However intimate master and pupil may be outside the Dojo, inside the instructor is always called SENSEI and treated with utmost respect. If for whatever reason, the pupil loses respect for his master, he must immediately find another master. Punctuality at all times is essential.

HISTORY OF KARATE
the Islands Loochoo(now Okinawan Islands of Japan), The Karate Originated ainpeculiar bareofhand and bare feet striking technique(athis was inhabitants had called Tei which means hand. During the Tang dynasty of China, Kenpo form of boxing) was introduced to Loochoo where elements were accepted and the resulting form was called To-Dei(literally Tang hand) n 1406 the King of Loochoo proclaimed peaceful country and his Icitizens to carry weapons which madeovera time everprotectpopular,forbadefrom To-Dei more eventually some warriors were allowed to re-arm to the country possible invasion. n 1609 the country was invaded Satsuma Iwho conquered the and practising by the Japanese Shimazu Daimyo ofRyukyuan Ryukyuan Islands (formally Loochoo), He then prohibited the carrying of weapons any martial arts by its people. The warriors who fought against the Shimazu clan were brave and skilled in the practice of ToDei, most were also members of the Shizoku (Samurai class). art of weaponless was first The Okinawa Kenpo ofdefence or Ryukyuintroduced to the people of Japan in 1922 as To-Dei Karate-Jutsu. arts master Hironori Otsuka studied this great interest Japanese martialcombined it with advancedancient form of form withcombat Wado and eventually another unarmed called Jujitsu to introduce in 1934 the combat Wado-Ryu Karate-Do. Means way of peace and harmony, Ryu means style and Karate-Do means the way of the empty hand (weaponless defence).

KARATE-DO
The practice of Karate is to develop and maintain health and strength, both physical and mental, to teach good manners, self discipline and mutual respect between Karate-Ka and others. It also encourages decency and respect between all members of society. Karate is endless, because every technique can always be improved upon. This inculcates modesty and a strong intellectual stature. Except in the defence of life or limb, karate techniques must never be used outside the dojo, because they can be extremely dangerous.

KATA
Kata are a combination of basic Karate techniques arranged in a stream of consecutive body movements, consisting of various attacking and defending techniques, using both both hands and feet, against a number of imaginary opponents, covering attacks from every possible direction. This demands good balance and posture, correct stances, speed, strong focus, swift and accurate perception and correct breathing. Wado Ryu Kata are generally smaller than those of other styles, unnecessary movements should not be performed in Wado Ryu Kata. The movements should be performed in the shortest possible way, when the movements are smaller, it becomes more difficult to accelerate and focus, so you would need more skill to perform them effectively. In Budo it has always been said that it is very important to learn from the old masters who perform techniques very rationally and do not expend energy uselessly, instead we have to reach as high a energy as possible at the moment the attack reaches the opponent, actually all we have to do is concentrate the energy at the very moment of contact. This energy concentration is called Kime (focusing) and is very important in all aspects of Karate. for this reason as in all aspects of Karate relaxation immediately before and after a movement is essential to good technique. Excerpts taken from Karate Kata of Wado Ryu Shingo Ohgami.

Kata is very important in Karate training and is considered to be the Life and Soul of Karate-Do, having been practiced and developed for centuries by literally millions of Karate-Ka Kata is also said to be the expression of both mental culture and human nature.

KIHON-GUMITE (basic fighting)


In these pair work exercises, attacks must be executed with accuracy and meaning. Each punch and each kick must be intended to hit its target. In Kihon-Gumite, we learn TaiSabaki, which means body shift, consisting of Ten-I(foot work), Ten-Tai(body turning) and Ten-Gi(arm blocking) techniques, used in conjunction with each other. Attacker Move closer to the defender with toes to get correct distance to attack, but without moving body. (Hidari Hanmi Gamae - HHG, Migi Hanmi Gamae - MHG). Attacker:

YAKUSOKU GUMITE (pre-arranged fighting)


Yakusoku-Gumite consists of blocks, evasions or sweeps, followed by counter blows, and is carried out as pair work. The counter-blows are a mixture of punches and kicks, and foot sweep is also used. Whether in attack, defence or in counter-attack, the Karate-Ka must be ambidextrous. Therefore, attacks and defence must be practiced left-handed, right-handed, left-footed and right-footed. Throughout, the word counter means pre-emptive action to forestall an attack. In all pair work, the exercises are ineffective unless the attacks are executed with both accuracy and meaning, because otherwise the defender cannot defend properly. Each punch(tsuki) and each kick(keri) must be intended to hit its target, but defender must control his/her techniques.

JIYU-GUMITE (free fighting)


In Jiyu-Gumite, there are neither no rules nor any prohibited techniques, nor can protectors be worn. Any techniques can be used to make full contact on the opponent on any part of his body, especially to the vital points or pressure points, including Sunegeri (shin kicks), Kingeri (groin kicks), Barate-Uchi (open backhand techniques) to the face, any throwing techniques, arm locks and strangle holds, until the opponent surrenders. Therefore for safety, free-fighting must always be conducted under the supervision of a qualified Blackbelt referee. However at Kyu grading, Examiners only look for effective attacking and defending techniques.

Fighting Strategy
Includes forestalling the opponent. there are three principal methods, known as SEN. These are: 1. 2. Sen-te, Ken-no-sen (first attack). this is to attack the opponent before he has prepared for the attack. Go-Sen-No-Te, Go-No-Sen, or Tai-No-Sen (Counter attack) After the attacker has started his attack, Defender (with block, if necessary) strikes Attacker before he has struck. Sen-Sen-No-Sen-Te, Tai-Tai-No-Sen (Anticipatory attack)this is to attack the opponent after he has prepared his attack, but has not yet carried it out.
