Shorin Ken Karate-do – Most experts agree that the art of Karate (empty hand) can trace its origins back to the late 12th century, when elements of early Chinese empty handed fighting systems were introduced to Okinawa from Chinese cultural immigrants. The Okinawans developed a common fighting system known as Te (hand), which would continue to be developed and refined through war and private practice over the next 4 centuries.
