Bede Brosnahan (Sensei, 4th dan)

Seido Karate London was founded in 1991 by Sensei Julie Hughey, Kyoshi Ceri Evans and Kyoshi John Esposito.

We started training in Fulham at the Sands End Community Centre, and moved in 1994 to the Arts Educational Schools in Turnham Green.

Although the founding members have since returned to their native New Zealand their legacy remains with our current dojo heads, Sensei Bede Brosnahan and Sensei Matt Sherratt who are also originally from New Zealand.

We are a non-profit making club, and our instructors are not paid to teach. Our fees are therefore extremely competitive.

Nowadays the club is notable for the wide range of students we have training with us. For example, countries represented in the dojo include France, Switzerland, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Scotland, and, of course, England. This, plus the good range of ages and the fact that we have a strong female membership, gives the dojo a cosmopolitan and friendly atmosphere. After training, we often end up at the local pub to reinforce the kizuna (friendships) which have formed after many training sessions together.
