About

The University of Plymouth Karate club is the longest running martial art club - spanning over 25 years. We welcome all levels from complete beginner, to Black Belts. Training is every Tuesday & Thursdays 8pm-10pm, and Sunday's 1-3pm; and is run by Sensei Richard House (3rd Dan, Wado-Ryu, IWF registered) and Francesco Cecconi Piccarozzi (1st Dan, Shotokan). All styles of karate are welcome to join, as we have members who have trained in Kyokushin, Shotokan, Shikukai, Goju Ryu etc. The first two sessions are completely free so come along, try it out - or simply watch, for those reluctant to join in.

Socials

The socials we arrange have great emphasis on bringing the club together outside of the dojo. Events include the typical drinking nights (with the infamous 'drink yourself to black belt' social); as well as non drinking socials such as: movie nights, bowling and club meals, to cater for everyone.

Events

We host gradings multiple times per year for all levels, giving you something to work toward/aim for. Transferring your grade from an old club/style is a possibility with proof of grade. Furthermore, competing in BUCS is an option with enough interest. As a club, we are always looking at involving ourselves in other national tournaments.
