Abstract provided by Publisher
The basic motivating factor of Polish karate in its pro-health effect – both for parents and children/youth.
Like other martial arts, karate offers the trainees more than traditional sports do: the awareness of being part of a team, cultura background, symbols and philosophic fundamentals. At each stage of karate training, the trainee's evolution and future achievements are clearly visible.
In Poland, modern karate is not only a sport but also a lifestyle (and another source of income for trainers). It has evolved – also in mass culture -to become the sport practiced on a mass scale.
