Information for Beginners

Congratulations on making your grades and welcome to Cambridge. Cambridge University Karate Club is one of the biggest, most active, and most diverse sports clubs in Cambridge — but don't just take our word for it. Have a look around the website — the red links above will get you started. The club has won the Varsity match for eleven years in succession, and has had members competing at international level.

The club welcomes new members throughout the year, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned karateka. If you have none or little experience with karate and martial arts we invite you to join any of our Wednesday or Sunday sessions. You can find the current training rota here.

Email us if you want to get in touch or ask any questions about CUKC. Alternatively, turn up at one of our training sessions. You can find details of these by using the 'Training' tab at the top of the page.

Cambridge awards 'blues' for sportsmen/women whose performance meets certain criteria. The criteria for karate are given on this page.
