History of the Karate Martial Art?

Karate’s origin is generally traced back to Okinawa, an island south of mainland Japan. 

The exact timeline is a bit hazy, but most experts believe it developed around the 17th century. There are different theories about how it came to be:

  • Okinawan indigenous martial arts: Some believe karate stemmed from older Okinawan fighting styles called “te” (hand) or “ti” (hand).
  • Chinese influence: Okinawa has a long history of trade with China, and some karate techniques likely share roots with Chinese martial arts.

Over time, these influences mixed and evolved into karate. 

Early karate was likely used for self-defense, as weapons were banned in Okinawa during some periods.

In the early 20th century, Gichin Funakoshi introduced karate to mainland Japan, where it gained wider popularity.
