Of course not! Very few Asians know karate. First of all, Asia comprises half of the population of the world. Karate originated on a tiny island in the Pacific, influenced by Chinese and Japanese martial arts.
Karate as we know it today originated on Okinawa, an island kingdom that is now a part of Japan. The natives there had an art called Tegumi - a sort of wrestling, that they combined with White Crane Kung Fu to create karate.
The early 20th century introduced a few new types of karate to the world. The first Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio was opened in the early 1920s. Sambo was introduced in 1938. Even the term "karate" was not officially recognized until 1935.

Karate first came to America through immigrants from Japan and Okinawa. The first recorded exhibition was in 1932 in Hawaii. Servicemen coming back after World War 2 brought knowledge of the art and helped spread the art.
The beginnings of karate are somewhat ambiguous. However, the art was developed as an empty-handed system in Okinawa during the time when it was forbidden to carry weapons. Modern karate is said to have been born during the early 20th century, specifically in 1922 when karate master, Gichin Funakoshi (founder of Shotokan style), brought karate to Japan from Okinawa and orchestrated the first public karate demonstration. From this point, karate spread to the rest of the world, becoming very popular.
