Where is karate from?

Japan
China
Ryukyu Kingdom
Taiwan
Karate de­vel­oped from the in­dige­nous martial arts of Ryukyu Islands (today Japane­se) under the in­flu­ence of Chinese martial arts. The Ryukyu Kingdom was an in­de­pen­dent kingdom from the 15th to 19th century, and despite its small size, the kingdom played a central role in the maritime trade networks of medieval East Asia. Until the 19th century, it has had much more in common with China, than with Japan.
