What’s Karate?

Karate is described as a Japanese martial-art whose actual physical elements seek the growth and development of defensive and counter-attacking body movements. The themes of conventional karate training are fighting and self-defence, though its mental and moral aspects target the over-all development of the individual. This is helped through the discipline and persistent effort required in training.

Why It’s great To train Karate

Karate training provides both mental and physical advantages that range from a lot more self confidence and a heightened feeling of well-being to improved professional overall performance. Kids and adults experience the team interaction as they learn together but each in their own pace.

Karate History and its Development into a World Martial Art At the turn of the Twentieth century, Anko Itosu gained permission to end the shroud of secrecy for individuals who wanted to learn forms of martial arts and began teaching Karate in Okinawan institutions. This brought about additional expansion by one of Itosu’s students, Sensei Gichin Funakoshi, who introduced the art to Japan in 1922.

Funakoshi made many modifications to the art for it to be 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 practiced by a myriad of people right across the world and although 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 strength and endurance, 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.
