History of Meath Karate
The club was started in 2012 by Adrian Collender. Meath Karate is a Wadokai club. We offer all the self-defence aspects of karate but also have an interest in sport karate. We have had several Irish and European champions. The philosophy is that everyone is equally important. Children and adults can train for grading, fitness and/or competition.
