UC Berkeley's Martial Arts Program

Karate, the Japanese art of self-defense, focuses on kicking, punching, blocking and other combative techniques. Board breaking is practiced as a demonstration of mental discipline and good technique. Of ancient origin, Karate is practiced throughout the world in many different styles. At Cal, all styles of Karate are incorporated into one general class.
