The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Karate


Who can do karate?


Where can you do karate?

At the community center or at home using a sparring dummy from the preteen section for 10LPs.

How can you do karate?

Clicking on the karate objects (sparring dummy or wooden karate board) on the left hand side of the downstairs of the community center

What are the karate options?

Sparring Dummy:

  • One punch- 10 minutes
  • Quick duel- 1 hour
  • Karate practice- 6 hours
  • Lengthy battle- 12 hours

Wooden Karate Board:

  • Karate Chop!- 1 minute 30 seconds
  • Extended Session- 20 minutes

What are the levels?

  1. Yellow belt
  2. Red belt
  3. Blue belt
  4. Purple belt
  5. Brown belt
  6. Black belt

What do you win?

This isn’t like other hobbies, you don’t find collectibles but you do unlock karate related items when you level up, such as wallpaper and decorations.

  1. Door
  2. Poster
  3. Lamp
  4. Wallpaper
  5. Award
  6. Figurine






Why does this hobby not show up with a collection in the hobby tab?

This and Ballet do not show up because you don’t unlock a collectible each time you complete the hobby, you only get the rewards shown above when you level up for the first time. You will receive no other rewards.

  1. So, one of my preteens has reached black belt! Does that mean I can’t do any more with the hobby? The hobby symbol is grayed out and I can’t see it in the listings, so I wonder if that means I should just find something else for my preteens to do?

  2. I think karate (as well as ballet) has been removed since the September pet park update.
    I only can see diving and figure skating at the list of hobbies for preteens…

    • No they haven’t been removed as hobbies they are just no longer on the hobby collections screen as they aren’t like other hobbies as you don’t find an item each time you do ballet or karate 🙂

  3. After you get black belt do you get lp or anything else

  4. I have a feeling that pretty much after you complete the karate and the ballet hobbies and have your preteen at the highest grade there is really nothing else that you need to do on preteen ever again

  5. My preteens are both on yellow belt at a 100% and I can’t move them to the next level

    • What options are you doing? If you haven’t already tried the longest one try that. Or you could put them both on diving and back on karate, you will have to do the first level again but it might move on to the next level that time

  6. I have reached level three, but the only thing I have unlocked is the lamp. What else was I supposed to have unlocked?

  7. I don’t have the Competition Center open and am not sure I’m going to. I wish the Karate Hobby earned LPs as at least it is interesting and fun to watch. Diving and Figure Skating are boring after you’ve watched a couple of times, even at level 6. I had my Preteen girl doing Figure Skating, along with a Teen and a couple of Adults, but now I have no one doing Skating as it’s only 3 LPs and boring. I have my Preteen girl doing Karate right now, even though it doesn’t earn anything, because I like to see her advance and beat up on the dummy 😉 I may rethink opening the Comp Ctr just for her.

    • I don’t sit and watch them completing hobbies but I think watching any of them would become boring very quickly 😛
      The competition center is okay, I don’t really use it that much because your sim has to be in there for a whole day but it is worthwhile if you are struggling for LPs

  10. i have my preteen boy in black belt, but when a do so he can be a teenager is the black belt so gone??

  11. I have completed karate hobby to level 6 but didn’t got any notification of unlocking of any item ( as listed above) , could u tell how to check what items I unlocked and where can i get those items?

  12. I have a preteen who is top level of this hobby. If I age her up into a teen, will she instantly loose her skill or will she keep it until she gets a new hobby?

  13. Can I buy a sparring dummy to start this hobby, or does it have to be in the community center?

  14. I have 3 preteens(2 girls and 1 boy), two completed the karate and ballet hobby so now all three are diving one at Lv 5 the other two Lv 4 and I find that doing the longest time at 12hours level the, up faster since the diving hobby has 12 items and I have two left.

    I am planning on aging one to a teen(probably the first female child I had) and should I add one baby for each person I age?? I don’t really know how most people play but I try to have an even number of male and female whether he or she is a baby or just makes it easy to find them
    a husband or wife.. and not quite sure what to do when they are teens.

    I had a question if a father had one child with one wife, and divorced her and remarried but had two kids with another would it still count as three children? Since they are living seperate but the other child can ‘visit’..that would be very weird but I haven’t tried it.

    • If you added a sim for each one you aged you would reach your sim count fairly quickly! But again its really up to you, you ask me a lot of questions that there isn’t really a correct answer for, its just what you decide and your opinion is probably very different from mine so if you want to add a sim when you age one then you should!

      No it wouldn’t because the limit is 2 children in the same house so you would be able to add 2 to the new house and the other child can visit
