"Karate-Do is a lifetime study"

Karate is a martial art of Japanese origin that deals with attacks through evasive body movements and/or blocking, and counter attacks using kicks, punches and strikes. People variously practice it as a form of self defense, a way of keeping healthy and as a sport.

Aside from being a very popular form of martial arts, Karate also adds great values to its practitioners:
Self confidence, courage, emotional stability, the ability to focus, to withstand high pressures and control and command.

The practice of karate is divided into two elements: kata (forms) and kumite (sparring). However these two elements should not be considered separate, as they constantly overlap and rely on each other.

1. Kata:

Known as the illusionary fight, where a group of defensive and offensive movements are performed in different directions.

2. Kumite:

Known as the actual fight, where 2 equal in -belt level, weight, gender and age- karate players engage in a time- definite match using their arms and legs, each trying to overcome the other player's attempts in order to score points.
