Since there are at times a necessity to differentiate between those arts generally considered eastern (karate, wing chun, muay thai, etc.) and those generally considered western (fencing, boxing, wrestling, etc.), I propose the development and propagation of tags for
western-martial-arts, specifically so-written so as not to detract from potential future tags dealing with
eastern-philosophy or similar should they arise.
I'd further argue that this would be a necessary differentiation (as opposed to the unnecessary tagging of
martial-arts) in cases where we might be referring to the broader inquiries of subjects such as the oldest extant eastern martial art.
Does this seem appropriate?
