Here is a list of 5 free websites to learn karate online. These websites provide comprehensive material to learn karate by watching videos and reading articles.
Karate, or Judo, or Martial arts has traditionally been a very famous sport all over the world. Movie Stars like Jackie Chan have made a big contribution in making the sport popular among people. However, there are a few notions attached to it that need to be rectified. Firstly, the popular perception is that karate is for professionals looking to make a career out of it. However, the physical benefits of the sport cannot be neglected & it can be treated as just another recreational activity to stay fit. Another common notion about karate is that it is designed only for males; the growing acceptance of karate among females due to interest & necessity weakens this stand as well. Thus, to wipe out these weakening perceptions and to make karate accessible to a much larger community, I have come up with the list of 5 free websites to learn karate online.
The 5 websites to learn karate online reviewed here are Karate Tips, Action Karate Online, All-Karate Online, Shoushu.com, and Dailymotion.
