UCD Karate Introduction | Dublin, Ireland


I’ve been doing it now for 12 years When I came UCD three years ago I joined the club and it was great there’s lovely people in karate, they’re always really interesting, really fun and it’s alright exercise I joined karate after I came back from my international year abroad in Australia While I was there actually one of my very close friends was attacked, she was mobbed and that incident actually kind of prompted me to think about self-defence and protecting myself feeling comfortable just walking around on campus and walking around in cities so I decided to join the martial arts went down to the Fresher’s stand and went into the hall and checked out all the clubs and I really liked the people at the karate stand they seem really friendly so I signed up and here I am Wanted to be a Power Ranger, pretty much that watching Power Ranger and
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and one day dad turned around and said “do you wanna try it” and I said “yeah” told me I was gonna be a Power Ranger, that’s how I joined the club is very easy going, like a you train with people that are relaxed definitely the people, I mean training is fun It’s a great way to release kind of a bit of anger if you have any or if you want to get a good workout but definitely the people are really really fun to hangout with Great social aspect,
really really good friendly people We just get on quite well there’s quite a lot of clubs with the hierarchy but it’s not really here everyone just kind of chats with everybody, it’s great ah we’re a pretty socialable club we do a lot of things to do with karate so we go to some courses at the weekend and there’s a trip to Edinburgh once a year if you’re interested in that but we also have some time for actually And we’re doing our first ever Fresher’s weekend in Donegal so it will be fantastic that’s a that’s a great way to meet people so we do three trainings a week for
everybody and then we have two extra trainings in town that more advance people can come to so you can train on
