Skills of a Samurai,
Lessons for Life.

Seido Karate is a versatile, mentally engaging, affordable fitness program that strengthens mind, body and spirit. While we train hard in the dojo and strive to constantly push ourselves, safety and self-control are fundamental to our philosophy. The term “Seido” is Japanese for “sincere way”, and embodies our founder’s belief that true karate comes not only from physical fitness, but involves the improvement of all aspects of a person’s life. Karate is not just a sport, it is a way of living, which empowers students to grown mentally, morally, and physically and to better understand themselves and navigate life with confidence.
