A 45 year history and
home to a global community of karateka.

Honbu (“headquarters”) is the central dojo for the worldwide Seido community. The very first Seido dojo, founded by Kaicho T. Nakamura in October 1976, it continues to serve as a home base for the Seido Karate Organization and to uphold the high qualities of teaching and strong core principles that make our style unique. In 2021, the new Honbu location on West 30th Street officially opened its doors, kicking off an exciting new chapter in Seido history. This recently renovated state-of-the-art facility will serve as Seido’s new home, and is slowly inviting students back to in-person classes in adherence with COVID safety guidelines.  

Karate for everyone: Kaicho
T. Nakamura’s vision

Bushido

Traditional Karate Training.

Seido Karate is a mentally engaging style of martial arts training that strengthens mind, body, and spirit. At our dojos we emphasize discipline, respect, and safety, as well as fostering a welcoming and supportive environment. With help from our skilled and dedicated teachers, you will gain skills that have lasting benefits in all areas of your life.

The Seido training program is made up of:

  • Basic strength and flexibility (each class begins with stretching)
  • Mastering Karate forms and techniques
  • Self-defense strategies and techniques
  • Semi-contact and contact kumite (sparring)
  • Kata
  • Meditation

Inclusive

Our classes cater to karate students of all gender identities, ages and abilities. We also offer adaptive programs for visually impaired students and those with developmental and learning disabilities.

Kids & Teens Programs

We have a robust kids and teens program, starting for children as young as four. All classes are taught by experienced instructors who have been trained to provide a fun and rewarding training experience that meets the unique needs of children of all ages.

Meditation

Zen Meditation

An integral part of Seido training are Zen meditation classes and lectures on Japanese philosophy given by Kaicho Nakamura. Meditation in Seido is a non-religious practice, but is inseparable from physical training, as true karate strives to develop both the physical body and a calm, focused mind. We also conduct outdoor and community bonding events such as our annual sunrise beach training which includes “sitting zazen” surrounded by nature.
