Our Dojo, located in Mornington, has a history of over 48 years, ingrained with the tradition of Bugeido Shotokan Karate-Do. Shihan Geoff Reddish, our founder, began this journey in 1976, and since then, we’ve become one of the largest independent karate organisations in Tasmania.

At Bugeido, we don’t just teach karate – we mentor our students on a journey of growth through the practice of a traditional martial arts. Join us and discover the transformative power of karate.

Our 10-year-old son started karate a year ago after not feeling confident in his own ability to defend himself. Since this time, he has grown more confident and is more disciplined in his concentration. He is now almost 11 and he loves karate and is happy he has finally found an activity that he looks forward to.  The Bugeido karate school keeps to the traditions of karate as a martial art and is what we were looking for to teach him about the importance of history, tradition and commitment.



I commenced my training with Bugeido way back at the age of seven. Now, 21 years later and I’m still here. Even after a short break from training, it’s as much home to me now (if not more) as it was when I was growing up all through my pre-teen and teen years. The quality of instruction I have received through this school is second to none and I’d recommend the school to anyone. Aside from the technical skill I have acquired, the self-discipline and the drive to be the best I can be attitude developed have played a very big part in my success to date in my professional career also. A big thumbs up from me!
