Karate

Karate is a martial art that uses empty handed weaponless techniques such as punching and kicking to overcome the opponent. A KARATE instructor with the Skill Development Centre (SDC), Shihabudeen, has been awarded the Dan Black Belt by Japan Shotokan Karate Association (JSKA). With this, the SDC will be the only authorised karate training centre in Qatar to award the JSKA certi?cate. Announcing this at a press conference on Wednesday, SDC Director PN Baburajan said, “Students trained by Shihabudeen have performed well in many platforms set by the Qatar Karate Federation. The recognition gained by the SDC through Shihabudeen will not only be a credit for our institution but offer opportunity for large number of Karate students to be familiar with the new style of karate.” The award was given to Shihabudeen by Abe Keigo, founder and chief of JSKA, during their annual training camp held in Kerala recently. Apart from Shihabudeen, a number of other well experienced trainers from Sri Lanka, Oman and the UAE had participated in the camp. Speaking on occasion, Baburajan said that a large number of students enrol in karate training institutes in Qatar to learn one of the world’s most famous martial arts. “The support given by the Qatar Karate Federation has also been an inspiration for these students,” Baburajan pointed out. Shihabudeen said that students in Qatar would get opportunity to enjoy different Japanese karate techniques which had hitherto been hard to practice. “This achievement will inspire students to join with the SDC for higher level training to get internationally acclaimed certifications,” he said. Apart from karate, the SDC also offers courses in dance, music and painting.
