About Seido Wellington

Seido Wellington welcomes anyone who wants to learn karate in a friendly and safe environment. Seido Wellington began in 1983 by Shuseki Sei (7th Dan) Shihan Ben Otang who has recently retired after 50 years of service. The Head of Dojo is Sei Shihan Peter Flowers who, with a team of experienced black belts,  offers you the chance to experience an exciting and challenging martial art.

The club runs a full range of classes for children and adults, from beginners through to more experienced levels. Once you’ve completed your beginners’ course, you’ll work through a structured system that promotes you gradually from one grade to another. Light contact sparring begins after you’ve trained with us for a couple of years.

Seido Wellington offers special interest sessions open to anyone: stretch/yoga, and fitness. The dojo also has a fully-equipped gym. Seido Wellington is unique in the Wellington region in running a weekly karate class for children and young adults with Downs Syndrome. Whatever your grade, age or ability, you’ll always have the chance to train with a group.
