of studying karate
The study of karate is not just the physical activities we practice. Even more than building a strong body, it is about building a strong character.
The skills you learn in karate and the achievement of reaching goals you have set through hard work build your confidence in yourself, carrying over to the rest of life.
Karate requires you to develop good habits and exercise self-control as you train. It also requires you to make the effort necessary to achieve your goal.
Karate challenges you to think as much as you act. You learn to focus with your eyes, mind, and body. Learning the forms and movements reinforces working memory.
Make no mistake: karate is a great workout! It is a total body workout building stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength.
