Karate is a martial art. It is a striking art for punching, kicking, knee strikes, elbow strikes & open hand techniques. It encourages students to learn self-discipline & it is beneficial for one’s health. It is not used for attacking others but utilized when we need to defend ourselves.
Martial arts can be a positive, healthy activity for your kids—if they’re involved in a discipline that matches their interests and personality. But with a dizzying array of martial arts options, it can be tough to pick the right one.
Each discipline requires slightly different skills and techniques in order to be successful. Depending on the child, he or she will likely prefer one over the others. Finding the right match begins by understanding each discipline and philosophy.
