Karate

The Karate style I study is called GoJu Ryu which means “hard-soft style” and comes from Okinawa.  The training at my dojo (school) consists of:

  • Kata – A series of punches, blocks, kicks and turns
  • Bunkai – Application of kata with a partner
  • Kumite – Self Defense Sets
  • Kobudo – Weapons Training

There are many Japanese words that are used to greet others respectfully, to count and to name the various katas, punches, blocks, etc.
