About Us

Meet Our Instructors

Goju-Ryu Seiwa-Kai Karate of LA traces its origins back to the very roots of Goju-Ryu in Japan. Our instructors honor these strong traditions in their teachings. You will learn to make every movement count, right from the beginning of your training. Self discipline and mutual respect are of upmost importance. Every student is coached to improve their individual karate practice in a welcoming group setting.

While extremely humble, our instructors rank amongst the very best in the world. Shihan Vassie Naidoo is extremely knowledgeable and imparts his love of karate to each of his students. All of our instructors are highly knowledgeable of Goju-Ryu Seiwa-Kai and have many years of experience teaching both adults and children.
