There is Chinese Karate ya know.



...And there's Tang Soo Do, too...
The original word "karate" was written with characters meaning "Cathay (i.e., old China) hand", but this was changed to the euphonic "empty hand" during the days of Japanese nationalism in the 1930s. (In case anyone reading this didn't know.)
The Korean art of Tang Soo Do is the Korean pronounciation of the characters for "Cathay hand".
