How did karate began?

I actually have to write an essay on that so I'm just going to put part of the essay I made here. It should answer your question.Hundreds of years ago, on the island of Okinawa, a form of martial arts, known today as karate, was developing. Okinawa was one of the small islands that surrounded Japan and being at the crossroad of most trades, it was often a resting spot. Anyway, back to karate. As karate is made up of two Japanese characters 'kara'(空) and 'te'(手), which literally translates into English as 'empty hands.' However, it did not always have that name. Originally, karate was known as 'Kenpo,' which meant 'First Law' in Chinese. When karate came from China to Okinawa, the 'te' was added causing it to mean 'Hands of China.' Finally, in 1923, the Okinawans turned the Chinese characters into Japanese ones making the translation 'Empty Hands.' This brought an even deeper meaning to karate that the spiritual overcomes the physical. In 1916, two of the best from Okinawa, (Kenwa Mabuni and Gigen Funakoshi) introduced karate to Japan in order to promote karate as a sport.
