Karate is a martial art of Japanese origin that deals with attacks through evasive body movements and/or blocking, and counter attacks using kicks, punches and strikes. Joint locks, restraints and take downs are also used, but to a lesser extent. People variously practice it as a form of self defence, a way of keeping healthy and a sport.
