List of Martial Arts per Country of Origin

The list below includes full contact martial arts, including hybrid fighting systems and kickboxing styles. For the sake of completeness we have also included the most representative non-full contact martial arts of each country.

However, the list was not meant to be an exhaustive collection of all possible martial arts styles. That is why very recent, exclusively regional or more obscure martial art styles have not been included. Even though wrestling is obviously full contact, it is not strictly speaking a martial art style, reason why we have not included any of the various regional wrestling styles, except those that have evolved into hybrid fighting systems.
