Karate is built on self-discipline, and respect. We use our training to develop our physical health, and mental fortitude. As an adult, we train multiple aspects of the martial art to become more confident and self-aware. We first learn about how our body works, the mechanics on how to build more power and to become more stable in our movement. We train all kinds of block and strikes, and learn how to defend ourselves during multiple situations. Karate is based on forms (kata) that are set moves put into a sequence.
