"There is No First Attack in Karate" Gichin Funakoshi
There is more to Karate than physical techniques, at its foundation is a tradition of spiritual and physical development and as Master Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan Karate said: "the ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participation". Karate training builds self-discipline, suppleness, coordination, the speed of reaction, overall fitness, stamina and a sense of inner calm. It is also highly enjoyable!
