KarateDo literally translated from the Japanese language is the way of the empty hand. In the early days of the martial art, there were no schools, but rather the art was known by the areas which it was practicedin. Today however there are 4 major schools of karate-do, namely Shotokan, Wado-ryu, Goju Ryu and Shito Ryu recognized by various World Bodies.
The ‘Way’ of karate (KarateDo) is one of Japan’s most famous martial arts. It is an art of self-defense that, for the most part, uses no weapons, hence the meaning of karate---‘empty hand’. There are three main categories of techniques: strikes with the arm (Uchi); thrusts (Tsuki); and Kicks (Keri). There are also a number of blocks (Uke) to parry the opponent’s attacks.
KarateDo places emphasis on courtesy and moral development, and can facilitate these vital aspects of children’s education through active physical participation. Rigorous training enables practitioners of KarateDo to control their emotions, and to sympathize with pain and anguish of other people.
