What the Students Say

You will be taught by Black Belt Instructors, some of whom have been personally trained by Grandmaster Tadashi Nakamura in New York. The instructors are not only chosen for their years of experience and teaching ability, but also for their sensitivity and desire to help others.

“Joining Seido Karate has been one of the best decisions in my life. My weight has dramatically decreased, my flexibility and muscle strength have dramatically increased and I’ve never felt better in terms of health. However, not all the benefits have been purely physical. In terms of mental benefits, I’ve become a much calmer and more confident person. As my karate improves, I can definitely see changes in me as a person and as a human being. My discipline and achievement has led to self respect, which in turn leads to respect for my peers. I have learned to look up to my seniors, in the hope that I may too one day learn to emulate their achievements. Thank you for this opportunity.” AB

“Seido Karate symbolizes something of great value to me: perseverance and a non-quitting spirit. These fundamental principles provide me with the discipline to have great focus in my daily life while simultaneously being energized and calm. The word Seido, the sincere way, embodies my belief of leading an authentic life in a world seduced and distracted by a “virtual” reality. Seido Karate has changed me by giving me greater clarity in what really matters in life: respect, love and obedience; and to treat one day as a lifetime, because the journey is the destination.” NZ

“…My purpose for training has evolved since I began taking Seido Karate. When I started, I was seeking rigourous physical training in which I would learn a useful skill. Since I began taking classes, reading the Seido websites, and because of Kyoshi’s comments during class, I have tried to incorporate the level of concentration and focus that I apply in class to other aspects of my life… “ SD

“… I did not think that I could do something like Seido Karate, but by coming each week and working hard in class, it has made me see I can do this! This belief in myself has made me more confident in all things that I do… “ SJ

“There are two main reasons for learning karate. The first is the reason I started, the second has arisen as I’ve learnt the art… I have always felt a need to know how to protect myself out of situations without hurting anyone seriously. I have also found that Seido Karate has given me a strength and patience that I never knew I had before that brings itself out in my work and in my relationships. “ MC
