This list attempts to narrow down the top ten most impactful martial artists that have ever lived.

When thinking about all the different styles (karate, taekwondo, taiji, etc) in the world and all the important people that have helped grow the arts a list like this seems impossible at first. Yet a few individuals have made gigantic imprints on the landscape of martial arts and, without them, we would be operating in a different space entirely.

The big disclaimer for this video is that it is entirely subjective. There is no possible way my list could be considered definitive. In fact, in a few years I might even disagree with myself! Nevertheless, it is a fun experiment in trying to appreciate the real roots of our collective martial culture.
