Seido Junior Program

The Seido Junior Program teaches a modified karate syllabus, with the same grade structure as the adult program. The program introduces children to the many benefits of traditional karate training such as fitness, focus, respect, courtesy, self-defence and most importantly; a non-quitting spirit.

Seido Adult Program

We will teach you the true way of Karate, or ‘Karate-Do’, a way to develop total fitness: mind, body and spirit. Our introductory system allows you to ease into the training program slowly and safely. You progress at a pace consistent with your ability and level of fitness, to realise your true potential as a student of Seido Karate.

‘Seido Juku’

‘Sei’ — truth, honesty, sincerity.

‘do’ — way.

‘Juki’ — a small place where one goes to study, learn and grow.

Getting Started

First Things First

If you’re thinking about starting Seido karate - whether you’re a beginner or have previous martial arts training - it’s best to contact us and organise a day and time to come in. Arrive 10 minutes before the class starts so that we can give you a quick tour.

Kids Getting Started

We recommend the kids start-up pack for only $219 which includes a karate uniform and entire school term of training. We’ll need to know what size your child is before they arrive, so make sure to tell us when you ring to book a time to come in.

Adults Starting

Every Monday at 6.30pm we hold free introductory beginners classes for you to try karate. Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing such as a t-shirt and full-length tracksuit pants (no shorts or skirts).
