Clinical Trial Summary

Since ancient times, physical and sports activity has been recognized as bringing many health benefits. Descriptive and interventional studies on physical activity are developing, demonstrating physical and psychological benefits for patients with various diseases.

Physical activity is effective in improving self-esteem in the general population. Good self-esteem allows for better autonomy to manage a chronic illness.

The benefit of physical activity in patients living with HIV has been the subject of several studies, notably outside France, and seems to improve the quality of life.

We hypothesize that sport, especially karate kata, could improve self-esteem in patients living with HIV, and represent another non-drug aid, in patients living with HIV.
