Karate | uOttawa Gee-Gees


Karate practice is divided into three categories: KIHON (basic blocks, punches, kicks and stances), KATA (pre-arranged forms simulating combat situations), and KUMITE (sparring). As the student progresses technically, they progress physically and his/her practice demands greater stamina. At this stage, they become involved with more intricate and difficult kata and more dynamic forms of kumite.
