Why practice karate?

The object of true karate practice is the perfection of oneself through the perfection of the art. The values of Karate to people in today's society are numerous, including the positive impact of exercise to both our physical and mental health. The practice of Karate tones the body, develops coordination, quickens reflexes, builds stamina, promotes relaxation and relieves stress.

Serious practice of Karate develops composure, a clearer thought process, deeper insight into one's mental capabilities, and more self-confidence. In this, karate is not an end, but a means to an end. Karate encourages proficiency and the keen coordination of mind and body. It is an activity in which advancing age is not a hindrance.
