We welcome everyone who wants to give Seido Karate a go – we have dedicated classes and instructors that will get you started. Typically a beginner will train in any or all of the three weekly beginner classes for 1 to 3 months before their first grading. In that time you will learn the beginners syllabus which includes basic punches, blocks, kicks, stances and terminology. You will also learn some self-defence techniques along with strength and fitness exercises, and the etiquette of the dojo.
Seido students come from all walks of life! We have kids starting out from 5, or adults giving it a go after years of being at a gym and not seeing results. It will cost you nothing to give it a try. The safety of each student is of paramount concern to the instructors. You are welcome to watch if you prefer. Come down and watch a beginners class and talk to the people there.
