UCC Karate kicks off our 2018/19 semester

UCC karate club is all set for an exciting and zen-filled 2018/19 year, with the club returning to regular training 18:00 in Hall 1 of the Mardyke Arena. This year features a number of events, including trips to compete in two intervarsity competitions, and a dedicated six week course for absolute beginners.

As well as competing on the national stage, UCCKC club places a strong emphasis of academic-life balance and building a vibrant club community. Our club caters for teaching karate at all levels, with beginners, intermediates and seniors training separately.

With this in mind, a six week course in karate for absolute beginners kicks off on Tuesday September 18th (18:00 hrs in Hall 1). This round of classes, held once a week, are relatively informal in comparison to the more senior classes, and offer students the perfect opportunity to try out and master the basic techniques which will serve you for years to come. There we teach you some really basic but effective self-defence tricks, introduce you to the karate-way of training, and give you a bit of zen downtime from your hectic college schedule.

For the rest of us, training begins tonight (Tuesday 11th September). New members are always welcome to join the club. In a nutshell, if you want to train, drop in and train away with us!! – Tuesdays & Thursdays, 18:00-19:30 hrs, Hall 1, Mardyke Arena.
