Martial arts are systems of codified practices and traditions of training for combat. They are studied for various different reasons, including improving combat skills, fitness, self-defense, sport, meditation, mental discipline, and character development.

Martial arts were still a popular area of study in the 23rd century, so much so that Starfleet incorporated a martial arts dojo (or training hall) into the recreational facilities aboard their starships, such as the Constitution-class. (TOS novel: The Entropy Effect)

Vulcans raised on the Vulcan homeworld practiced various forms of martial arts. (TOS - Starfleet Academy novel: The Gemini Agent) The Vulcan Tuvok was trained in not only Vulcan martial arts, but in the martial arts of many Alpha Quadrant cultures, such that he knew at least 94 ways of killing an person while unarmed. (VOY episode: "Meld")

Jasmine Tey was trained in Klingon martial arts. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)
