A martial art that originated in Okinawa. It lost it's good reputation when it stretched out to the western world and started producing false techniques and used their teachings primarily for money. Karate is often misinterpeted for a martial art that is ineffective and homosexual, but when used in it's true form is actually one of the most deadliest martial arts

Jesse: Jim I don't wanna fight you, I'll probably end up killing you with my far superior karate skills.

a martial art style originating in okinawa. it lost its good rrep wen it became a mainstream object of money and advertising. although many do not teach it in the traditional way, sum styles of karate do teach elements such as grappling, rolling and falling(known to be from jujitsu), soft and circular techniques(from kung-fu) and pressure point attacks. the traditional style of te(original name for karate) included all of these.
