Welcome to the University of Warwick Shotokan Karate Club

 

WHAT?

Karate is a form of self defence, literally meaning "empty hand" which symbolizes that its practitioners (Karateka) are unarmed but will use hands and feet for blocking and striking. Our sessions cover a whole range of Kihon (basics), Kumite (sparring), Kata (technical form) and self-defence. This martial art is especially for you if you wish to build on your mental and physical fitness, and increase your self confidence and awareness. 

WHEN + WHERE?

There are 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. Our training times are:

Monday: 20:00-21:30 Combat Room 

Tuesday: 20.30-22.00 Combat Room 

Thursday: 19:00-20:30 Multi Purpose Room

Saturday: 14:00-16:00 Combat Room (Casual Session)

WHO?

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.
