Karate's Origin And History by khanabrar: 9:12am On May 04
Karate is a Japanese martial arts style that originated 200 years ago in the kingdom of Ryukyu. However, its roots back thousands of years. Karate was influenced by the Chinese martial arts Kung Fu when the Japanese samurai rulers imposed a ban on the weapons. The founder of Shotokan Karate, Gichin Funakoshi is credited for introducing and establishing karate in Japan. Gichin Funakoshi was a student of both Asato Ankō and Itosu Ankō who had worked to introduce karate to the Okinawa region in Japan. Due to the spread of karate in Japan, it annexed Okinawa islands from the US administrative control in 1872. Karate consists of Kihon, Kata, and Kumite.
