Karate is a martial art that focuses on the application of strikes using the hands and feet. It originated in Japan and has become quite popular throught the world especially in the United States. There are many styles of karate but the one most widely practiced outside of Japan is Shotokan. Training in karate is normally divided into three sections, from basic to kata which is sparring with imaginary opponents to kumite, which is sparring done with an opponent. Students are then graded and must pass before proceeding to the next level, There are ten gradings and on average it takes a dedicated Shotokan karate student four years to achieve his or her black belt.
