The Dover dojo has been established for over 10 years.  It offers classes for both children and adults.

Perhaps the best testimony to Seido karate and specifically Sensei Mike's dojo is this article written by a Japanese guest who visited Seido in Dover.

What is Karate?
by Yoshiaki Futagami (Japanese)

I have found a real Japanese culture in karate at Dover, UK, which we Japanese already forgot it a long years ago.

After 1945, we Japanese were educated to forget the Japanese cultures and sometimes even to deny them, and then the educations of schools and homes have lost the ways now.   And, it produced many young people who fight and injure easily, bully the weakers, killing creatures, doing prostitution business, and forget the human's duties. (These may be common problems of many countries of today's world.)

The Japanese martial arts have taught the people about the human's duties, the necessity of respect the other people, guarding the weakes, and the importance of peace.

I know the karate and judo are now very popular sports in the world.  And, I also know that the reason why they are spreaded to world wide, because they are teaching to people the necessity of mental training, and NOT fight easily, but to love a peace and to respect the friends and parents and teachers and others.

I am very happy to find out the karate dojo (school)  where the teachers are teaching real mental training to children and young people.  I felt that their soft smiles are loving a peace, and their bowing meaning they respect any people beyond the borders and races.

Many thanks to Mr. Mike Knight who gave me a chance to know the real Japanese good culture.  I will introduce this back to Japan and to many other countries in the world.

Best regards
