Karate is not only a means of self-defense; it is also a sport and philosophy. This book examines each of these aspects and explains why educators and parents are becoming interested in karate. While showing how karate can change the lives of those who practice it--giving them health, self-confidence, and both physical and mental discipline--the book demonstrates convincingly the role that karate could play in reducing crime and delinquency on our streets.
