The Okinawan Karate-do at UCSD (UCSD Karate Club) is both a Student Organization and a Recreation Class. Our purpose is to preserve traditional Okinawan Karate-do through teaching and practice. We strive to imbue in our students discipline, confidence, teamwork, and spirit. Our curriculum includes sparring (Kumite), forms (Kata), and weapons (Kobudo) as well as various self-defense techniques that create the core foundation of our karate training.
All students are welcome, regardless of prior training. Beginning students start with karate basics and build upon that as they advance in knowledge.
