PE 220 Karate and Character Development

3 Credits

The course examines the concept of wellness attainment, leading to a method and philosophy of directing one’s mind and body to experience holistic growth through physical, spiritual, and positive awareness. With study and practice, students are taught the physical and mental processes which support their learning growth and self-realization. They also gain a basic understanding of what karate is and is not. Through training exercises, students develop coordination, flexibility, muscle tone, strength, and confidence. This training also decreases stress, improves the cardiovascular system, and can stimulate weight loss. Karate-do goals are to foster the traits of courage, courtesy, integrity, humility, and self-control. Students explore this art, a mastery of its techniques, and a polishing of its virtues that cause one’s inner light to guide daily actions.
