Kata
Karate is a Japanese art. The word itself means ”empty hands”. It is both a physical and mental art that uses the human body without additional weapons.
It developed in the 1600’s in Okinawa due to martial law imposed by the government. The art has developed and improved as we have learned more about the human body. The student learns basic blocking, kicking, punching and striking techniques. These are further put into routines called “Kata”. The student also learns practical self defense in a safe manner with the instructor or another student. Paris Karate offers the most up to date training methods, allowing the student to develop to full potential
