Karate was created with a merging of kung fu and Okinawa wrestling.Kung fu, which is Chinese, features circular movements, as well as pressure point techniques and styles based around the movements of animals. Karate, on the other hand, and uses more linear techniques designed to finish a fight with one blow.Cultural issues and the often-contentious history between China and Japan are also wrapped up in the two terms.To amateurs and movie goers, the two martial arts are seen as being the same, but someone with a bit of understanding can easily differentiate the two.The 2010 remake of The Karate Kid acknowledges the differences the mother asks the kid if he likes his karate class, his response: "It's not karate, Mom."
