Karate

Karate (空手) is a martial art developed in the Ryukyu Islands in what is now Okinawa, Japan. It was developed partially from the indigenous martial arts of Ryukyu Islands and from Chinese kenpo. Karate is a striking art using punching, kicking, knee strikes, elbow strikes and open hand techniques such as knife-hands, spear-hands, and palm-heel strikes. In some styles, grappling, throws, joint locks, restraints, and vital point strikes are also taught. A karate practitioner is called a karateka (空手家).

The style tought by coach Clive and the Goju Kai China branch team is called Goju kai (刚柔会) and emphasizes the physical and mental development of the student. The program aims to improve students’ physical fitness and self-defense abilities by developing their coordination, power, flexibility and stamina. Students practice traditional forms, kicking and punching drills that focus the mind on self-discipline, self-confidence and respect for others.

Coach Clive is a fourth-degree black belt in both Taekwondo and Karate. He is the representative of the International Karate-do Goju Kai Association in China. He is also the first Hapkido (Korean Aikido) black belt in mainland China. In August 2011 he set a Beijing record for taking part in 40 consecutive 2 minute bouts without defeat. Clive has been teaching these Martial Arts to both children and adults in Beijing since 2003.
