What's the difference between traditional karate and so-called 'sport' karate?

For self-discovery and self-defence

Traditional karate is a martial art that originated in Okinawa, Japan. It is characterized by its use of punches, kicks, and strikes, as well as its focus on discipline, respect, and self-improvement.

The ultimate goal of traditional karate is to achieve a state of mental and physical harmony, and it is often practised as a form of self-defence or personal development.

For tournament

Sport karate, on the other hand, is a competitive version of karate that has been adapted for tournament play. It is characterized by its focus on speed, power, and technique, and it often involves sparring with protective gear.

In sport karate, points are awarded for successful strikes, kicks, and other techniques, and the goal is to score more points than one's opponent. Sport karate is often more fast-paced and action-packed than traditional karate, and it is typically practised for the purpose of competition rather than self-defence.
