What Is Karate?

Karate is a Japanese martial-art whose actual physical aspects seek the continuing 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 focus on the all round improvement of the individual. This is helped through the discipline and persistent effort required in training.

Why It Is Good To Practice Karate

Karate training provides mental and physical benefits that range from more confidence as well as a increased sense of well-being to improved professional overall performance. Adults and kids benefit from the team interaction while 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 individuals who wanted to learn fighting techinques and began teaching Karate in Okinawan schools. This resulted in additional 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 millions 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 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 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.
