EASTERN AND WESTERN PEOPLE'S ATTITUDES TOWARDS MARTIAL ARTS
Abstract
People in the western and eastern regions have different attitudes towards martial arts. Previously
martial art has been a sport for the westerns but now it has also become a sport to easterners.
Sportisation of Eastern styles has been an important theme following Western models of
rationalized sport particularly where combat-centered arts have transformed more or less into
competitive activities based upon moral philosophies. Studies show that Eastern martial art is
growing tremendously in the West following their seemingly esoteric nature. In this regard,
martial arts in Western and Eastern is termed as disciplines but not sports with different
connotations for practitioners. It is believed that the western people have more interest towards
the martial arts compared to eastern people. Martial art plays an important part in masculinity
aspect of both the western and eastern people. Drawing interview data this paper will explore
how Western people have more positive attitudes towards the martial arts than eastern people.

EASTERN AND WESTERN PEOPLE'S ATTITUDES TOWARDS MARTIAL ARTS
Introduction
Many people in the western and eastern regions have different attitudes towards martial
arts. However, western people take martial arts as a serious sport compared to the eastern people.
In addition, western people have been experienced practicing martial arts for a long period of
time making them more equipped and interested than the eastern people. Previously martial art

western and eastern people.

There are several reasons why the western people have more positive attitudes towards
the martial arts that eastern people. One of the reasons differentiating the two group’s behavior
towards martial arts attitude is masculinity. The eastern people have a negative attitude towards

not take it as a sport rather as an avenue to gain masculinity. However, masculinity has led to

been highlighted in the eastern parts of the world include rape and brutal murder cases. Women
and their children are the most affected victims of Gender Based Violence. The character of men

masculinity include martial arts, class, race, capability and gender (Brown & Leledaki, 2010).
Lawyers see the features mentioned earlier as the most critical in the eastern people society. Men
who are subjected in different ways are referred to as marginalized masculinity. Masculinity has
advantages like remuneration, rights, and privileges that are unseen due to normalization to the
eastern people (Brown & Leledaki, 2010). There are several levels in the hierarchy of manhood
