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.

“We're all treated equally in this dojo!”

“As a relatively new student to the Devonport Karate dojo (I joined after my daughter did), I’ve come to appreciate and love the even-handedness in the approach of the leadership. Men and women train together and women are not treated any differently on the dojo floor to men. I love the fact that my daughter, my son and I can do the same classes together and we all get to benefit!”
– Marcel Norkia
