 Karate, 空手

Karate is a Japanese martial art of self-defense. 

空手は日本でできた護身術のひとつです。

It literally means "empty hand."

文字通り訳すと、”何ももたない手”の意味です。

To be sure, they fight with bare hands, but the expert's hands are a kind of weapon.

確かに素手で戦いますが、有段者の手は武器にも等しいです。

Karate, 空手

The basic techniques consist of striking, kicking, and defending. 

空手の技は突き、蹴り、防御から成っています。

They use elbows, knees, and feet other than hands.

手の他には肘、膝、足を使います。

 Karate, 空手

The karate performers are required to raise their character and spirituality.

空手にたずさわる者は人格と精神性を高めなければなりません。

The strongest practitioners don't show off their karate performance.

最強の武道家は自分の技をひけらかしたりしません。

The beginners wear a white belt while the practitioners with a qualification called dan usually wear a black belt.

空手の初心者は白帯を、有段者は黒帯を締めます。

The black belt indicates that white color has turned black because of hard training.

黒帯の意味は、まっさらな白帯が黒くなるまで練習したという意味です。

Karate came from China and was developed in Okinawa. 

空手は中国から沖縄に伝わり、独自の発展を遂げました。

Now karate attracts a lot of fans all over the world and is chosen as a game of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic.

空手は世界中に愛好家がいます。2020年の東京オリンピックの競技にも選ばれました。

My family spent months planning to squeeze Kyoto, Nara and Osaka it to 2 days, with Misaki’s help we made that happen. He was kind, informative, organized and a pleasure to talk and walk with. I’d love to spend a month with him and his depth of knowledge. He was excellent at making things fun. He kept my children (11-20yrs) involved and engaged.
