As we have our own dojo, we’re able to share our space with other aligned cultural groups, so they too can practise and enjoy their own form of art. If you’re interested in giving any of the classes below a go, contact the organiser directly. Non Seido Karate members welcome.

Tai Chi (Chinese Martial Art)
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art, originally used for self defence. In modern times, it’s seen primarily a gentle form of exercise to promote physical and mental health through breath and movement. It aims to achieve harmony between the mind and body and cultivate a strong life energy within.
Ground Wrestling Techniques
Ground wrestling teaches practical self defence techniques that can be used when fighting on the ground. It emphasises technique over physical strength, and draws on influences such as Jiu-Jitsu. Ground wrestling techniques are particularly useful as they are not taught in our regular karate classes, as kumite or sparring takes place in a standing position.
