  • Description

    A number of taxi drivers in Glasgow, Scotland, have taken up karate so that they can protect themselves if attacked.

    They are concerned about the number of attacks made , usually at night, on drivers as they go about their business in the Glasgow area.

    One driver said there were attacks almost every night on taxi drivers, and he himself had twice been beaten up.

    Karate is a form of unarmed combat which developed on the island of Okinawa some 300 years ago when the local people were banned from possessing weapons. They developed a deadly form of self-defence, using their hands, feet, elbows and knuckles which are toughened by special training.
