Shotokan Karate at USC Munich

About Us

Although “USC” stands for “University Sports Club”, being a university graduate is not a prerequisite for membership. You won’t be excluded after graduation and not all members are university graduates.

The “USC Munich” is a registered Sports Club. Its subdivisions are affiliated with the respective professional associations of the BLSV (Bavarian Federal State Sports Association). Every member of a USC subdivision is therefore fully entitled for participation in contests and other events organized by the BLSV. Furthermore the “USC Munich” and its subdivisions are governed by German registered society laws.

The Karate subdivision of the USC Munich is a member of the Bavarian Karate Association BKB and therefore member of the German Karate Association DKV. The latter is organized as a professional association within the German Olympics Sports Association (Deutscher Olympischer Sportbund).

Membership

You can give our training a try for free. Please choose a convenient training session and introduce yourself to the responsible trainer just before participating.

Beginner Classes

KaratedoEvery mid April and mid October we are starting new Karate beginner classes. You may join Beginner’s Classes at any time later too.
The class taking place in the gym of the Pestalozzi-Gymnasium school is open and free for everyone, as long as you attend steadily. To attend the classes at the University Sport Center “ZHS” you will need a ZHS-ID.

A Karate gear is not required for the Beginner’s class. We recommend attendees to wear loose-fitting, body-concealing clothing, such as sweats and T-Shirts. When you join the Intermediate class, you will be asked to buy a karate uniform (keiko-gi). At the end of the course you can take the test for the white belt and become a member of the USC.

For further questions feel free to join our group on facebook and/or write an email.
