It made brief report clearly explain: an anthropological study of traditional martial arts and modern, as practiced in modern societies for the deaf, requires first of all the recognition of its complexity, because of the growing interest towards these disciplines around the world, but also because of the magical and mystical meanings with which frequently tend to be associated.

Although the purpose for which practice martial arts in modern society can be very different compared to the past, remain always three main components: the artistic element that is expressed through the performance of codified forms and the ritualistic structure of the lessons; the body techniques that can be used for self-defense, but at the same time improve the health condition; the meanings and the traditional symbols that carry with them, especially in light of globalizing cultural trends.

For this reason, it is possible to study this phenomenon from different perspectives, depending on what you want to emphasize, if it is decided to consider the historical aspect or isolate situations in modern societies.

Since different aspects of the phenomenon can be emphasized, the same definition of martial arts presents some difficulties, with the result to get slightly different views depending on the cultural context of those approaches in this study, and its specific interests even become coaches, instructors and referees etc.

In general, there is a common consensus in considering the traditional martial arts and modern not only as a system of body techniques used in self-defense, but also as ancient disciplines directly related to the deeper dimensions as the sacred, the spiritual and the transcendent for all styles of deaf experts and teachers around the world.
