Training Body and Mind: Karate is Coming to Kombat Arts

Kombat Arts Mississauga is introducing a new Karate/Kickboxing program for ages 4-12, starting April 5. Karate is a great opportunity for children to disconnect from their digital devices and, instead, connect to their peers and the world and develop their minds and confidence. Keep reading to learn more about the art of karate and its benefits, or check the bottom of the post to find the upcoming schedule for this program.

The Art of Goju-Ryu Karate-do

Goju-Ryu Karate-do was founded by Sensei Chojun Miyagi (1930) in Okinawa, Japan. Karate-do translates to “empty hand way” – a way of training where one uses the body for self-defence to mimic weaponry against an attacker. Goju-Ryu translates to “hard soft style.” There are many different forms of karate, but the hard soft style that is Goju-Ryu is special: it incorporates both closed hand (Go = hard) and open hand (Ju = soft) techniques. It is one of the most popular and internationally recognized forms of Karate-Do, next to Shotokan.

The Practical, Virtuous, and Spiritually Artistic Teachings of Karate

Practitioners of this form of karate at Kombat Arts Mississauga will learn the technical art of grappling, throwing, striking, kicking, takedown, and kata. It is an excellent way to condition one’s body and embody karate’s unique version of kickboxing into any other type of martial arts that one may practice. Karate is a martial art that is both practical, grounding, and artistic. The knowledge and history in this martial art are incredibly deep and profound. The virtues of Bushido are the creed by which we train: Justice, Mercy, Courage, Honour, Honesty, Respect, Loyalty, Self-Control. These virtues are especially represented in kata through symbolic and elegant performances. Kata forms are mesmerizing and spiritually enlightening sequences of pre-determined movement. Thus, they are an amazing way to get both exercise and meditation into your routine. Two of the most popular katas in the style of Goju are Sanchin (The Three Battles: Mind, Body and Spirit) and tensho (Rotating Palms).

Confidence and Culture

Karate not only boosts morale, but also generates confidence within oneself. Further, the student body acts as a team – many drills are partnered and synchronized. By working closely with other students, a dojo quickly establishes a kind and intimate environment for martial artists. As a classical martial art, there will also be a chance to embrace Okinawan culture and learn words/numbers/phrases in Japanese, thus expanding your cultural experience and knowledge without leaving Mississauga. The beauty and harmony that karate holds shines through the student. It is, overall a positive environment where spirit and power both flourish in all colours of the rainbow.
