The history of the MARTIAL ARTS is full of the stuff of LEGEND.
Each of the ARTS has their own, though some may overlap.
Both living and the long-lost.

BUDO OF THE ANCIENTS.
The ANCIENT CHINESE martial traditions are typical of the diversity within regions that different approaches to BUDO produce.
Some emphasize animal technique/forms, singular weapons, unarmed drunkenness and so on.Many of the ANCIENT NINPO students/teachers were Chinese refugees/immigrants/settlers.
Their KNOWLEDGE passed down the ages.
Such as strategy, horsemanship, certain weapons, gunpowder, battle tactics, diet, philosophy too.
Ancient CHINA made full use of their experts, artisans and trades peoples.
Blacksmithing, pottery, art, religion and even on the water too.
The experience gained from many such incidents-of adventure, science and exploration go well beyond the strict interpretation of BUDO and were oft.incorporated to varying degrees into the JAPANESE society itself.Including it’s language etc.
CHINESE EMPERORS, SOCIETY and such, likewise added persons or ideas from JAPAN.
A famous bodyguard for the CHINESE EMPEROR was said to be JAPANESE.There are several LEGENDS within the 9CLANS of the BUJINKAN concerning cross-transfer between the two countries/peoples in many ways on many subjects.
For a cultural look and overview on such and more the guest post and site chinesewhisper.com which follows the giant gallery version linked below is worth spending some time at.
Their guest post is about the ancient masters.
