In all ages of man, mortal and exalted have had need to defend themselves. While some use weapons, others chose to fight bare-handed so as to "always be armed". Over time these more "brutish-methods" evolved to produce new schools of self-defense, retaining effectiveness but pursuing deeper spiritual philiosophies and demonstrating elegence along-side combative prowess.

Thus the Martial Arts were formed.

Like Melee and Brawl everyone (even Mortals) can learn Martial Arts. However, just as a Dragon Blood is stronger than a mere Mortal, and a Solar Exalted overpowers all, the power of the practitioner will produce greater results and effect when performing the same style.
