The Combat Academy Karate team practice a style of Karate called Modern Contact Karate. This is a Kickboxing based style which has taken many of the best parts of traditional karate, western boxing and Muay Thai to combine and form its syllabus.
Do not be put off by the word contact as there are many variations and levels of competition for those that wish to take part, including:
Non Contact - Skilled use of techniques where speed and reflex wins
Semi Contact - Controlled point fighting
Light Continuous - Controlled non stop point fighting
Full Contact - Full on karate match where the aim is to knock your opponent out
Low Kick - As above but with kicks to the legs allowed.
K1 & Muay Thai - For those that want even more of a challenge than Low Kick
