Do you want to practice martial arts?

Come and visit us at the University Karate Club (UKK) in our Dojo at Sammen City at Vestre Strømkaien 7.


You do not need any prior knowledge of karate to become a member of our club. Just come to one of our training session wearing light workout clothes. Beginners will recieve Karate suit (gi) when they pay membership fee. We are open to new members throughout the semester.

Karate is a versatile and functional training form that strengthens body and mind. In UKK you will learn the style of Chito-ryu karate. In this style, natural techniques for effective self-defense, and minimizing strain injuries is emphasized.


Our training schedule is:

Monday:             15:30 - 16:30 - martial arts room at Sammen City

Wednesday:      17:00 - 18:30 - martial arts room at Sammen City

Friday:                 19:00 - 20:30 - martial arts room at Sammen City


We practice traditional karate, with a focus on personal development and a realistic approach to effective techniques. Self-defence therefore becomes an integral part of the trainings. Moreover, karate should be healthy, edifying and have a positive effect on concentration and mental endurance, which everyone can benefit from.

Karate is more than just learning to fight and self-defence. Training increases speed, balance and strength, and improves mobility, resilience and endurance, as well as exercising concentration and willpower. Karate training builds core muscles, improves body control, accuracy and increased mental focus.


The membership fee is 400,- NOK for beginners. Beginners get karate suit (“gi”) included.
