Traditional Iranian Martial Arts (Varzesh-e Pahlavani)


The history of traditional Iranian martial arts can be divided into four major epochs. This division is based on the research of the available resources and material. There are gaps between these epochs. At certain periods there is no mention of Varzesh-e Pahlavani. We are not sure what the status of this sport is during those periods, but we believe there must have been some movement although not dominating enough to have been documented as thoroughly as before.
