Martial Arts Self Defense

A Way To A Better You with Ryoku Seikido

Martial Arts Self Defense classes in London Ontario founded from Taekwondo and Aikido.

Ryoku Seikido is part of the World Seikido Organization. We are also affiliated with The Canadian Alliance of Martial Arts Not-for-Profit.

With these two affiliations we are able to offer Martial Arts Training for $25.00 per month. Please see our Membership page for more details.

For the past 18 years the Ryoku family of students have been practicing the art of Seikido which is at its foundation a Mixed Martial Art.


Seikido is a relatively new martial art based on Aikido and Tae Kwon Do. Both are founded in older martial arts, including Japanese Shotokan Karate and Jujitsu. It is the blending of the most modern and scientifically correct techniques derived from Tae Kwon Do, Aikido and other arts that makes Seikido unique.

Over the past 35 years Grand Master Zeke Petkovic of World Seikido has built upon these foundational arts. The result are the developed techniques unique to Seikido. These include throwing and pinning techniques to neutralize high kicks, and striking techniques to disable grappling attacks.

In addition to sparring practice utilizing Boxing and Kickboxing principals, releases from holds, throws and pins are essential aspects of Seikido self-defense training. With your training you will receive the benefit of a whole body workout at your own speed along with learning Martial Arts and Self Defense.

No matter your age, Children, Teens, Adults and Seniors all have benefited from our training which includes increased strength, cardiovascular workout, coupled with increased flexibility and overall wellness. All done at your own pace so you can reach your own individual goals!
