Karate, literal translation is “Empty Hand”
While many people believe this means a hand technique or a ‘Chop’, the actual meaning refers to a hand not holding a weapon, therefore empty.
Millions of people of all ages across the world have studied the different styles of Karate. Japanese and Okinawan styles such as Kyokushin, Shotokan and Isshinryu are referred to as a Karate Dojo. Korean Karate such as Tae Kwon do or Hop ki do are often called a Dojang. There are also Chinese version of Karate. In addition there are several blends of these styles.
Students across the globe go to Karate schools to gain self-defense skills and to learn patience, self-discipline, persistence and self-control. Karate and Martial Arts training is well known for producing these admirable traits.
