Journal History

The Revista de Artes Marciales Asiáticas (RAMA) is an initiative undertaken by the University of León in 2006, having as its main objective the spreading of knowledge about martial arts and combat sports, especially in the Spanish-speaking world. Since 2010, RAMA is attached to the Department of Physical Education and Sports and edited by the Publications Area of the University of León.

In its first period (2006-2011), RAMA contents were original research articles, media reviews, and translations of articles published in the American Journal of Asian Martial Arts, one of the most prestigious publications in the field of martial arts at the international level, whose rights for the Spanish language were acquired by the University of León. During this period RAMA was printed in paper and published only in Spanish on a quarterly and biyearly basis.

From 2012, RAMA started its second period, which is defined by its transformation into an open-access digital journal, greater autonomy from the US Journal of Asian Martial Arts, and multilingual character (English, Portuguese and Spanish).
