Key Benefits

The practice of karate (whether in its more traditional form or as a modern sport) provides numerous benefits to participants of every age, such as:

  • improved health and physical condition
    (strength, balance, flexibility, cardio-vascular health, coordination…)
  • improved focus, concentration and energy
  • acquisition of self-defense skills
  • increased self-confidence, self-esteem and self-respect…

Other Key Features…

 Core Life Skills:

Karate builds character, and it teaches and promotes important values and life skills, such as: discipline, respect, perseverance, integrity, honor, sportsmanship, problem resolution skills, non-violent conflict resolution…

Karate is for Everyone:

Karate is accessible to all (including male and female participants at any age, and athletes with disabilities) and unlike many other sports, its practice is very affordable. All you really need, in order to get a great workout and to learn, is a uniform (gi) and access to a recognized dojo (club and instructor)!

Challenging yet Regulated:

While dynamic and exciting, modern Olympic-style (WKF) karate is the safest of combat sports, with very strict kumite (sparring) rules prohibiting excessive contact, well-trained expert officials, and competent medical staff present at every major event.

Universal:

Karate is a universal sport, being practiced everywhere in the world. It is one of the most popular of all the Olympic sports, especially with young athletes, and transcends all cultural and social barriers.
