Like a lot of modern martial arts, it is practiced for self-defense, but it is also practiced in various different places as a sport in the form of practical shooting: a set of shoot sports that are governed in the United States by the United States Practical Shooting Association.

There is now a new sport that is becoming official in a certain part of the United States of America called slap fighting.

History of Crossbow - Ancient China
Crossbows have an extensive history that takes up a decent chunk of humanity's archaeological history and spans various different continents around the world. I only mention this because crossbows, like the slingshot I talked about earlier, are one of the earliest ranged weapons humanity has used. It is even impressive that even after we invented weapons like guns and missiles and grenades, crossbows are still being used to this day. Some people use crossbows for hunting food. However, there are still some limited military operations that crossbows have even in our modern world. In Brazil, soldiers in certain jungle units are trained to use crossbows and some Chinese military units/police forces use crossbows with the Chinese government justifying its usage by saying a crossbow helps to stop people carrying explosives while reducing the risk of detonation.
