Yes you can join karate classes as its been can join the training classes.
Avoiding direct pressure can be avoided on elbow that is direct training on person.

And before you start please have an evaluation with your surgeon about the condition of ur elbow, its range, muscle power and the joint z free from any complications. Your surgeon has to decide about your limitation.

You have to take more precaution,if you experience any difficulties or pain during training, but usually nothing will happen.
