    What? "has no origin"? That's the craziest thing I've ever heard. Everything has an origin - or it wouldn't exist.

    Run a search on google.com for "karate origins" and you'll find quite a few pages that discuss Karate's origins.

    Comes from Okinawa, as a combination of the local fighting styles (called "te") and a couple forms of Kung fu (from China)

    actually, the 'te' means hand

    (Karate literally means 'empty hand' )
