rome. According to the story, their mother Vestal Virgin Rhea Silvia, was raped by Mars while she slept, and in her dreams she had a vision where she dropped a hairpin to the ground, and from which there sprang two twin trees. read more go to ancient history Mars.

Based on this history, no Asian arts  ( Judo, Karate, Tae Won do, Aikido, or nay other art can be considered "Martial  Arts". The only other full contact sport during Rome gladiatorial games was called ' Pancratium' taken after the Greek PanKrato or ' Pankration'. This truth WAS designed to reveal history.  if Martisl arts would be portrayed like ancient times, law enforcement of today would be the closest to it. Duty belts, guns, tasers, shields rifles. shot guns, etc are all signs of the arts of war.
