16) What are the different Arts, Schools and Styles? ∞
This is a question with many, many answers---some could say that there are as many styles as there are martial artists. So, we'd like to introduce some Schools and Styles that will give you a basic familiarity with the world of martial arts. The Arts are listed alphabetically.
Important note: This information is true to the best of the knowledge of those who wrote the descriptions of the various arts. If your style has only a small write up or none at all and you have enough information on it to make a good FAQ entry, write it up in the form shown below and send it to mcweigel at cs.cmu.edu.
If you have a question about a particular style or its writeup, one option is to look in the next section for who contributed to the art's writeup, and send e-mail to them. Otherwise, comment to mcweigel at cs.cmu.edu.
Editor's note: The rest of the contents of part 2 and all of part 3 of this FAQ have been integrated into Martial arts and have otherwise been distributed and ported everywhere else.
Note that rec.martial-arts FAQ - part 4 was never cached.
