The OSU Karate Club is open to all styles at all belt
levels, from beginner to advanced.
A typical club training session is organized as follows: The first twenty
minutes or so consists of warm-up exercises. After warm-up, there is a
structured workout that includes learning and practicing defensive techniques
(blocking, punching, kicking) and grappling (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu). We
also learn and practice techniques involving short stick (Kali), staff (bo),
sai, kamma, tonfa, and other traditional Okinawan self-defense weapons.
The remaining time is spent on various activities such as kata practice,
heavy bag drills, self-defense, sparring, and ground fighting.
Membership fee is $10 for the Fall semester, $10 for the Spring semester,
and $5 for the Summer session.
The Karate Club meets on Fridays 7-9 PM
in the Combatives room at the Colvin Center.
