Karate is a very powerful martial art. I have been practicing it since my childhood days when I was just learning how to walk and run around.
My father taught me the basics of karate at the age of 7 years old, which later became my favorite subject ever after that.
I am sure many of you are wondering why I would write such a thing. Well, I think it is because there are so many things that could be better explained in this world today.
There are so much confusion in the world nowadays, especially with all the news and rumors going around. So if anyone can give us some simple advice or clear up any misconceptions about karate, then please do so because without it we will not get anywhere in our lives.
I am writing this because I have faced many problems in my life because I didn’t know anything about karate. Karate is an important thing that everyone should know about because without it, you will be lost and won’t know how to defend yourself at all.
I think this is a very good place to give some advice that can help anyone who wants to learn karate but doesn’t really know where to start.
