About Seido Karate

Seido Karate is a traditional Japanese style of karate. Seido founder, Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura has distilled the essence of what he has learned about the martial arts in over 50 years of study, practice, and teaching.

The World Seido Karate Organization officially opened its headquarters on October 15, 1976, in New York City. We are now a worldwide organization, with thriving branches throughout the United States and in such diverse places as Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand, South Africa, and South America. Nevertheless, within Seido, growth of our branch schools is not pursued for its own sake. Quality of instruction and development of the student is paramount.

The physical training in Seido can be strenuous, emphasizing progressive development of strength, flexibility and aerobic capacity. In addition to developing students with the highest level of physical skill, Seido aims to develop individuals of the highest moral character.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about the World Seido Karate Organization, its founder, leadership and the philosophy that makes Seido Karate so applicable to today’s life. Each UK dojo has its own character but we all have a strong unity and follow Kaicho Nakamura’s teaching which embodies the “Human Face of Karate”. We care !
