This video shows actual technique we learn in the dojo in traditional Karate - in "bunkai" or application. It's choreographed, of course, but conveys the message that Karate is about self-defense and having an arsenal of ideas to fall back on in case of emergency. Few of us will ever be in a street fight with 5 or more attackers. But any of us can face an attack coming out of the grocery store, the mall or even in our own homes. Get your daughters into a dojo. Join yourself. I was 47 when I first put on a gi. You don't have to be fit or thin to start - you just have to have a desire to work hard, learn and practice at your own pace and level.
