On the occasion of Children's Day and the 15th anniversary of Yamaguchi Karate in Hyderabad, Yamaguchi Karate International, along with the A P Olympic Association and the YMCA, Narayanaguda, is organizing these martial arts championships. The purpose is to create awareness of the martial arts, and to encourage children and elders.

All the Dojos (that's their lingo for martial art schools) from the city are welcome to participate in this mega event. The participants have to pay an amount of Rs.100 each towards each competition (sparring, Katas, and weapon application).

P S Around 58 centers across Hyderabad are teaching the Yamaguchi human art of self-defence. will soon bring you details of all these places.

For those interested in the history, Yamaguchi, the Japanese human art of self defence and weapon training, was originally started in the year 1905 by the grand master Yamaguchi. The animal art of defence, i.e. Kung-Fu, was famous then, but Yamaguchi felt that future generations would find the human art of self-defence more practical than the animal art, since the latter involved spending long periods of time in forests to observe animal behaviour and the way in which they defend themselves.

Having decided to teach his students the human art, he introduced sparring, Katas and weapon training in the curriculum. Sparring improves the fastness, sharpness and fighting techniques of a person, while Katas improves the concentration. Under weaponry training, the students are taught the use of nan-chaku, sword fighting, and halberd's circumvolution techniques.
