Handi-capable Karate was created on the basis that we believe that no person should be denied the beauty of training in the martial arts. We believe that Master Gichin Funakoshi said it the best, “The ultimate aim of the art of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the characters of its participants.”
Angry with the blockage that is present in the Indian Boxing Federation, the International Boxing Association has ended the IBF from its crease uttering that the latest set of office bearers are spoiling the status, icon and importance of the sport.
The AIBA whispered that he cannot take a correct judgment on how to hold the India’s issue after receiving the disagreeing interactions from different stakeholders. The world body said in its current note that it is very sad to say that the International Boxing Association executive committee has made up their minds to end any bureaucrat relationship with its current member IABF after a wide assessment and estimation of all affairs neighboring the sport of boxing in India. Unless the new set of official take charge after new elections the IBF is not likely to be re-recognized, the AIBA president Ching Kuo Wu said.
On December 6 2012, the IBF was suspended conditionally. After this, the AIBA has not accepted any bureaucrat actions and also for 16 months it didn’t supported the Indian officials. Nevertheless the AIBA agreed to review the situation when the IOA Indian Olympic association has its deferment raised by the IOC.
However prior and post to IOA elections and raising of suspension, AIBA received diverse asserts from several groups of people regarding the way how boxing was managed in India and it became completely impracticable for AIBA to make correct judgment regarding the National Federations Affairs in India.
It is understood that the game of boxing will be on track if it would be left into the hands of trustful person who like boxing and provide them with the chance of submitting applications for the establishments of new National Federation. The AIBA said that they will not bear any government or sports authority interfering in this process.
Karate is a widely popular martial arts form that was developed in the Ryukyu islands of Okinawa, Japan. It was heavily inspired from the already present martial art forms of the Ryukyu islands in the 12th century. Thus karate relies heavily on the use of hands or Te; just like the native Okinawan martial art is called. This was blended with striking styles from the Chinese Kenpo to give birth to, what we today know as the Okinawan form of Karate. It is mainly considered a striking art which includes kicks, punches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, knife-hands, palm heel strikes, grappling, joint locks and vital point strikes among the many more tactics.
Now it is said, that the Okinawan karate that was heavily derived from the indigenous striking art forms of the Ryukyu islands can be divided into three distinct styles. The more offensive system, relying on strong and bold techniques influenced by Kenpo, known as Shuri-te. This is a name given to a particular form of martial arts, characterised by those moves that developed before the second world war in and around Shuri, then the capital of the Ryukyu kingdom. The successive styles of Shuri-te include the Shotokai, Shotokan-ryu, Shito-ryu, Wado-ryu etc.
The softer techniques along with strong breath control fall under Naha-te. Naha-te derives heavily from the Fujian White Crane systems and developed in the port town of Naha. Kanryo Higaonama is considered the father of the Naha-te form of karate. This is more of a defensive system that has extensive grappling, locks, throws and other form of physical restraints. Now combining both the hard and soft techniques of Kenpo gave rise to Tomari-te. This is the traditional martial arts form that originated in the village of Tomari, Okinawa. This was based on an underground fighting style. Contrary to popular notion, it is not a fighting style but a tradition.
