Description from the packaging.

Are you ready for furious black belt action? Ready for a one on one match that's fought with 14 different moves, from the front punch to the spinning back kick? Learn the moves, fine tune your timing, and seek out the weaknesses in your opponents. But, that's only the beginning.

Then you must develop "nizu no kokoro," as the Japanese say, "mind like water." Your mind must be so composed that you respond instantly to any movement, any kick or blow. As in a still pond, when even a tiny pebble sends ripples to the farthest corners.

Next you must pass tests of skill and endurance, to advance between levels. Break bricks with your head, avoid batons and spears that are hurled at you.

You fight in eight international settings, including Sydney, Australia, Athens, New York City, and Mt. Fuji.

Fight against the computer, or take on one of your friends.

Block and retreat, or drive forward. As the blows rain in, your face will grimace with pain. At times you will be knocked to the mat. Can you survive? Can you prevail? Can you meet the challenge of World Karate Championship?

  • 14 True-to-life Karate moves.
  • Face tougher and tougher opponents, from White to Black Belt.
  • Even different facial expressions as you trade blows.
  • Fight in eight international settings.
  • Exciting one or two player action.
