Wellington Seido Hui

Sei Shihan Lance, Jun Shihan Sandra & Jun Shihan Dave travelled to Wellington for a Hui to connect with others from one end of the country to the other. 

Re-connecting with old friends. This photo shows the strength & depth of Seido Karate. 

Special thanks to Seido Wellington for hosting this wonderful event.

Black Belt Board

After over 40 years we have finally updated our Black Belt board. 

Seido Karate Timaru has produced 70 Black Belts in that time. 

Thanks to Sean and the team from Geraldine Signs (Branded Kiwi).

REMEMBRANCE - Sensei Peter Cosgrove

It is with honor and gratitude we were visited by Kyoshi Levi Cosgrove and his mother Nola into the dojo tonight: where Kyoshi Levi hung Sensei Peter Cosgroves Black Belt.

Kyoshi Levi's father, Sensei Peter, who passed away in March 2019, was a huge part of Timaru Seido Karate spanning decades. We are so grateful to the family for bringing his belt home to the dojo.

For those who wonder about the belts hanging from height, this signifies the memory and spirit of these people who have passed on, but have, and always will be a part of our Seido family. 

Osu, Sei Shihan Dave



Follow this link to the first  "Hunkering Down" issue, a Seido Syllabus Weekly Blog from Shibu.

The link contains articles from dojos all around the world,and at 26 pages long it is an awesome read - especially when many of us have extra time on our hands.

From Kyoshi Ellen – Editor in chief:

We hope you enjoy the heartfelt messages and tips. Seido is a worldwide martial art and we have kiwis karatekas in many of our international Seido dojos, including New York City, our Headquarters. The theme of this 1st edition is geographical with a snap-shot of what is going on, and where. We will keep to this geo theme and will work on solutions and strategies for the next edition. So look out for the acorn coffee, Sei Shihan Kelvin's and Kyoshi Ali's fitness regimes, success stories from the Grapevine from Sei Shihan Bu, and find out just how Jun Shihan Andew Davies walks through life in his steelcaps.

Osu, a tribute to Kaicho, Nidaime and Senpai Meg for reigniting the flame of Seido with their Mobile dojo. Today there were Seido comrades training in Kaicho's Black Belt class from all over the world, including our own Hanshi Renzie.
