Martial Arts Essay
Martial arts as we know it today many people use it the wrong way such us,throwing harm others, Hit the vulnerable, but people in the past they let martial arts tech them respect and how to deal with bad situation. Today many type of martial arts came out such us, karate, muaythi, taekwondo. Taekwondo and karate are not the same at all about 90% of Omani people think that there is no different between taekwondo and karate that’s way in this essay I going to explain the difference between taekwondo and karate.
Taekwondo fighting style it’s different from karate, taekwondo use 80% leg and 20% hands but karate uses 50-50 and if you ask what’s stronger karate or taekwondo? I well answer you with what’s stronger leg or hands? In this essay I well talk about three main ideas: the deference between taekwondo and karate, the challenge that you well face in each type of martial arts, the deference between taekwondo clothe and belts and karate.Taekwondo and karate became much more popular these days not like in the past people didn’t know taekwondo us we know it today they only know karate. Taekwondo is Korean martial arts that were invented in the 20th century. is a punching and kicking martial arts with much more focus on the kicks and taekwondo now is an Olympic sport.
Karate is an Okinawan martial art from Japan (reference). There are many kinds of Karate, and each of them has their differences. However, they are all punching and kicking arts.Some are more defensive while others emphasize offense.
In Taekwondo there is many type of kicks about twenty types of kicks and each kick has its own style and its own effect on human body but in karate they focus on the punching instead of kicking because they believe that hand can kill a man much more faster than a leg but we all know that’s kicking is much more stronger then punching and is stronger and in taekwondo if you don’t have flexibly you can do any type of taekwondo kicks but in karate you can because they don’t have high kicks that much.There is a lot of challenges on both side but the hardest challenge is in taekwondo because taekwondo requires flexibility in the foot because flexibility give you the ability to hit high kicks and a lot of taekwondo kicks is high. Karate challenges it’s not that hard because in karate there are not too high kicks; only a few karate kicks are high and the rest of it is low and bottom kicks. The challenge you will face in karate is the focus, you need to learn how to focus before you do any karate moves because the focus thing well help you to consecrate in order to ignore ny punches from your opponent in any combat, however all of martial arts experts know that taekwondo challenges is bigger and harder and more difficult then karate. But until now people that they don’t have any background about any martial arts they will say that karate its better then taekwondo because karate is much more popular and everybody knows it not like taekwondo, if you ask anyone about taekwondo they will say what is taekwondo?They wouldn’t know until you tell them it’s like karate and me us a taekwondo expert I don’t know how to tell the people about taekwondo until I show them any moves then they will start saying oh it’s like karate this other type of challenge in taekwondo people don’t take you serials.
Belts in any martial arts it’s like a definition about what you became now and in which level you are in and how much far you will go in the future. There is six main belts in taekwondo starts with white belts and follow it yellow, green, blue, red and its end with black.Karate belts starts with white belt and follows yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, brown, and us usually ends with black . black belt in each type of martial arts has 10 level and there’s something called a dan in black belt its mean a level and in each level you’ll face new and much more difficult challenges. there’s is only 5 people in earth that reach 9 Dan and only one reach 10 Dan and he died the day that he got reworded the 10 Dan black belt.Any type of martial arts in the world this days you can know them from their clothe but when you look at taekwondo clothes and karate clothes there is no big difference between them only one thing that makes you know that they are different that in taekwondo t shirt there is a black color on the very top of the t shirt until the bottom of it that black thing doesn’t exist in karate. In conclusion any type of martial arts it’s called white weapon hear in Oman if you used it you’ll get in a lot of trouble so be careful.
And taekwondo and karate are not the same pull that out of your mind.
