Karate as a martial art was cultivated on the Japanese island of Okinawa during the 19th century. After many years, the development of Karate as a self defense gained tremendous popularity, as the island’s Japanese government had prohibited the use of weapons. Because of this national policy, the self defense techniques were developed into a unique Okinawan martial art of Karate.
