Watched a James Yeager video, as I watch youtube quite often. There was a video in which he stated that "modern pistol craft is THE American Martial Arts" or something to that effect. Now, most of what James Yeager says is pretty out there, but a lot of it is based in truth. Having looked in to this, I did see that the US does not actually have what would be considered a martial art. We have had guns since the inception of our country, so there was really no need for widespread hand-to-hand combat, or CQB (think Kungfu, Karate, Tae-Kwon-Do, etc). In this, it is a rather interesting find. What do you all think? Is gun fighting THE American Martial Art? As shooters and practitioners of tactical and defensive gunfighting, are we martial artists in our own right?
