Karate is a martial art that originated in Japan and is now practiced by more than 23 million people worldwide.
Karate’s popularity stems from its wide appeal.
Those who take up karate do so for any number of the following reasons:
Fitness and Flexibility
Health and Wellbeing
The nature of Karate is embodied in Jitsuei Kai Karate Do’s culture: every student is encouraged to achieve self-improvement at their own pace in a supportive and respectful environment. This is achieved through self-discipline and mutual trust with the regular practice of exercises, movements (Kata) and sparring (Kumite).
This continual opportunity for physical and mental growth manifests itself in greater sense of wellbeing, self-awareness and respect for others.
“A knife, no matter how blunt or sharp, can always be improved by the gentle and careful application of a well-chosen steel”.
