heart rate?: If your resting heart rate is between 60 and 100 and you otherwise feel okay with exercise, i don't see where there would be any harm performing karate while under treatment for an overactive thyroid. If you have access to a thyroid stimulating hormone level (TSH) and its normal, there would be absolutely no issue at all but even if it's off, you're ok if you feel ok.
