What exactly is Karate?

Karate is described as a Japanese martial art whose actual physical elements seek the continuing 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 target the all round development of the individual. This is caused 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 rewards that range from more self-confidence as well as a increased feeling of well-being to improved professional overall performance. Adults and children enjoy the group interaction as they learn together but each in their own pace.

Karate: Some Historical Information At the turn of the Twentieth century, Anko Itosu gained permission to finish the shroud of secrecy for individuals who wanted to learn martial arts 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 more accessible for the Japanese including transforming 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 around the globe 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 must 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.
