Karate is arguably the most well-known martial art in the world. Relying on keen focus and a firm center of gravity, Karate teaches you how to strike correctly but more importantly that you must understand the reason behind your strike. Karate is far more than just a style of fighting. It is a way to understand oneself and the world. By being like a quiet valley where every sound can be heard, a person can remove the selfishness and wickedness within themselves and become an exemplary and spiritually fulfilled individual.
