the history of karate
The history of karate
  • The history of Karate is full of uncertainty and mythology.
  • It has been suggested that 1,500 years ago a young Buddhist monk (Bodhidharma) invented a method of self-defence that was possibly the original form of Karate during the 5th or 6th Century AD.
  • Travelling from India to China through the Himalayas, he used his hands to defend himself against wild life and hostile natives. His religion prevented him from carrying (and using?) weapons.
  • Once in China, he blended in with the local residents, and developed a system of exercises and physical techniques of Yoga, which consisted of stretching postures and deep breathing.
  • Eventually, his system developed into a very strong martial art that gave those who practiced it, strength and confidence.
