Welcome to UEA Karate 2021/22
UEA Karate is a mixed style karate club with beginners all the way up to Nidan level. Karate is a martial art that has spanned over hundreds of years and is practiced worldwide. We focus on self-defence and competition karate alongside more traditional styles. We welcome all styles and all abilities.
We encourage anybody who is interested in joining us to attend a FREE "give-it-a-go" session at the start of the year. This years sessions are:
- Tuesday 28th Sept 18:00-20:00
- Saturday 2nd Oct 12:00-15:00
- Tuesday 5th Oct 18:00-20:00
- Saturday 9th Oct 12:00-15:00
All tasters and future training will be held in the Congregation Hall 01.19.
These sessions are designed to allow you to meet other members and decide if karate is for you. You MUST book a free ticket for the taster sessions which will be made available soon.
Training sessions take place twice a week:
- Tuesday 18:00-20:00
- Saturday 12:00-15:00
Instructor: Sam (Nidan, Qualified Karate Coach)
All Karate sessions take place in the Congregation Hall 01.19.
Throughout the year we will also be hosting guest instructors from outside clubs. Details of these events will be available on the Facebook page.
We encourage you to check the Facebook page before attending each session as some events may impact training times. All information regarding timetable changes will be provided this way.
Health and Safety
All members must purchase a martial arts license when training with UEA Karate. This is a uniform measure across any reputable martial arts club nationwide. A martial arts license protects you in the event of you incurring an injury or to you causing one in self-defence outside of a dojo. Licenses from previous clubs that are still in date are accepted. If you are a new member the price for a year’s licence through KUGB is £27, you can apply for a licence by clicking here.
Licenses will be checked after the first month of training, past this time any members without licenses will be turned away as a matter of health and safety. Please make sure you have one!
To keep up to date with our socials make sure to check our Facebook and Instagram. If you have any ideas for the year make sure to contact Hayley, your social secretary.
In previous years we have had one social every week & our biggest hits were our Halloween martial arts bar crawl & I do Martial Arts Get Me Out Of Here social!
UEA Karate competes at the British Universities and Colleges Sport every year in February. In 2020 we received 2 medals and each year we aim to add at least one more! All members are encouraged to attend however competition spaces are limited so where positions are over-subscribed members will have to compete to get the spot.
Unfortunately, BUCS was currently cancelled for 2021 due to COVID-19 but we are very excited for to get back to competing this year!
