Karate equipment

Throughout the years, Karate has remained consistent in its popularity as a martial art. Derived in Japan, it spread worldwide and became one of the most renowned striking skillsets in the world in the 60s and 70s. Though there are varying styles from full contact to non-combative, one of the major reasons it has large student uptakes year on year is because it can be practiced by anyone. You need very little - just a karate uniform and the enthusiasm to start with - and you can find somewhere to train in every town across the UK. More and more we are seeing karatekas feature in high level, full contact combat sports such as K-1 style kickboxing and mixed martial arts. At the top level, we've seen the likes of Lyoto Machida and Gunnar Nelson utilise their karate in the Octagon. It has a great structure for building discipline and technique in youngsters, so enrolling your children today could lead the way to the fighting superstars of tomorrow.
