It is physical-mental discipline, based on the use of all parts of the body, applied to self-defense. It is a sport originated in a Japanese martial art. In Karate, attack does not exist, and thus is conveyed the philosophy to the students: knowledge must not be used to attack, only as defense as a last resort. The purpose of Karate is personal betterment, both physical and spiritual. Prudence and humbleness are two concepts, taught with traditional methods. The system of training and competition of Karate includes Kumite (combats) and Katas (postures). These allow students to improve their visualization, concentration, aesthetic and artistic skills, through individual practice of postures. Tournaments include individual and group competitions.
