The Madison Japanese Karate Club is one of the oldest Martial Arts clubs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It is sponsored by the Division of Recreation & Wellbeing, and it is a registered student organization.

Participation is open to all UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff. We start a new beginners class every semester, and for the 2019 Fall semester it will start at 5:30 pm on Monday, September 16th, in room 510 at Lathrop Hall. The weekly workouts are MW 5:30 - 7:00 in room 510, Lathrop Hall, and Fridays 6 to 8 in the multupurpose room at the Student Activity Center. You can come join us at any workout.

We practice Traditional Karate in the Shotokan style. Instruction is given from the most basic level and increases in difficulty as the participants learn the techniques required to control their body and mind. All 3 traditional components of karate training (kata, kihon, and kumite) are taught at the dojo.

While the instruction centers on karate as a martial art, portions of the training involve self defense applications and karate as competitive sport. Our club regularly sends teams of men and women to regional and national competitions.

The Madison Japanese Karate Club is affiliated nationally with the American Amateur Karate Federation, and internationally with the World Traditional Karate-Do Federation. All ranking is done under their auspices.
