Since Warrior bands first roamed the land...
1 A.D.

Since Warrior bands first roamed the land, there will have been fighting techniques practiced.

Many cultures have formulated fighting and combat systems. In some cases these systems were closely related to the military, in others they were developed by religious groups as a means of both exercise and protection.

From these monasteries came the internal search for truth and freedom. The hardest warrior to conquer is the warrior within.

These two aspects of the Martial Arts, the internal and the external, came together most famously over 2,000 years ago in the Province of Hunan, North China.

On Wu Tai mountain around 370 A.D. a temple was being built.
370 A.D

On Wu Tai mountain around 370 A.D. a temple was being built. The temple would have many rooms and halls, attendants and employees to look after the extensive grounds. It would become prosperous and attractive to the bandits that roamed these lands.

It was called the Shaolin Temple and because of its remoteness and because of its tolerance, it would become a sanctuary for retired military men, for the disenchanted and for refugees escaping from the law.

In order to protect this prosperous community from marauding bandits, the warrior monks came into being.

To keep themselves healthy and fit for their long hours of meditation the monks practised the eighteen routines of Luohan boxing, an ancient martial form.

In 500 A.D. to this temple on Wu Tai Mountain came Bodhi Dharma.
500 A.D

In 500 A.D. to this temple on Wu Tai Mountain came Bodhi Dharma, a holy man from India, a Buddhist in the Zen tradition, formerly establishing the Chan School of Buddhism in China.

He became the patron of Shaolin Martial Arts.

Bodhi Dharma introduced Kung Fu to the monks at the temple. 'Kung Fu' means 'skill achieved over time through practice'. His Kung Fu was called Chi Kung; a discipline of breath work and movement for healing and strengthening.

Chi is energy, the electromagnetic spark of existence and Kung means work.

These exercises were the foundation of Shaolin forms and the techniques developed in later centuries, whether Jiu jitsu and Aikido in Japan, Tae Kwon Do and Hap Kido from Korea, T'ai Chi Ch'uan from China or Muay Thai from Thailand, they have all been influenced by or have their roots in the techniques used by the warrior monks to protect themselves from bandits.

Okinawa is the birthplace of modern karate.
1400

Okinawa is the birthplace of modern karate. In the 15th century weapons were banned and the weaponless fighting forms flourished.

The modern freestyle forms came into being when the Americans left Japan after the Second World War and brought the Martial Arts to the U.S.A. They put their own interpretation on Martial Arts, making them more sports orientated and amalgamating them into the modern freestyle forms we know today.

Through trade between China and Japan,specifically Okinawa - Kung fu developed into Okinawa-Te
1879

Through trade between China and Japan, specifically Okinawa - Kung Fu developed into Okinawa-Te. Okinawans developed an empty-handed fighting system that became the Karate we know today, which was born out of necessity due to weapons being banned by the feudal Lords. It is also said that Karate originally meant \"T'ang Hand\", referring to the martial art practiced in China during the T'ang Dynasty between the 6th and 9th Century.

Through trade between China and Japan,specifically Okinawa - Kung fu developed into Okinawa-Te
1897

On the 1st April of 1897, Hironori Ohtsuka started a school where he studied Shindo Yoshin Ryu Jujitsu, under the supervision of Sensei Shinzaburo Nakayama, the third Grand Master of this style of Jujitsu. The essence of this art lays emphasis upon the nature and the grace of movement. This study of movement stressed the importance of natural flowing movements. These lessons play a major part in today's \"Wado\" karate. In defense and attacking techniques, the use of the opponent's body, and weight and movement play an equally significant role in defeating your enemy as your own body movements.

When Sensei Hironori Ohtsuka registered his own style of Karate, which he called
1934

Wadu Ryu began back in May 1934 when Sensei Hironori Ohtsuka's own style of Karate became recognized as an independent style. Its techniques combined his own innovations with natural movements found in the other Martial Arts.

Meiji Suzuki, a controversial figure in many ways, is probably one of the most forward thinking.
1970

Master Meiji Suzuki, 5th Dan Wadoryu, has studied his art since the age of seventeen with the world-masters, including Hironori Ohtsuka Grand Master and founder of Waduryu Karate. Meiji Suzuki is a dedicated perfectionist and the katas here illustrated are presented with complete confidence in their authenticity.

Meiji Suzuki, a controversial figure in many ways, is probably one of the most forward thinking.
1970

Meiji Suzuki, a controversial figure in many ways, is probably one of the most forward thinking, and certainly one of the most inventive, free-fighters in the British Isles. The 34-year old Meiji came to Britain for the first time in March 1970, having been invited over by his former instructor from Japan, Tatsuo Suzuki. Meiji quickly became established in the London area, and opened his own club in Judd Street, WC1.

Meiji Suzuki profile featured in Combat Magazine: 'An Eastern Outlook with a Difference'.

Master Meiji Suzuki thinks that mixing styles - contrary to most Japanese beliefs - can work well, especially in free-fighting and competition. Suzuki believes strongly in taking techniques and adapting them, regardless of what style they may be from. He once said, \"I believe people should enjoy sparring and all karate, but they can only enjoy it by having the freedom to use the techniques that suit them\"

Fighters Magazine article - When is a Martial Arts system not a system - a style not a style.
1987

Master Meiji Suzuki's thoughts in Fighters Magazine, which is as relevant today as it was in 1987 – 'When is a Martial Arts system not a system - a style not a style?'

One man's answer to this riddle is, 'when it becomes a method'. So states Master Meiji Suzuki.

'I wanted to break out from any one style. If you have a goal, then you must have a 'Way' to reach it. That is the 'Do' part...(Suzuki then sketched a mountain, showing that the goal is to reach the top). Which Way shall we take?. We can take any Way. So I called it 'Unlimited or infinite'. This is Mugen in Japanese. The Infinite or Unlimited Way. It's up to you to choose your path.

The universe is movement. We're a part of the Universe. Our own selves already know how to move in the universe. When you make a good movement, you feel immediately that it's right. That movement is the closest to nature's way - therefore stronger. The natural movement of the human is the strongest. So, in Mugendo our movements are as close as they can be to nature human movements.
