This acclaimed martial art originates from Okinawa in Japan and became increasingly popular internationally after being immortalised in many films in the second half of the 20th century. Across the world today, there are an estimated 100 million practitioners of karate in the world, which is almost twice the population of England.
All exercises involve a risk of injury
Karate is one of the most efficient forms of exercise that people can do. When not performed correctly or without the supervision of an experienced, trained supervisor, however, karate participants can suffer injuries like slips and trips, bruises, fractures, or even broken bones.
Even in the safest environments, accidents and injuries like slips, trips or falls can happen completely out of the blue. If you have suffered from a long-term joint injury, you may be able to get repetitive strain injury compensation after making a repetitive strain injury claim.
Have you suffered an injury that was not your fault?
It is also important to be aware that many people in the UK who have suffered non-fault injuries in other scenarios, such as accidents at work, can also make a claim for compensation, as can victims injured in a road traffic accident or other incidents that were the fault of someone else.
