Shoto Karate Seaford - Building a Better Future with Martial Arts.

We Encourage Passion, Creativity and Respect.

Our Shoto Karate dojo is located in the beautiful Bayside suburb of Seaford in Melbourne. 

Karate offers a unique platform for building more resilient, considerate and energetic people. We seek to excel in physical fitness as well as self-defence training using karate and other forms of martial arts while encouraging our students through fun fitness challenges.

Students develop improved speed, strength, flexibility, balance and cardiovascular fitness thanks to new levels of confidence that their training offers.

When first starting out at Shoto karate, our dojo offers support as well as encouragement to help students progress on their journey towards bettering themselves through time-honored standards and structures of the Shotkan martial arts tradition. We are constantly striving to  build a dojo that has a positive spirit of cooperation where our students feel a sense of pleasure working together and helping each other.

“I chose Jerry Hastings Shotokan karate  club because first impressions last. My son needed help with his focus and balance. I researched a little bit and karate was the most recommended option. Upon meeting Jerry, I knew that I had chosen the right club. Not only have the results been exceptional  but the additional benefit of the growth of my son’s self-confidence has been amazing. I cannot recommend Jerry’s club enough.
