The truth is, the greeks brought fighting to the middle east which is where it really developed. The Pakistanis and Indians developed their own boxing styles which were a combination of the Greek styles and the Chinese Ryu Kyu Kempo. The Chinese sport had rules, but the Indians and the Pakistanis made the sport badass and threw the rules out the window.

Yeah, how hard could it be to start a sport with almost no rules? Does anybody else wonder why the martial arts use to so limited? What idiot got the idea to have both men stand up the whole time and just hit eachother in the face.
I don't know, but the Americans developed boxing. I think that the sport is at its best with next to no rules. There have to be some to preserve the competitors. I actually think that the UFC has too many rules, but that's just my opinion.

I think that martial arts are only as limited as you make them. As Don's quote says (kinda): Use no way as your way, make no limitation your limitation.
