Karate-Do is an art of hand-to-hand combat that develops your body and mind as well as your personality through physical training and a philosophy of life. The practice of karate favors the acquisition of new reflexes and a finer coordination, all elements of balance and self-confidence. Coming from an oriental tradition and philosophy, karate is more than a sport: it is a martial art, a quest for self-knowledge and a search for mastery, technical and mental perfection. Karate allows children to be active while learning to channel their energy, to develop concentration skills and reflexes and to coordinate their movements. Since 2017, karate has become an Olympic sport.
