Traditional Karate, as an art of self-defense, evolved in Japan over many years. Its technical base is founded on the Okinawan principle of “Tode”, which itself is based an “Chonfa”, the fighting art of China, a weaponless form of self-defense. Its philosophical base is Japanese “Budo” which is common to many Japanese martial arts. The combination of Okinawan fighting forms and Japanese Budo philosophy eventually became Traditional Karate. Central to the technical structure of Traditional Karate is the concept of “Todome-waza” or finishing blow whereby a single technique totally disables an opponent. This high technical proficiency makes Traditional Karate a form of high art.
Sport karate is a good form of exercise and have the end goal of declaring a winner and a loser at the conclusion of a competition. The ultimate goal of training in Traditional Karate is not merely the perfection of fighting skills, but rather the total development of the human character where fighting is no longer necessary.
