History ofKarate
Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Shotokan karate, is generally credited with having introduced and popularized karate on the main islands of Japan. Funakoshi was a student of both Asato Ank and Itosu Ank (who had worked to introduce karate to the Okinawa Prefectural School System in 1902). Funakoshi had trained in two of the popular branches of Okinawan karate of the time, Shorin-ry and Shreiry. In Japan he was influenced by kendo, incorporating some ideas about distancing and timing into his style. He always referred to what he taught as simply karate, but in 1936 he built a dojo in Tokyo and the style he left behind is usually called Shotokan after this dojo. The modernization and systemization of karate in Japan also included the adoption of the white uniform that consisted of the kimono.

Developing characteristics in karate

Many people look at the martial arts and consider them to be the contributing factors to the violence displayed in this games and shows. But another part of the coin is that in this sport, people learn to protect themselves and others from the attacks of the enemy, learn various actions and exercises to maintain the body in good condition, healthy.

Undoubtedly, injuries will occur. Usually, they are scrapes on the feet and ankles, because our skin is soft. Safety is uppermost in all instructors mind. The learning of new skills is very closely supervised to ensure everyones safety. The completion of a technique is only allowed when a student has demonstrated complete control of technique.

Concentration is improved through

developing listening skills during the demonstration portion of teaching a new technique and followed through by having the human repeatedly practicing technique, with emphasis on each repetition being a little better than the last one. In fact often times men with special needs such as hyperactivity disorders are recommended to participate in martial arts because of the clear benefits of their structured training

Self-discipline - is the ability to get

yourself to take action regardless of your emotional state. One of the main characteristics of self-discipline is the ability to forgo instinctive and immediate gratification or pleasure, in favor of some greater gain or more satisfying results, even if this requires effort and time. SELFDISCIPLINE help to improve grades and increase concentration in some cases in practicing KARATE.

The analysis of the history shows that karate is now certainly has the right to act as an independent form of martial arts because as a genuine learning martial arts can not act as a simple hobby, but sooner or later becomes a way of life. So, Karate - is an organic complex of psychophysical training the mind and the spirit of man, based on a system of protectiondevices and counterattack, in which all body parts are used the most rational way.
