Karate is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline based on the coordinated use of body and mind to defend or attack. This ancient martial art promotes important values such as respect, self-discipline, self-control and humility. Practitioners are encouraged to follow a moral code and to apply their skills only in situations of necessity and self-defence.
The activity is conducted by a Ticino association with its own specialised monitors in cooperation with the Sport Service.
The class is suitable for all levels. The instructor will propose viable alternatives for any level.
