Lati khelaIndia, Ancientmore like playing with sticks than sparring. May be played in group with drums to cheer them up.
T'ai chi ch'uanChina, 1580Like kung-fu. Very aesthetic moves. It's also done for meditation and breathing but can otherwise be used in real fights. It's meditative benefit teaches how to stay calm even in stressful situations (fight). Seems to lack proper defense. Different flavors : Wu style, Chen style, Yang style…
La canneFrance, 1800'sNot very useful outside of competition and not really realistic
German Ju Jutsu Germany, 1970 Jiu jitsu is the father of karaté and aikido. German ju jutsu takes from jiu jitsu but also judo, brazilian jiu jitsu, wing chun, muay thai, boxing and sambo, amongst others, covering all distances (ranged, close, and ground combat). It is taught to the german police.
Aikido Japan, 1930 Aikido is a kind of lure : you lure your opponent into thinking he's got support (he won't fall to the ground), except you are slowly and progressively getting him to the ground. Doesn't seem very realistic either
Quarterstaff England, 1570 Plus réaliste que la canne française, le quarterstaff anglais contient des techniques de combats logiques et portés sur les coups, tout comme dest techniques de défenses. Ne fonctionne qu'en combats distant et si l'adversaire ne tient pas le baton
TomoiMalaysia, 1890 Malay version of Muay Thai, very dangerous, very efficient, good powerful strikes, defense is counter attacks and clunches.
TahtibEgypt, -2.500 BC Another stick martial arts with drummers playing, but this time it's more about choreography and staying in the rythme rather than actually sparring. Not very useful in combat.
KuntaoSoutheast Asia (Malaysia, Philippines,Indonesia,Singapore) ~1400 "The way of the fist", very dangerous and effective attacks. Ultra fast aggressive strikes. Good techniques to neutralize guards. I don't understand why thy don't put on protections !

What's with instructors not letting go after a triple tap ? Why do they make their trainees suffer until they tap ?
