Ever thought about the first arts ever existed in history and wondered what came first. Here we have two of the first few arts that started in the early days of history and kept developing over time, Martial Arts and how it transformed from just self-defense mechanisms to a culture and a way of life, same as Meditation as it began to help stay calm and create thought clearness. Know the stories of these two activities and how they developed over years.
Martial arts are codified systems and traditions of combat practiced for a number of reasons such as self-defense; military and law enforcement applications; competition; physical, mental, and spiritual development; entertainment; and the preservation of a nation's intangible cultural heritage.
Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. Scholars have found meditation difficult to define, as practices vary both between traditions and within them.
