Is karate effective in Self-Defence ?
Yes. Karate JKA is the ultimate in unarmed self-defence. It is designed to disable with one move; it has techniques against all forms of attack and has been developed through centuries of harsh experience for modern day use. Most importantly, it trains the mental and emotional skills of combat, as well as the physical. Strength and size are not important in Karate, although strength is one of the required qualities, It is equally augmented by relying on technique, speed and co-ordination. Karate teaches you how to avoid possible confrontations - it is far better to de-fuse or to avoid a dangerous situation than to confront it.But if it cannot be avoided then karate teaches the techniques to finish the situation with one finshing blow!!.
