Health and Safety
All members must purchase a martial arts license when training with UEA Karate. This is a uniform measure across any reputable martial arts club nationwide. A martial arts license protects you in the event of you incurring an injury or to you causing one in self defence outside of a dojo. Licenses from previous clubs that are still in date are accepted. If you are a new member the price for a years licence through KUGB is £27, you can apply for a licence by clicking here.
Licenses will be checked after the first month of training, past this time any members without licenses will be turned away as a matter of health and safety. Please make sure you have one!
To keep up to date with our socials make sure to check our Facebook and Instagram. If you have any ideas for the year make sure to contact Tatum, your social secretary.
Last year we had one social every week & our biggest hits were our Halloween martial arts bar crawl & I do Martial Arts Get Me Out Of Here social!
UEA Karate competes at the British Universities and Colleges Sport every year in February. Last year we received 2 medals and each year we aim to add at least one more! All members are encouraged to attend however competition spaces are limited so where positions are over-subscribed members will have to compete to get the spot.
BUCS is currently cancelled for 2021 but if this changes competitors will be made aware & we hope to be able to compete at other comps in the coming year.
