  • Karate for Everyone


    There will be a new class for children starting on Thursday 26th July at 5pm. Jun Shihan Danny will be introducing a pad–work class! That is boxing on the hand pads.

    This is all part of the Karate Training so it is covered in the normal term fee. Children will need to protect their knuckles with leather gloves. If you have your own‚ make sure you bring them along or there will be gloves available at $25.00 per pair.

Children's Classes

Children‚ the future of Seido.

From the very first class‚ Seido Karate has direct application into the everyday lives of our students. While our children’s program promotes physical fitness and a practical method of self–defense‚ we foster a greater appreciation for self–control and mental awareness.

Fitness & Conditioning

Challenge yourself.

Our goal is to develop students to achieve more for themselves than they perhaps thought possible. By building confidence, self-discipline, physical fitness and camaraderie in a friendly‚ supportive and non-competitive envoironment students find that karate benefits their everyday lives.

Training Tips

Great experience to draw on.

Seido Karate is not about who can kick highest, is strongest‚ or can win a fight‚ but instead encourages individuals to strive to do their best and to challenge themselves by pushing beyond their perceived limitations while training in a safe and constructive envoironment.
