comment What is the oldest documented Eastern Martial Art that is still practiced?
You don't see how a historian would have access to historical documents? More to the point, what is the research for believing that the Bodhidharma legend has been around for longer than a century?

comment What glasses can I wear for martial arts training?
+1 for advocating seeing. Also, not every physical altercation is a knock-down drag-out struggle to the death. My glasses have stayed on in minor scuffles with friends that only escalated a little bit.

The fact that you called it legend is better than not, but it's important to squash this myth. To your point: Tang Hao, Stanley Henning, and the numerous researchers who double-checked their work were indeed looking at documents from that time. They examined primary sources and did real history.
