History: Developed from ancient styles of Chinese kempo and Japanese martial arts, Karate has evolved into a multi-faceted modern art form for self defense, conditioning, competition, and even philosophy. Karate migrated to the United States in the mid 20th century when U.S. Soldiers learned its techniques while training in Japan. In the past few decades, countless Karate classes and schools have emerged in every state, emphasizing various elements of traditional Karate combined with an adapted American perspective. Still wildly popular with people of all ages and backgrounds, Karate is sure to remain a leading form of physical conditioning for many years to come.
