University of Kent


This is the official University of Kent Karate Club! Our club trains primarily in Okinawan Shorin-Ryu karate, led by experienced instructors and supported by a number of other senior members from different styles such as Shotokan, Shito-Ryu Goju-Ryu and Wado-Ryu, meaning all karate-ka can come together and improve.

Whatever your interest in karate, whether it be practical self defence (goshin); practicing and developing techniques (kata & kumite); or increasing your general fitness, agility and power (through kihon); we'll have something for you. We also have a handful of National and International athletes so will be training sport Karate as well and will be running squad training sessions for our BUCS university nationals competitors (all levels welcome).

Training is supplemented by focused seminars with guest instructors, including those from the worldwide Jindokai federation, who have years of experience in traditional and competitive sport karate. Socials range from our belt bar crawl specials to martial art movie marathons - so get those crane kicks ready Daniel-san!
