The sessions are taken by club founder and senior instructor from the KUGB, Sensei Frankie Heydari. He has practiced karate throughout his life and has a huge amount of expertise and knowledge about karate, so we are very lucky at this club to have such a great instructor.
There are usually four training sessions per week and one grading per term where the members are examined on a series of kicks, punches and blocks of varying levels of difficulty and when successful are awarded new belts. Due to COVID-19, we have had to reduce our training frequency, our training timetable is below:
Monday: 19:30-21:30 - Combat Room
Tuesday: 19:30-21:30 - Combat Room
Saturday: 11:00-13:00 - Combat room (Casual training or Individual Practice)
Under normal circumstances there would be opportunities to compete in Kata and Kumite categories at KUGB, BUCS and Varsity events. Members do not have to enter competitions but are encouraged to as they can be fantasic opportunities to learn and something to work towards.
We host socials regularly, including: club meals, bowling, laser tag and events in collaboration with WUMATS (Warwick Uni Martial Arts and Target Sports)
