Martial arts name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for a form of martial arts.

There are hundreds of types of martial arts (with many more variations of each), most of which are Asian in origin, but there are martial art forms all over the world. I used the names of these art forms as inspiration for this generator, but I didn't want to stick too much to a particular culture as it would probably lead to names which could be translated to something completely irrelevant.

The first 2 names in this generator are loosely based on African martial art forms, the next 2 are loosely based on South American art forms, the fifth name on Middle Eastern arts and the last 5 on Asian martial arts, as those are the most numerous and usually most popular when creating a new name.
Again, they're loosely based on the many cultures of the world, which are so varied and rich I felt it was better to not be too strict.

Most names can be used for many other cultures though, especially if you need a name for a fictional culture. Do keep in mind that picking a name for an existing culture means it has to fit the language of that culture as well. A name like 'Ngao Shilan' won't fit Japanese culture for example, their language is completely different.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
