About

Oldest martial arts club in the University with some of the best coaches in Britain. We attend loads of competitions and teach self-defence and sparring, with opportunities to grade every term!

Swansea Universtiy Karate is the oldest martial arts club in the University with a proud tradition of producing National Champions!

We welcome all levels of experience from complete beginner to experienced karateka.

Sessions are broken down into Sparring (Kumite), patterns (Kata), self-defence, and pad work. Sparring is semi-contact and is completely optional. No-one is ever forced to participate in sparring, but it is a lot of fun and those who try it always enjoy it.

We attend several competitions every year, with the biggest being the University Championships (BUCS) in Sheffield. This takes place over a weekend and is a fantastic experience, giving everyone the chance to win some shiney medals. We are taught by some of the best coaches in the UK who attend all of our competitions with us and we have access to the Welsh international squad!

Karate Prifysgol Abertawe yw’r clwb crefft ymladd henaf yn y Brifysgol gyda thraddodiad balch o gynhyrchu Pencampwyr Cenedlaethol!

Croeso cynnes i bobl o bob lefel o brofiad, o ddechreuwyr i karateka profiadol.

Mae sesiynau’n cael eu rhannu mewn i sesiynau paffio (Kumite), patrymau (Kata), hunanamddiffyn, a gwaith pad.  Mae’r sesiynau paffio yn hanner-gyswllt ac yn opsiynol. Nid ydy unrhyw un yn cael eu gorfodi i gymryd rhan wrth baffio, ond mae’n llawer o hwyl ac mae’r rhai sy’n drio bob tro yn mwynhau.

Rydym yn cystadlu mewn nifer o gystadlaethau bob blwyddyn, gan gynnwys yr un fwyaf - Pencampwyr Prifysgolion (BUCS) yn Sheffield. Mae hwn yn cael ei gynnal ar y penwythnos ac yn brofiad ardderchog sy’n rhoi’r cyfle i bawb ennill medalau sgleiniog. Rydym yn cael ein dysgu gan rhai o’r hyfforddwyr gorau ym Mhrydain sy’n mynychu ein cystadlaethau gyda ni ac mae gennym ni mynediad at y garfan genedlaethol Cymraeg.

For those that don't fancy the intensity of competitions, our training is a great way to keep fit, make freinds and have a laugh whilst learning some self-defence. We hold a grading at the end of every term for those who want to work their way to that famous black belt!

The karate club is known for its awsome socials including the exciting and original events over the course of freshers fortnight!
