Historically, Japanese Karate originated from the age of the Samurai, when the worker classes were weapon-less. So, the art of fighting with bare hands, or “kara-te” evolved as a form of self-defense. The philosophy of KYOKUSHIN Karate emphasizes the achievement of personal goals, whether physical, mental or spiritual and stresses the development of patience, respect and character.
