Perfection of CharacterGuiding Principles to Martial Arts and Every day lifeBy William Thomas

History of Shotokan KarateMaster Funakoshi is the founder of Shotokan Karate.But he died many years ago.Interesting fact; Master Teruyuki Okazaki alive was a student of Gichin Funacoshi and Mastoshi Nakayama and he is now head of Shotokan Karate!

Ranks and levels of karate Karate ranks are divided as belts in different levels The levels are {Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced}.My style of Karate belt levels are from{White Yellow Orange Green Purple Brown and Black.} Other belt ranks are {White Yellow Orange Blue Purple Red Brown and Black.}Or in other order.

Karate Katas and TechniquesKatas or forms of Karate are filled with many Techniques and Moves. Most of the Techniques in katas areDefenses Strikes and Attacks.And they are also Stances.

Karate Kicks Attacks and DefensesAttacks, Kicks and Defenses are common in Karate.But the only thing you can not use with Karate is to use hand held weapons, Hand held weapons are used in other martial arts. This is because Karate means empty hand .In Martial arts there is a spirit shout called a kia. Used mostly in attacks. And like a loud shout!

How to achieve new levels in KarateTo achieve new levels in martial arts you need to train well and try your best .If you train for short times like a week you might not do well. But if you trains longer like a month or more than that, you might get the hang of it and get a new leveled and colored belt ,This is called Kyu or Dan tests!
