What’s Karate?

Karate is described as a Japanese martial art whose actual physical elements seek the development of protective and counter-attacking body movements. The themes of conventional karate training are fighting and self-defence, though its mental and moral aspects concentrate on the complete development of the individual. This is facilitated by the discipline and persistent effort required in training.

Why It Is Good To train Karate

Karate training provides mental and physical advantages that range from more confidence as well as a increased feeling of well-being to improved professional performance. Adults and children have fun with the group interaction as they learn together but each at their own pace.

Karate Historical background and its Development into a World Martial Art At the turn of the 20th century, Anko Itosu gained permission to end the shroud of secrecy for those who wished to learn fighting techinques and began teaching Karate in Okinawan institutions. This brought about even further expansion by one of Itosu’s students, Sensei Gichin Funakoshi, who presented the art to Japan in 1922.

Funakoshi made many modifications to the art to make it readily available to the Japanese including changing the name and karate as we know it today was born. Towards the end of his life, Funakoshi was instrumental in forming the Japanese Karate Association (JKA) which set about making karate a world martial art by sending out its best instructors to teach it all over the globe.

Today, karate is used by a myriad of people right across the world and even though the lines are often blurred between karate history facts and exagerations or legends, the contribution made by the old Okinawan masters and those that followed them should not be forgotten.

Karate history can be traced back some 1400 years, to Daruma, founder of Zen Buddhism in Western India. Daruma is said to have introduced Buddhism into China, incorporating spiritual and physical teaching methods that were so demanding that many of his disciples would drop in exhaustion. In order to give them greater endurance and strength, he developed a more progressive training system, which he recorded in a book, Ekkin-Kyo, which can be considered the first book on karate of all time.
