Traditionally, the BUCS Karate Championship has both individual and team championships.
There are two different types of karate competitions that students take part in:
- Kata - this has three different levels dependent on students experience
- Kumite - this is based on students weights and experience.
The BUCS Karate Championships 2023-24 will be part of BUCS Nationals held on 24tg-25th February 2024 at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
Students can also compete internationally and represent the GB Students team at the World University Championships.
