We are looking forward to seeing all of you again at training this week ?

Please make a special effort to come down on Monday, as afterwards we will have our first games night of the year with snacks and soft drinks, after we work up a good hunger from training!

Why not bring a friend along too? Whether you’re new to karate or an experienced karateka, we’re always happy to welcome new members, so grab a friend and introduce them to what is sure to become a lifelong passion.

Karate Surf Trip – 19th to 21st October

Our annual surf trip is coming up. So everyone work on those horse-stances, and put ’em to use when we hit those gnarly waves!

This year we are making our way down to Tramore. We have a fun weekend planned with surf lessons, and weather permitting, karate on the beach. It’s a wonderful weekend where you’ll have the chance to bond with your UCD Karate teammates and really get to know them.

Now for the best part, the total price for this trip is €60 (excl. lunch and dinner). Our accommodation will have a full kitchen so a team cooked, team dinner is a definite! This price is dependent on numbers, so make sure to bring a friend along too, all they have to do is join karate.

Please make sure you sign up here. We will need deposits* (€40) in by this Wednesday the 3rd of October in order to finalise cost and bookings. If you can’t make it down to training, please contact us and we will arrange to meet you on campus, or organise an online transfer.
