Karate is one of the worlds leading martial arts with over 60 million participants globally. Karate is an art form which can improve confidence, character, flexibility and general fitness, alongside skill. The team here at Birmingham is very successful with the men's team achieving a gold and a bronze medal in BUCS over the last two years, alongside individual successes. We look to build on this success in the coming years. The club offers great diversity with all aspects of traditional and sport karate accounted for across the different classes. The head coach has been teaching at the university for a number of years and is very experienced in traditional karate and kata. The club captain specialises in sport karate and the class offers the chance for people to compete and learn how to referee and judge the sport. We welcome all abilities and offer a great environment where everyone trains together to improve skill and form social bonds. We look forward to welcoming anyone who wants to join the friendly and successful club.
