A karate class typically begins with a warm-up that includes stretching and cardio exercises to prepare the body for training. Once warmed up, students will move on to practicing basic techniques such as strikes, kicks, and blocks, often in pairs with a partner.

The bulk of the class is usually spent practicing kata, a series of choreographed movements that simulate a self-defense scenario. Kata practice helps students develop coordination, balance, and technique while learning how to apply karate moves in a real-life situation.

Throughout the class, the instructor will provide feedback and corrections to help students improve their technique. They may also introduce new techniques or concepts to challenge and expand the students' knowledge.

Overall, a karate class is a challenging and rewarding experience that can help students develop physical fitness, self-defense skills, and personal growth.
