Welcome to Seido Karate
Welcome to the UK branch of the World Seido Karate Organisation. Our branch chief is Roger Thyer-Jones (Sei Shihan, senior 6th) dan)
Seido is a traditional style of karate, formed on 15th October 1976 by Tadashi Nakamura. Since then Seido has grown substantially, with clubs in many countries, including seven in the United Kingdom. UK headquarters are in High Wycombe and are lead by Roger Thyer-Jones (Jun Shihan, 6th dan).
Seido karate stresses above all the philosophy that karate should teach 'Technique before Strength, Spirit before Technique'. If you train with us, you will undoubtedly become stronger and develop sound karate technique, but most of all, Seido aims to build students with a strong spirit and attitude towards karate, and life. This 'non-quitting' spirit is a modern interpretation of the bushido (martial way) of the Japanese samurai.
Seido provides a structured environment for learning karate. The discipline and etiquette of a Japanese-based martial art creates a serious and respectful atmosphere in the dojo, and yet there is a genuine friendliness between students. If you feel you would like to visit us, please come and join in and give it a go - or simply watch a class. We look forward to having you along!
