Karate: Some Historical Information At the turn of the Twentieth 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 schools. This resulted in even further expansion by one of Itosu’s students, Sensei Gichin Funakoshi, who presented the skill to Japan in 1922.

Funakoshi made many modifications to the art making it readily available to 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 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 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.
