Karate is a martial art developed under the influence of Chinese martial arts traditions. Karate is predominantly a striking art using punching, kicking, knee strikes, elbow strikes and open-hand techniques such as knife-hands, spear-hands, and palm-heel strikes. Historically, and in some modern styles, grappling, throws, joint locks, restraints, and vital-point strikes are also taught. Karate can be practiced as an art, self defense or as a specific combat sport.
