Why Train?

At Seido, the competition is with yourself, not with others. Our only goal is that each day, when you leave you are a little better than when you came. We provide you with the program, supervision and atmosphere that will allow you to realize your full potential for growth and achievement.

The physical training is strenuous, emphasizing progressive development of strength, flexibility, and aerobic capacity.

Seido aims to develop individuals of the highest moral character.

This goal is achieved by the integration of Zen meditation into every student’s practise. Seido stresses the unity and inseparability of karate and Zen. This is not a new idea, rather, it is a return to the origins of the martial arts.
