Karate club was started in NITT with the aim of making Martial Arts, Yoga & Meditation, common in the life of students. Here, stress is given primarily in making exercises and practise of Karate simple & easy enough to be practised by a professional student. In the club, the martial arts are taught in such a way that it becomes easier for the student to reach the tougher levels of Karate once he has mastered the basics. We never aim to spread our knowledge of Martial Arts for monetary purposes. We keep special provisions for dedicated & financially poor students. We believe that Martial Art is a holy practice for reaching the ultimate level of Buddha.
