What Is Karate?

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

Why It’s great To Practice Karate

Karate training provides both mental and physical benefits that range from much more self confidence as well as a increased feeling of well-being to improved professional performance. Adults and kids enjoy the group interaction as they learn together but each at their own pace.

Karate: Some Historical Information At the turn of the 20th century, Anko Itosu gained permission to finish the shroud of secrecy for people who wanted to learn martial arts and started teaching Karate in Okinawan schools. This brought about further expansion by one of Itosu’s students, Sensei Gichin Funakoshi, who unveiled the art to Japan in 1922.

Funakoshi made many modifications to the art to make it readily available for 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 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 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.
