Karate for Kids Orleans

Karate is a dynamic martial art that will develop speed, anaerobic power and aerobic power through techniques and training. It is usually divided into three parts: kihon (basics), kata (forms or patterns of moves), and kumite (sparring). Techniques in Karate are characterized by deep, long stances that provide stability, enable powerful movements, and strengthen the legs.

Initially, strength and power are demonstrated instead of slower, more flowing motions. Those who progress to brown and black belt level develop a much more fluid style that incorporates grappling, throwing and some standing joint locking. Ju Jutsu like techniques and Kumite (fighting) techniques are practiced in kihon and kata and developed from basic to advanced levels with an opponent.
