EMESKAI-Karate is a karate school that was developed in 1971 in Aachen's university sports. Through the structured design of our courses, which start with the absolute basics, beginners quickly learn karate techniques relevant to self-defense and sports fighting (Kumite). Since its beginning, our competitors have been able to successfully step up onto the podium several times at the German University Championships and other tournaments. The goal of the Level 1 course is to prepare students for successful participation in their first belt examination.
