Solebury Club Karate

“It’s not just an art, it’s an attitude”

The word karate-do is made up of three Japanese characters. Their literal meaning is “Way of the Empty Hands.” Karate is a martial art of empty handed self-defense; students learn to use unarmed body parts, such as hands and feet, to ward off attackers!

“The world of karate cannot be compared to any other sport or physical exercise. Karate, developing the whole body and mind, can be experienced by anyone. Since karate offers self-defense, character development, physical exercise, a historical art and a sport, anyone of any age and any fitness level can train in the way of karate.”
