Elvis started karate lessons with Jürgen Seydel, who was known as the "father of German karate." Karate was a discipline with which Elvis had been fascinated ever since he read a magazine article about Hank Slamansky, an ex-Marine who pioneered in teaching the Sport in the Service. He would take lessons from Seydel twice a week.
