Larger karate schools typically cater to a wide range of students.
They include elements of exercise, relaxation and self-defense. The goal of karate is not necessarily to progress through the different kyus; if a karateka gets what he or she needs from the experience, then the training is a success. But most karatekas end up advancing to higher levels if they come to class regularly. According to Kathy Olevsky , a sixth-degree black belt and an instructor at Karate International of Raleigh , a karateka's rate of progress depends on a number of factors.

A karateka who comes to class two or three times a week can progress to green belt roughly halfway to black belt in four months. After this point, Olevsky says, it takes longer to advance. A strong athlete who comes to class four or five times a week might make it to first-dan black belt in 18 months. But for the average student, it takes at least three years. Karate schools may combine elements from multiple martial art forms. Robert Olevsky , the head instructor at Karate International, is not only a ninth-degree black belt in karate, but also a second-degree black belt in judo , a sixth-degree black belt in jujutso and a first-degree black belt in kendo.
He incorporates throwing techniques and other combat moves from these disciplines into his instruction of karate.

Among other things, these supplementary skills improve a karateka's self-defense ability. Karate schools may also teach weapons techniques, even though this is not a traditional element of karate. In martial arts, students learn to use weapons as extensions of their own body. They channel their power into external equipment the same way they channel power to their fist or foot.

A number of traditional martial arts weapons were originally developed out of everyday farm and household equipment. When the ruling class banned swords and other weapons, the peasants learned to use these everyday objects for defense. The nunchaku , for example, evolved from a threshing tool used in grain harvesting. Some karate schools also teach how to use improvised weapons -- such as brooms and telephones -- to fight off an unexpected attack.
If you're looking for a karate school, it pays to shop around.
