Well I've never seen a fat karate master...

I have. Loads of them. It will help with your fitness but doing it once a week wont get you fit. Train hard everyday and you'll get fit. But that applies to any sport.
I used to do Judo

I reckon it's a bit different though

You probably will lose some weight. You'll also gain quite a bit of... control I guess over your reflexes.

Instead of flinching you will react, if that makes sense. But that's after a long while of it.

I really loved it... until they start making you learn all those ridiculously long sequences of moves. What is it, katas?
Ever wonder what rock would have sounded like in 2010 if grunge hadn't made it cool to be stupid?

It doesn't really build muscle too much, but it will definitely increase fitness.

I take Isshinryu Karate. It will help your fitness, especially if you go very often. And yeah, katas suck. At least the first ones do, then they get cool names, like Naihanchi and Wansu,
When all else fails, ask the pit.
Karates awsome man. It's not fun if your not doing as good as you can. Try real real hard and push your self and try sweating more than anyone else in your whole class. It gets AMAZINGLY fun in about 2 years. Just make sure you don't go to shotokan karate, that's a waste of space and time.
