Taekwondo and Karate Club

Join our club for all your martial arts needs, learn self defence and compete

Coronavirus update

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we've had to make some changes. For the most up to date information about training and memberships please get in touch with us through our social media accounts.

Typically our martial arts forms do not mix although there are similarities but we've joined forces, because we're stronger together. For those new to martial arts Taekwondo is typically characterised by high kicks, spinning kicks and point scoring kicks above waist height. It's been an Olympic sport since 2000 and has gone from strength to strength. Karate has similarities in that it uses kicks, but also includes knee strikes, punching and elbow strikes to earn points. Karate was due to make it's debut as an Olympic sport in 2020, but will have to wait.

Although you may think we're all about kicking and punching, we're a friendly club, dedicated and focussed and the perfect club to learn a new skill or take your training to the next level. We do however, like kicking and punching too we just do it in a friendly, inclusive welcoming way.

If you are interested in joining our sports club, you will need to register your interest. Some of our clubs have membership caps, and we want to get as many of you involved in our club as possible. We can then get in touch when more club spaces are available or let you know other ways you can be part of Team UOP.
