ABSTRACT

Wheelchair karate is a system of sport rehabilitation, which is specific of Karatherapy created to enhance this integration. It provides three aspects that I consider fundamental: Performance of a martial arts activity with the opportunity to experience the great incentive provided by the effort and concentration expended to progress from one degree to another. Increase in psychomotor abilities, vital capacity, relaxation and muscle development of the entire upper body. An excellent way of rehabilitation that is always better accepted than conventional rehabilitation. The common nexus in the practice of this sport is the wheelchair.
