Music City Karate - Putting The Martial Arts In Baltimore County's Arts and Entertainment District

Catonsville Seido Karate is proud to be located in "Music City Maryland". We're turning up the volume and bringing the martial arts to Baltimore County's Arts and Entertainment District!

We provide traditional Japanese karate training for self-development, self-defense, and physical fitness for adults of all ages, teens, and children ages 8 and up. Our classes are located in the Mount DeSales / Edmondson Ridge neighborhood of Catonsville -- convenient to Route 40 west and the Beltway, and just 15 minutes from downtown Baltimore.

Our adult/teen class welcomes students 13+ -- older adults are welcome, it is never too late to start. Whether you're in your teens or your 70s you are welcome to join us and explore the benefits of Seido Karate training. We love absolute beginners! No prior martial arts, sports, or athletic experience is necessary.

Our youth class is geared towards elementary and middle school age students, age 8-13. Parents are welcome to train with their children.

Our chief instructor is Jun Shihan Tom Swiss, a sixth-degree black belt with over thirty years experience. (And an amateur singer/songwriter!)
