Probably the most famous and recognisable style, Karate utilises the whole body and its ability to twist and turn as self defence. For example, techniques may vary from punches to elbow strikes to kicks with the feet and can be performed as art, sport or self-defence. Benefits of karate include: fitness, flexibility, mobility, well-being, concentration and self-control, confidence, and stress reduction and offers extraordinary fitness & health benefits, particularly for people in their 40's and 50's.
