Traditional Karate Atlanta

Traditional Karate Atlanta

Traditional Karate-do is a part of Budo, the Japanese martial art system. It is defined as a weaponless self-defense art against a single or multiple opponents using punching, striking, blocking, kicking and shifting techniques. The technical focus of training is the development of Todome-waza, the “finishing blow”. This concept is based on the notion that a competent practitioner can deliver a single blow (mental or physical) that instantly terminates an assailant’s intent to harm.
